Hot Pepper Wall Hanging

This is the hot pepper Wall Hanging that Bev Karaiskos had a work shop on this pattern. I had to wet the material with water  and wad it up in a ball and put rubber bands around it and let it dry.  It took over a week to dry.  The material was all wrinkled. Then I layed it out to cut out the peppers. There are thirty and very wrinkled. I gave it to my son Clark because he loves to make salsa. I hand quilted it.

Garden Produce

I've been busy with all the garden produce. I have froze 40 cups of asparagus soup,52 cups of sliced carrots,
28 Cups of Broccoli & Carrots, 40 snack bags of sliced onions, and so far have canned 20 pints of green beans and 25 pints of spiced red beets. Been enjoying cherry tomatoes each day but the real ox heart tomato is going to be ripe this week end. It is the first tomato that was on the plants, I've been keeping and eye on it as it is yellow looking turning orange and will soon be ready for that hamburger sandwich. We have over 50 tomato plants so hope to have a lot to can. Our corn was damaged in the rain storm blew it down clear flat.. My husband tied some of it up to stakes hope it will be okay. We have enjoyed round zucchini squash and yellow crook neck squash. Have a lot of red kidney beans that will soon be ready.

HIGH Line in New York City

A former elevated Rail Road line that runs up the West side. Now a walking trail

This is what it looked like.

Times Square NYC

Times Square is really busy. They close Broadway for traffic where would the people walk if it was open for cars?
