Fresh Produce

I haven't been getting much sewing done this summer, but have been doing some gardening. We have quite a few pickles in our garden so I made three kinds of pickles. The middle jar is my mother-in-law's recipe for refrigerator green tomatoes using pickles. The first jar is the same recipe with green tomatoes, yellow banana peppers and pickles. The third jar is my mom's recipe for refrigerator bread and butter pickles.

Blueberries are in season, so we bought five pounds.  I used some
to make a blueberry crisp.

Also made some blueberry muffins.

Cat Themed Present

My friend, Amy, likes cats. For her birthday, I made her pincushion using Laurel Burch fabric scraps from my stash.   I based the pincushion on this tutorial
