Quilt Giveaway!

No, not by me. Did that get your attention, though?!

Elizabeth at Pigtails & Snails is giving an absolutely gorgeous quilt away - go look for yourself. And I'm going to win it! Posting this on my blog gives me an extra 5 entries and the little banner over in my sidebar adds another 5. I'm not proud! Can I start another blog just to post there and get 10 more entries?!?

Now I'm just hoping she'll write up a pattern so we can make ourselves one too!

Just a few things

On my mind today...

I am going to be nice to telemarketers. They have such a crap job and I can't imagine that my shortness with them makes their job or day any easier. Their phone calls irritate me but they're just trying to feed their families, right?


We are almost through our second batch of apple butter. And the 19 pounds of strawberries that we turned into jam is gone. Long gone. We are some toast and jam junkies in this house.

I'll be sad when our garden is empty. It's so much fun to take the kids out every day to see what is ready to be picked.

I finally got my sewing groove back. It feels good.

Thank goodness Monday is a holiday - I am so thankful to have a long weekend to look forward to.
I had an abundance of red peppers so I diced/froze some of them and then roasted/canned the rest. YUM.

What's on your mind this lovely Friday afternoon?
