The day is done and so am I

Okay, so these are the two I canned on our anniversary, but I did can two more jars of tomato juice today.  I started this mess this morn, and during it stopped and hung out a  load of clothes.  It was such a beautiful day I just couldn't resist doing a load.
While I had a minute I was outside with my camera and got this of the Bubbie.  It has been rotated 180ยบ...he was squirming around on his back so much I could not get a decent shot.
Another of the FatBoy, or as we should call him No So Slim...he is a cat with character.  Loves messing with us...but also is easy to mess with.  Just any little thing will scare him and make him jump two foot straight in the air.
And believe it or not, I finally did something I have been planning to do for a long time.  I got a flannel backed table cloth and got it hung.  It makes an excellent design wall for quilts.  I had heard about it forever, then saw Judy's post....and after a question or two which she answered right away, I bought the table cloth and have had it forever.

For some reason I wanted it up today.  So at the end of this day I got it ready.  Since it is the biggest I could fine--84 inches long and 60 inches wide...I folded it, and sewed across one end a couple times and put ties on it...then Roger put up those sticky things that can be removed easily.

I was just dying to show the backing that I am making for the small crumb quilt made with leftover blocks.  I still have quite a bit of sewing to do as I am piecing this back.  But thought this would give you an idea of what how it is looking.
