What I've been doing this last week

We have been enjoying some much needed rain....they are calling it the miracle March. Getting all of our rain in one month!
While it rains I have been sewing and canning.
I canned 8 jars of pepper jelly...I found organic peppers at Vons...so I got busy. Unfortunately, some were very very juicy...and I had to recall four...which after recooking...brings it down from 4 to 2 1/2...sad....
But you know me if you read my blog...I love to can.
Besides canning....
I have been sewing....
My daughter has a friend in Austin, Texas that she is going to see...they are going to have a little girl...so I created a quilt to match their theme....Fairy Tales! I just happened to have a quilt panel that was actually to make a soft book...and cut it to become a quilt.

These beautiful done panels are so bright and lovely...I have started using for the very first time a clear thread....by Superior Threads....
It is called Monopoly....a fabulous thread that is a dream to use. I use their Bottom Line in the bobbin and the Monopoly in the top and it is so perfect!I didn't want to take away from the pictures in the quilt with a regular thread (I usually use a silk thread)...
When it is done I will show you....but I am quite pleased with it.
In between storms we played with the HurriK9 toy we got Molly at Christmas....
She loves this toy...and becomes a border collie...she collects and herds the rings....and her focus and body posture are like a collie's....



Funny girl...
In any case, she is not very good at actually retrieving the rings, or balls or whatever...
Love her anyway....
"Wow, Dad, did you see that??"....
 Her favorite person is Hubby.....
And yes, she is allowed on the couches....I have a hard time resisting this face....
Know what other face is hard to resist??
 These faces....My eldest daughter (Auntie to the boys) or
this one....could you resist?? Me neither.....
Have a great rest of your week....
We are off to get Hubby's Cat scan to see if they killed the cancer....
