Progress on Short Story....

We are now getting Bountiful Baskets almost every week and have loads of fruit and veges to eat. I had a ton of broccoli and cauliflower and so I found a recipe online and made soup. Everyone liked it and we used up lots of veges!
I also had collected a bunch of bananas in the freezer for banana bread...so I made three loafs using my great grandma Myrt's recipe. It turned out really well too. I brought some in to work today and am bringing a loaf to June's for sewing day with her and BJ and Ros tomorrow. I am quite excited for that and so tonight I got a bunch of my strips cut for Bonnie Hunter's Pineapple Blossom and also spent a long time cutting and pinning for Short Story!

I hope to make lots of progress on this at June's and if time to work on some Pineapple Blossom blocks too! I also continued working on organizing my fabric....I am going through my drawers that are organized by color and if the chunk of fabric is big enough I am folding it and putting it on the shelf and if it isn't I cut it into strips. I really like being able to see my fabric and envision a day when I have two and a half inch strips (the size I seem to use the most of) sorted by color or somewhat sorted by color to make it easier to use! Sometimes I just like to sit here and see that I do actually have a little stash!

How fabulous that you are growing vegetables. Your soup looks very yummy. I only planted tomatoes and herbs this year. Looking forward to seeing your new Bonnie Hunter quilt.

Oh boy....yummy looking soup and even YUMMIER looking banana bread!!!! Mind sharing your recipe? I have two recipes, one better than the other because of how the "crust" remains kinda tacky and moist. Your pic looks like that!

OOOOOOooooooo....Compaiion Angle ruler! DUH! Why didn't I see that before? Oh gosh---what a simple process for a not-so-simple-looking block! Thanks for including the ruler in the pic! ;0)
