i am sorry i’ve been absent from posting on monday and tuesday. i think the craziness finally caught up with me. i barely even turned on my computer. now, it’s time to play catch up. i think i have like 300 posts to go through on google reader. yikes!
anyway, just a couple updates. i made jam last night. from 8 – midnight to be exact. my mom’s friend picked peaches up in new york state and i was the lucky recipent! yay!
so, i made peach jam, blueberry peach jam and champagne ginger peach jam. and there are still more peaches … which may be reserved for a cobbler or something delicious like that.
even though it was midnight when i sealed my last jar all the jams turned out great.
and they look gorgeous! i was so inspired by the color of the peaches as i was peeling them. the pinks and oranges were beautiful.
what colors are inspiring you these days? leave a comment below!
and speaking of beauitufl colors, i got some more fabrics. yay! and thanks.
love these two pieces from kari in canada. i sorta cut it off in the photo but the one print has a little bird and the other looks like little eggs (to me at least.) these are scraps from an apron she made in a sewing class this winter.
and check out the amazing smorgasbord got from melissa at 100 billion stars. i honestly can’t believe all this amazing-ness. melissa i believe we were separated at fabric birth. i love them all.
did you see those pinks and maroons? beautiful together!
i told you. prettiness. and if you every need more prettiness or creative inspiration you must check out melissa’s blog. endless creativity.
love the aquas and pinks and greens. (my favorites!! shhh … don’t tell the others she sent me.)
these two fun pieces are from shawnna in pa. shawnna is a friend of a friend. i’m very jealous of her bengal cats. i joke with her that i will steal them if i ever meet them. (little does she know i’m not kidding.) love the little kitties in the fabric!
rachel from rachels cottage house sent me these sweet fabrics! so pink and beautiful.
and look at this little tag she included with her fabric! it has her name on it! tooo fudgin’ awesome.
and this last piece is from … well … me! i found it in the clearance bin at wal-mart. it was on sale and i loved it (looks very vintage.) it’s my first addition to the quilt.
alright folks, i’m spent. back again soon.
