There’s been a wholelotta sewing happen’ around here. Mostly little presents and some epic quilting preparations . I made these pocket warmers for little gifts, and for us too (ok for me; I can never been too warm in winter ’round here)
Last weekend we went to Globalfest. Twice.
It was fantastic. I love fireworks. The shows were amazing and worth the crowds of people and $9dollar bag of mini doughnuts. Nothing more to say. Can’t wait again for next year…maybe we’ll go three times:)
I made peach jam. It looks better than it is. I panicked at a crucial moment and now it’s a very thick, very sweet jam. That’s okay, it was my first time and many lessons learned. I don’t think I can use it as presents but Gord and Anthony seem to like it…after 12 jars though….
I got some more carrots from the garden! There are a few strays still lingering that might grow big enough (and some beets and radishes and lettuce) if the weather stays nice a bit longer. The plans for next years garden are already floating around in my head…
When I was home in May I went through so many old photos from my childhood and really enjoyed the ones of my whole family together. I realized we didn’t have that many so I made another new tradition that every summer we will take a family photo. This is 2012’s… we may need a bigger porch for next year! (don’t mind the half dead pansies, they’ve been there since May).
That’s it that’s all. Anthony goes back to school this week, we meet with our adoption worker on Friday, and I may, cough cough, need to take a sick day this week to
sew rest up.
