I wanted to share with you some pictures I took over the Spring and Summer.
I spent some time last night working on a project that I had started earlier but haven’t shown you yet. It’s a pattern that came out of Just Cross Stitch magazine, the March/April 2015 issue.
The pattern is named Teacup Herbs by Sharon Pope. There are four in the series. March/April’s issue had two, Dill and Thyme.
This past Saturday I took a seed starting class. I took one last year even though I had some earlier experience in seed starting. No matter what I think I know, I can always learn something new. Taking gardening classes is a lot like sewing. The instructors have different knowledge levels and experiences. I want to learn from them. I’m always seeking to learn more.
Oops, last week totally got away from me. I spent it doing ‘Mom’ things and dealing with a cold. Didn’t get to do anything sewing or diy related. However, I thought you’d like to see what my errand day with my sweet pie was like.
The Virtual Cookie Exchange is a sweet hop hosted annually by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt. I’m so excited to be a part of this fun hop for a 2nd time. Thanks so much for hosting Carol.
You can see my post from last year here.
I mentioned last year I have 3 cookies I like to make each Christmas season. Last year I shared with you Gingerbread Men. This year I’m sharing Chocolate Chip Cookies, Santa’s favorite. It’s a recipe that I altered over 20 years ago from a cookbook my sister-in-law had. I don’t remember the name of the cookbook.
Organized by Marian of Seams To Be Sew and Amy of Sew Incredibly Crazy, this hop was open internationally so we have bloggers/designers from Washington to Africa. Twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays) a 4-5 designers will share their row and will have it available for free as a download on their blog. There will also be give-a-ways as well.
