What am I doing?
I have not been sewing much. But I have been busy. I am back to work. That is one thing. And then Mum came to visit. Mum came bearing gifts. Lots of fun vintage sheets which I have not yet taken pics of and a whole box of fabulous vintage fabric. Real vintage fabric from the 40s and 50s. Squeal! She also brought tomatoes, peppers and grapes. And her dehydrator. We got chopping on Sunday. Mostly Husband got chopping. Mum took care of the grapes from her vines and they are now raisins. I haven't bought raisins for years. Thanks Mum!
Anyway. Much chopping and stirring and simmering later, we had 53 pints of salsa and one part jar. It took us all day but now our children and their significant others will be happy as cupcakes. They like our salsa. Daughter's special someone says that I have ruined him for store bought salsa. What a sweetie.
My sewing machine is now equipped with a snazzy new automatic thread cutter. Apparently, I am the first one to have worn out a thread cutter in all the Janome Horizon 7700s that my local Janome shop has sold. What does that say?
Sewing this weekend. For sure.
