A couple of posts ago I ask for suggestions on quilting the watermelon quilt, well suggestions I got, I finally managed to get out to my room to finish the watermelon quilt... I think it turned out really cute!I ended up using a simple loop on the melon part, and a nice rippleish on the rind, you can see the stitching in the light green area the best! Oh and I added the "seeds" because that was what made the watermelon!The rest of my weekend was all about pickling peppers! This was my first time ever making a pickled peppers, I hope they turn out OK, these are banana peppers and when they are done they should be like the pepperchini peppers you get at subway.Washed, seeded and ready to boil, I had just under a pound.. these came out of my garden, I have a couple dozen more still on the plant so will have to do this all over again in a few weeks!Boiled, and in the brine, the recipe was easy.... cider vinegar, water, sugar, garlic cloves, celery seed, mustard seed and salt. boil, simmer mix lid, water bath! Here are my little half pints in the water bath, I think I need to get a canning rack, the poor things just about rattled themselves silly! I did end up with 3 half pint jars of pickled peppers from 1 pound of peppers.OK last picture of the day, my baby, scoochy.... all snuggled in and ready for a nap in Torrie's freshly washed pretty fabric! Is he not pretty!
Well that was my weekend, I got a lot done, and had a wonderful visit with an old friend from high school plus a great visit with my friend Wendi!
I wish all of my weekends could go this well and productive!
Till next time, thanks for stopping in.
