Happy Tuesday! I started quilting Raining Cats and Dogs. And in the process, I found PUCKERS in my batting. Puckers! 😦 I found 2 very bad spots. The first pucker I found was in the middle lower part and it was REAL bad. I couldn’t leave it in. I figured I could still quilt the top half and then unbaste the lower half and smooth the pucker. But then I found a small pucker at the very top of the quilt. I was so frustrated last night and then CP3 got injured and my Clippers lost. It was a bad night. 😦 So very sad. I’d already quilted the top border and other parts but I hadn’t yet quilted all 4 borders so I picked out the basting for the top row of the quilt and then smoothed out the pucker and pinned. I’ll machine quilt all the straight lines with my walking foot. Then I”ll undo the 2nd row, smooth out the pucker that starts in the middle lower part of the 2nd row, pin and quilt. I believe I didn’t smooth out the batting very good when I loaded everything onto the frame to baste this. I guess I was rushing to get it done. In the meantime, here’s the status of my garden:
Strawberries are doing well. I thought I took a better picture but I didn’t. I was able to harvest 1 little sweet strawberry from above. I shared it with the hubby.
I’ll probably be able to harvest another one today. 🙂 It wasn’t very hot yesterday but I’m finding I have to water every day.
The Milk Thistle is growing well. They look pretty weird. Can you see the middle leaves. They are kind of pokey and rough looking.
The basil is not doing well. I guess the 2 days in the 90’s a week or so ago really killed off the little seedlings except the one growing above. I’m going to plant more seedlings when I get a chance.
Our tomatoes are looking good. It gets dry fast so I have to keep watching and watering it every day to make sure its getting enough water. I can’t wait to have my own garden grown tomatoes again. I forgot to take pictures of the potatoes but it’s overrun. I need to split them up. I hope to get to that sometime in the next week.
In the meantime, I’ll be quilting and unbasting. 🙂
