One of my favorite sayings is "a jack of all trades and a master of none." I like it because it defines me. I do a little of this and a bit of that. I am far from being a master in any area. I just like to dabble. Since it has been raining for 3 days, I figured now would be the time to be overview of my dabbling.
It is too nice to be quilting, but along those lines my father-in-law is a great woodworker and a wonderful man. He made me this perfect quilt display. I am so happy, because I am able to display one of my very first quilts, that otherwise would still be sitting in a closet. Thank you Gene.
I pulled out the fruit press and we crushed some grapes to sweeten the buffalo berry wine. It has taken a while to figure out how to get the most out of this press. Currently, I am racking a Chokecherry/Saskatoon combination, two Buffalo Berry batches, and my favorite Red Letter Raspberry. All I have left in the freezer to make into wine is Oregon Grape. I will start that this weekend, because rhubarb is on the way. I must say I really enjoy making wine. I doubt it would win any awards, but I find it palatable.
I wish I could say gardening was going great. I am afraid that isn't quite the case. I planted my pumpkin seedlings in the outside garden. It hailed the next day and took them out. I planted the tomato and jalapeno seedlings in the greenhouse, it is now flooded. We have had over 6 1/2 inches of rain in the last 3 days. I'm thinking I may have to replant for the 3rd time. With such a relaxing hobby I don't know how I will keep occupied this summer.
The weatherman predicts sunny days ahead. I guess I will wrap up in a quilt, drink some wine, and go through my seeds to see if I have any seeds left to replant. I hope everyone else is staying safe and keeping busy.
