These are plums from my father in law's plum tree. With my Mom's help, I made big jars of tasty, sweet plum preserves. Its great on toast and as a marinade over pork tenderloin...yum!
With only 2 zucchini plants, we still ended up with over 20 HUGE zucchini....eating them sauteed, grilled, and raw in salads got pretty old, so I made double batches of zucchini muffins and froze them to snack on this winter.

I had an unbelievable weekend taking a beeswax collage class from artist, Claudine Hellmuth. That's me with friends Karen & Catherine, new friend, Danene, Karen's dog Rosie, and Claudine.
One of the canvases I made & actually completed...I have 5-6 others that are at least halfway done. Already gave this away as a birthday gift to someone & she loved it!

I am working on 2 quilting projects at once right now. The square above is for a lap-sized quilt I'm making from the fabric leftovers of Annie's Turning Twenty Quilt that I made for my neice last April....hate adding MORE scraps to my scrap bin!
the colors are a bit on the funky side in this pic....but the block above is from a top-secret quilt I've been working on for awhile. It is the biggest one I've done so far....queen! I am just finishing the last couple of blocks (56 of them), then ready to make backing, etc. I'll post more when its finished and appily in the hands of it's recipient!

We had 2 foster puppy siblings over the weekend....the big brother is in the process of being adopted. So, we have the sweet little girl above.....she arrived with the name Brie (yep, spelled like the cheese) but I'm just not feeling it. I'm thinking she's a Pippi....her ears stick out like Pippi Longstocking :-)
on the move....its tough to get puppy pics!
