It's that Time of the Year Again....

I found corn on sale for only 20 cents an ear so I bought some and I'm going to freeze it. Last year we figured out that if we could find corn for under 25 cents an ear it was cheaper than what we paid for a bushel. Anyway, corn is shucked and waiting on water to boil so I can blanch it. This year I'm going to freeze the corn instead of canning because I'll need my jars for pickles and I'm thinking of making spaghetti sauce too. We'll see how it goes. Last years tomato crop really sucked because of the drought we had so I didn't get much tomato sauce made and no spaghetti sauce. I have 14 tomato plants in the garden. I still have a few more things to plant. My fingers are crossed for this year!

WIP Wednesday--2 Projects

I'm working a little here and a little there on 2 projects. I have not finished the granny 'ghan I've been blogging about for a while now. I'm at the sewing together the squares stage. Here's just a quick peek at it:

I'm also working on a baby blanket. It needs a border and the ends woven in:

Both projects are at the stage I don't like but I  need to put my nose to the grind stone and get busy.

Have a great day....
