Believe it or not, but today, I did one more batch of pumpkin jam. Yes, it has been that popular around here. DD and her hubby have been the recipients of three big bottles of it so far. Then some friends and other relatives have also received some, so now after today's batch, I believe I will have enough to do us for the winter.
DH has been doing more renovations in the kitchen area. When we were in Town earlier in the week, I picked up more flooring samples and also picked up samples of counter tops. I already know that my cupboards are going to be white and we have picked the colour we are putting on the walls which is called "fire weed" - a red colour which has kind of burgandy tones. I'm told that dark colours are in right now so I'm getting out of my comfort zone and going with it. I love it when a plan comes together.
When I sat down to watch the last episode of ER that Abby was going to be in, I picked up my swedish weaving and got about 3 inches done on it. I find it hard to just watch TV without picked up some handwork or a puzzle book. My swedish weaving project is on a piece of forest green monk's cloth and the pattern is done in a variegated yarn. I'm not real happy with the yarn - I find it to not be sharp enough in colour. However, I have to get it done as I already have purchased the materials for my next project. It is a beige coloured monk's cloth with a beautiful variegated yarn.
I should get back to my quilts as well - oh dear! Never enough time to do what I want to do. Some retired people claim they are bored -- not me.
Enough rambling for tonight. Must go get my zzz's.
