What have I been up to lately?
I decided to do some canning.
Canned organic carrots on my pantry shelf is time saver when I need to throw a pot of soup together.
I cut up my carrots and hot packed them in pint jars.
I also like to use organic beans (middle) in my soups so I canned some of my dried organic pinto beans. I'll keep canning those until they are gone.
You can't beat homemade canned chicken broth (two jars on the side). We eat so much soup at this time of the year so it's nice to have these already on hand.
My chicken broth recipe:
I had a large box full of fabric. I didn't even know what I had until I pulled it out and organized it. I don't have a before picture but here are pictures after I organized them according to color.
Aren't these just wonderful fabrics!
Visit my son's blog to see what he's been up to lately.
I basted my heart quilt together thinking that I would start hand quilting. After quilting one square, a sore back and neck, I contacted a Long-arm quilter in North Carolina to get a quote to have it quilted. I'm still trying to decide what to do. Bethany at Bethany Quilts does such beautiful work, I know she would do a great job on my quilt.
Go to her blog and see for yourself how talented she is.
We are getting snow today!
Oh how cozy. I think I'll make a big pot of Tortellini Soup tonight.
Here's my Tortellini Soup Recipe:
Happy New Year my friends!
