From a 1930 diary from Upper Frederick Township, Montgomery Co.:
September 2, Tuesday: Put quilt in a frame.
September 5, Friday: Finished quilt.
We will assume that the writer of this diary knotted rather than quilted the quilt, since the diary states that during this time she also canned three baskets of peaches.

Here I am, working on another project - a baby quilt - due for someone by mid-September. One of my favorite past times, is hand quilting... which I haven't done in a long time. I'll admit, I felt a bit rusty at it, for a few moments. Now...all is well. :)
And, I'm having such a relaxing time...doing this!! I'll often sit down - at the end of the day - while the kiddos' are already tucked into bed for the night and sew while Scott is studying or catching up on Scout stuff. :)
I'm not making any promises, because I do have a lot of things to share... but... If you don't hear from me in awhile... it's because, I'm quilting...among...a few other things, this week!
Such as, enjoying some fresh peaches - that need to be eaten as fast possible. The tomatoes here are only a smidge of a fraction of the tomatoes I have sitting here around the house... but, I'll be canning Salsa, canning some Red Beets (see our friend, hiding in the leaves? Caleb named him "Manny".) and doing up some more Crabapple Jam. I put up one batch of crab apple jam...last week! I probably could do two more... we'll see if I have enough jars on hand... for all of this.
Oh and we can't forget - hanging the laundry and a couple of playdates, all before the start of school on the 31st!!
Have a lovely week!!
