    GardenGal, the CD arrived. Its an older format, or something, 'cause its not loading automatic or with a wizard...dd will try to help tomorrow. Unless it goes directly into the embroidery program...language is exp. for the Deco.

    Tomorrow is another day.

    Great blocks DD! I just read a postman here in the Netherlands didn't deliver part of the mail for 3 years ! ! ! Kept it all in his house. At least it's still there!

    Here is some more eye candy. I'm not so pleased with this as you can imagine. I have no idea how to get rid of them, I don't want to kill them to be honest. So I just might let them eat

    QNS...here is an address with the machines they design for and SW they use. It might help your DD. I know that the designed work on Janome. http://srvr18.ud.net/hatchedinafrica/index.html. I hope you can get it working.

    Anael...you could brush them into a jar of soapy water. They are varocious feeders.

    I removed about 30 of them, some are trying to crawl back
    Just came back from my bike ride. I didn't do that for a couple of days because I didn't feel too well but today was the day again
    Here's a picture I took, maybe one of you will know what this is/was.

    DD & Mirabelle what colorful eye candy Pretty blocks!!!

    Anael, the fuzzy thing is a pod of some sort that has burst open to spread it's seeds...we have milk weed in the field next door and looks similar to that...The catipillar? starts out as a moth and is now eating your plants...put on some rubber gloves and pick them off...you don't feel them so much that way.... My sister gave me some basil & parsley stems..I put them in water on the counter and couldn't figure out what all the black stuff was that was on the counter underneath the plants....I took a good look in the foilage and there were all these tiny beautiful black & bright yellow things...they were so pretty...I put the herbs on the back steps outside and let them eat away...There will be nothing left of the plant if you don't remove them..put them in a bucket of water and let nature do the rest...

    I finally realized why I can't seem to get anything done..DH distracts me all day long...

    Anael--looks like a thistle plant! It's been hot hot hot here. DIL and I are going to neighbors and picking some sweet corn later. Guess I have a full day ahead of me.

    Thanks Honchey. I did remove most of them already. I had a look on the internet and I read the kale will grow back once they're done. I will remove more if I have to.

    I thought that fuzzy thing might have been (or I should say still is) a thistle.

    Honchey, beautiful star that Dublb made for you.

    OK, do I need canning salt when I can de-boned chicken? We did not have any roosters, now we have too many, so tomorrow we start with five young roosters, de-bone the meat, and pack it into quart sized jars and process for 90 minutes at ten pounds. Morton salt I had on hand developed worms in it; never hear of it before, so dh went out on internet and discovered Morton had closed their main plant and subleased the salt process out to other places. Every one is finding the larvae and worms in the salt now. After the Spring Roosters are finished, then we start on the year old hens that are not laying eggs. I always leave the salt out when I can do so; no salt in any of the sweet corn; no sugar in any of the fruit. It can be added later, but its hard to take out of the canned or cooked food.

    Is the salt an added preservative??? I would check with Ball/Mason to see what they recommend..I'm sure they have online sites to check also...I know they have "no salt added" to alot of canned items today but is there another preservative added to compensate for that???

    I'm getting ready to visit Dsis for a couple of days...making sure I get a haircut this tme...I'm leaving in one hour...have to beat the Labor Day traffic....Later guys....

    Jan, Where are you??? QuiltE too!

    Blue book for canning does not mention salt. I would rather not add salt in canning, if I can add it later in cooking it up with noodles or dumplings.

    QNS--salt only if you want to. I add just a 1/2 t of table salt to my beef. The pressure canning process takes care of any need to use salt as a preservative.

    This is what Penn State says about using salt
    http://extension.psu.edu/food/preser...tes-in-canning

    Okay Jeanie what are you bringing to the RV to celebrate next week now that you will really be able to cook.

    DIL and I froze over 30 qts of corn today. DH and DS did help with the shucking and the bagging. Good job to get done.

    Thanks, OK, I thought you would know. Although I never left home until I married, I just don't remember everything that Grandma did with her canning.

    I never have managed to 'copy' her mincemeat recipe, she was German-Dutch and the recipe died with her. Not other family member alive today tasted her mincemeat that could help me. She used suet, gooseberries, and in the adult version, brandy. DD discovered my cooking brandy the last time she was here with her dh, much to their enjoyment...I have been known for a long married life of a 'dry' and free of any liquor in the house. But to every rule there's an exception and mincemeat attempts were the exception. An incident of three young cousins losing their parents and youngest member of their family to a 'drunken driver' when I was a teenager made an impression on me that I have never forgotten. It was later proven that the driver had suffered a heart attack and it was the combination of being at the wrong place at the wrong time killed them all. That is why it was called an 'accident'. The three children got excellent settlement from it but it never made up for the lost of the their parents and youngest sibling of four years old. So I learned at an early age how life could change in a moment of time.

    Celebrate life. Enjoy your loved ones.

    wheeeeeeeeee!!!! what beautiful eye candy MBs, and quilts!

    JeanieG ... have I missed something? that you have a new machine? what? Your quilting is lovely, great flowers! Watch out, DD suggesting the blue binding, is a sure sign that she wants her name on that quilt! I really like its soft and gentle look. I'm sure you feel like you've got the Best.News.Ever with the renos/rebuilds ends in sight!

    OKSGlad ... get your thinking cap on again ... I've been thinking of the burlap idea, and in colours too. I see burlap as bulky and wrinkled when unpacked each time. So ... What would take minimal space when packed between use and come out and look virtually wrinkle free? Covering those milk crates are the worse part of set up ... thin plastic, and needing to gift wrap them to perfection ... something pre-made would be oh so wonderful. Grrrrrrreat Classification News! Congratulations!! Should I be calling John and Nancy with updates? Looks like Corn Day was a real family "bonding" experience ... and soon there'll be the other Corn Days to bond over!

    DublB
    ... who should I congratulate for your latest MB?

    QNSue ... Glad that your eye problem was just an eyelash. Please please pleeeeeeeease slow down and let your body build up strength for your surgery and likewise after. I know you feel you have to do it ALL, though you want to "see" the results. Letting somethings slide for now, will pay great rewards. Your Dr. knows best! Tahiti Mist is looking grand.

    DDamsel ... **tucking you in with a real cosy quilt** for some of that much needed sleep. I'm sure the Dr.'s orders include some extensive quilting time all for YOU! Pupppieeeeeeeeees!!! So much fun to come for you and the kids!! (my Dalmatian was from a litter of 13!)

    GGal ... what a good looking family! You deserve to be proud, and how things turned out is a testament to you, for the love you have given over the years. I'm so happy that the six of you were able to turn a difficult sad situation (and I'm sure as the Ex, somewhat awkward for you!) into one with such positive and uplifting memories. Your DS/DDIL quilt is beautiful and knowing all the work you have put into it, will make it even more special to them.

    Honchey ... you must be St.Grandma with all the special things you do for your Grands! Looks like you figured our DH's "need" to check the NC house more often! BTW .... you had me chuckling and wondering just what you two 'lovebugs" are up to all day!!!!!!!!

    Anael ... your pic of the 3 SewGrands is SewGrand!




    Guess I should have broken this post into several posts, to up the numbers, and bring us in closer to the 6 grand marker!

    Have been missing all of you and our chatter. It's been a busy few weeks .... and the humidity has been absolutely horrible. No end in site, at least til after the EX is over with!

    Should be around here tmro/Friday ... wonder if I can get some time with my machine?

    QuiltE - here is a photo of my new sewing machine. It is a straight stitch only Brother 1500s that I picked up on Craigs List for $400.00. It is only a few years old. It is a mechanical machine, I love it and leave it set up for quilting. I am using my Baby Lock, that I had been using for quilting as my main piecing machine, and am putting the lightweight Brother in the motorhome for when we travel. I also have a Singer 503, that I bought in 1962. It is the only sewing machine I owned until I bought the little Brother four years ago when I started quilting again. Gads, since then I have bought the Baby Lock and this new Brother!
