People ask where my ideas come from. That's a hard question to answer, because they come from so many sources.
Many of my ideas have to be filtered through the reality of what I can do with fabric. Some things lend themselves better to painting than to little pieces of fabric sewn together in some way.
Today I'm sharing an intriguing picture I found that I don't think will become a quilt, but I can appreciate it's beauty. Maybe someday I'll use it in some way.
As usual my inspiration comes from a nature walk...this ribbons of dried weeds, just appealed to me.
No, I'm not always quilting, though many think that.
In the past I've made this vegie relish many times...but it's hard to find a bunch of green tomatoes when you don't have a garden. So it's been several years, and I've tried all of the brands in the grocery and not found one near as good. So I decided it was time to jump into this major (or it seemed major) project.
I found the green tomatoes at the Farmers' Market. It also contains: onions, green and red bell peppers and cabbage. My wonderful husband decided to help and boy was he a great help!. Here you see him grinding with my Mom's old grinder.
It was a two day project but I'm so pleased to see those lovely jars of yummy relish lined up on the counter.
