I harvested most of the carrots and beets a few days later. Last year the pickled beets turned out great, carrots not so much. With so much (ha) vast knowledge of pickling behind me, I'm going to do the beets again. I've also got a huge bag of cherries pitted and in the freezer waiting to become jam. I think I will spend the coming weekend in the kitchen!
On Saturday we had some friends over for a BBQ and I saw this amazing recipe on Pinterest that I really wanted to make. But like all things Pinterest, you have a 50/50 shot of it working out. Deep fried cream cheese stuffed cherries was in the fail category. It was quiet sad.
But then you have cute cats who roll around on the deck and
make you smile and you forget about failing at Pinterest.
I started a sewing kick. I'm so excited to start my quilt with Christine, she's sending me the rest of the fabric in the mail this week and then we can start piecing our 2(?) year in the making transcontinental masterpiece. (More on that later) but basically it inspired me to get lots of little projects out of the way so I can focus on that when the time comes. That and the awesome fabric I bought on line that should be arrivng any day...I gots some busy fall sewing days ahead! While I wait, I made some hot/cold bags for the little. I also want to make Anthony a big warm bag as he likes to cuddle up with them under a blanket with a book in the winter (sometimes I question if we aren't related, seriously).
I also, brace yourself, made some Christmas presents. Little pocket warmers!
They also double for some bean bag action, if you're into that kind of thing.
AND, I made another baby quilt, pretty similar to the last elephant
one but this one involved working around a very cute and cuddly kitty.
