    Bright fresh fall colors in your deer quilt, QNS. Hard to believe that fall is just around the corner, and school will be starting.
    Nice to get an old UFO finished, Carrie. Way to go.
    I've been getting ready for company--working in the sewing room, tidying things up--don't want them to think I'm a total slob and the little GD's will be amazed when they come back from their trip to WI on Thursday. Tonight put 2 lasagnas in the freezer for later in the week.
    Hoof trimmer comes tomorrow and have a small lasagne ready to pop in the oven. Tomorrow going to make some meatballs. Nice to have food ready ahead of time--less time in the kitchen and more time for family. Then there's the lawn to mow--after 2 inches of rain on Friday we have GRASS. Wednesday is grocery shopping day--going to get some fresh melons and tomatoes at the Farmer's Market. Mine aren't ready yet. Going to call it a night! Rest well.
    Don't worry spider.

    OkSewGlad...it sounds like you're going to have a wonderful time with your family. It's so nice to go into a time like this with a clean house and food cooked ahead!

    Carrie...isn't it nice to have things finished? Good job.

    QNSue ... oh my goodness .. those quilts are stunning! I'd never heard of the Chains of Love pattern til you mentioned it, and it's a beauty. You have done a wonderful job of yoru Dear Deer ... great fabric combos and the attif windows. Stunning indeed. I know you said "memorial quilts" ... are these in memory of your FIL? And I believe you said the Chains are going to his sister? So I'm guessing the Deer are for his brother? So nice and considerate of you.

    Beautiful, beautiful quilts, QNS. I love the Rings pattern-that's new to me. And the colors you chose for them are great. You make such cheerful, colorful quilts.

    Yes, we plan to do the deed. grandparents who raised me butchered two steers and 4 hogs every year and we kids helped. I have their meat saw they used. We have butchered hogs in our marriage, and chickens. Never a turkey or duck, so it will be a new experience. My dh is a strong armed man, so he will do the heavier tasks for me.

    Our little peach tree has produced a bushel of peaches, I am working up today; also, doing grape jelly from the half bushel of grapes our vines produced. Nest blocks of PC will be due and must get to them sometime soon. Working on finishing a quilt for grandson, and one for Susan's daughter, border my blue nine patch and trellis quilt tops. Sinus are bad today, I can hardly see after being awake for an hour and my back is very sore, but thankful I can still move about. Thera-gesic time. Smile. The day has promise, but doubt if it will rain here. How we need the rain!!

    Thanks, Anne, we all (PC riders) do whatever we need to do as the occasion arises, as you yourself does also. My record for quilts in one month is six; but in all honesty, this time the deer top was already pieced together. One last batch of grape jelly and one pan of peach to do and wash up the mess and I am done in the kitchen for the day.

    Idle hands are a joy to the Devil; with Him, all things are possible. Its just an 'attitude' of can DO! Not the 'cannot do' or 'will not do'. I see a 'can do' attitude here so much and I love all on the trail ride...'cause my age is catching up with me, I tend to slow down a bit more than others here...but love their stories of their lives also. One was even kind enough to allow me to 'adopt' her grand daughters!! Fun!!.

    Sue your Turkeys look so very plump. Hmmmm Actually I've never had any turkey that wasn't store bought. We are gonna be wild turkey huntin' this fall so I guess I'll be eatin' wild turkey. It's supposed ta have a whang ta it. I hope it is good.
    I usually boil my fruit, separate my pulp, & freeze it till winter. I don't want ta make jelly in the heat o' summer. I love home made jelly & Jams. I have figured out ta make it w/splenda.

    Oh Bev what a great idea to freeze your fruit pulp until winter! I have apples that I'm doing a batch a day to make applesauce. We only have a very small apple tree, and I did not get it thinned enough, so the apples are really small. Oh well, I can handle a batch a day. I make my applesauce chunky, with brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Really yummy!
