I had a great time doing the flying geese. So many geese. I used the no waste method, but that means there are a lot of little steps. Cutting all the squares, marking all the diagonals, pinning, sewing, cutting, pressing, pinning, sewing, cutting, and pressing again. However having a lot of little steps it was easier to run in and do a little between wrangling the kiddos. I probably would have gone a little nutty if I tried to sit down and do all the steps in, say, two large chunks.
One large border left. I'm going to see how a circle border will look. I do have all those circles left.
I also stated working on the backing using the left over geese, geese parts, and other border parts.
I grew up with my mother, grandmother, neighbors, all canning our own food. Vegetables, fish, stew meat. I myself have done a fair amount of canning trying new recipes different types of pickles but I have never used the reusable lids and rings by Tattler.
I have made some pasta sauce with large cherry tomatoes which I first roasted in the oven and then puréed and cooked down for a little bit on the stove. So I'll see how this goes. I'll follow the instructions step-by-step to ensure that all goes smoothly.
