We have quite a nice lemon harvest this year. There were near freezing temperatures forecast recently, so I went ahead and brought most of the lemons inside. There has been juicing, and slicing and freezing happening here, and I also shared some with my neighbors.
My next door neighbor Michelle brought us this lemon meringue pie made with some of those lemons last night! Talk about a quick return on my generosity. And boy, oh, boy, is it good!!
I got a new Go! die the other day - a hexagon. There are three sizes, and I had an idea. I know, dangerous, huh? I cut different fabrics just a little over half-size of the largest hexagon. This effectively makes it a half hexagon and therefore much easier to sew together. No "Y" seams. It will take some planning to get the rows to work out right and you know I'm not the greatest at planning ahead, but we'll see.
The Christmas strings are coming along nicely. Soon and very soon there will be a Christmas Coins quilt here!
Chloe is NOT happy. Dinah has made herself perfectly at home and feels absolutely no shame about eating from Chloe's bowl. Oh, the woes of having to be the grownup. I feel Chloe's pain. Isn't that the most pathetic face you've seen lately?
I do hope you're having lots of fun and not having to do too many grown up things that are unpleasant to you.
Hugs and kisses,
