I have not had much time to spend on sewing this week. There have been doctor appointments and other things that took me away from my sewing machine! But I did manage to finish another journal cover. This one fits a full-size notebook. I used cat fabrics and I love it!I am just working on finishing the binding to another charity quilt. I will photograph and post about it as soon as I am done.

Fruits From the Garden and Sewing Room
We have had a very cool, wet summer and now we are having a nice mild, totally dry September. But that's okay. My tomato plants are finally starting to produce some ripe tomatoes. I decided to experiment a bit this year. I didn't have much room for vegetables, so I only planted a few tomato plants. They are heirloom tomatoes. I have no idea what that means, but they are kind of interesting. One plant bears a dark burgundy fruit with a darker (greenish) top. Another one has pretty yellow lines on a bright orange fruit. The third one is a little red tomato that has an excellent tomato flavour. I love this one in salads. And finally, the fourth plant bears little clusters of yellow tomatoes. These are like candy! I just go out into my backyard and pop them into my mouth! Delicious!
