Well, I don't know what happened to my heart-felt resolution to post at least once a month! Oh well, let's catch up :) I've been:
1. Designing the 2012 Shop Hop Block for Stitcher's Garden. The theme this year is "Games People Play" - very bright & fun - WAIT 'till you see!!
2. Demo'ing at the Pueblo Quilt & Stitch Expo - back in April. No booth this year, but I had a GREAT time perusing the offerings. Got some quilting loot & reconnected with vendors & friends. Couldn't resist the BUTTONS of course - Jill has some of the best & her button enthusiasm is contagious - Jillions of Buttons
3. Creating spring samples!!
Here's Easter - this cake was truly superb. The recipe for "Scripture Cake" was from the aptly named Cook's Country magazine: "Lost Recipes - Kitchen-Tested Heirloom Recipes Too Good to Forget".
Among other things, the recipe included cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, coriander, raisins, figs, pistachios & almonds!! It was a heavy, old-fashioned cake with leftovers frozen to be savored in small pieces throughout the year. I renamed it "Resurrection Cake".
4. Enjoying NATURE - Spring is so full of joy & hope - no matter how bad Winter was, Spring always rejuvenates my spirit.
Tulips & Butterfly Girl - I think she's reading a Quilting Book!
Apple Blossoms (soon to be Apple Pie!)
We don't always get to enjoy a "real" Spring here in Colorado & true to form, temperatures zoomed into the 80's quickly. Oh well, among other things, Nature reminds us to enjoy every moment! Ooohh, I just saw a hummingbird .... gotta go!! Faith.
