Progress on Baby Boy Quilt

We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the newest member to the family - our first grandchild. We now know that its a baby boy and the quilt has been started. Daughter selected a 9 patch design and together we selected fabrics. I'm happy to say that daughter is showing some interest for the first time in putting a quilt together. It is coming together and hope to have it all hand quilted well before baby's arrival in December. More photos to follow as this project progresses.

An Abundant Harvest

What a wonderful gardening year we are having in Missouri. Corn and green beans are in the freezer. We are now enjoying potatoes, melons, peppers, cukes,, and tomatoes.
We have been on the search for the ultimate spaghetti sauce recipe, even having cooking contests at our house. I must admit DH has out done me so far. I am a blessed woman. He not only puts out the biggest garden in the area but he also cans it also. Of course I help when I'm able, meaning not trail riding, shopping, etc. It is all alot of work but so worth it when we have garden produce to enjoy all winter long.
If you have a great (and easy) spaghetti sauce recipe to share I would love to give it a try!
