It’s summer again which means, for me, lots of canning and preserving, along with other projects such as crafting, sewing, painting, gardening…you name it, I may or may not have tried it. There’s something about summer that makes me want to take on all of these creative tasks. Maybe it’s the essence of freedom that summer always seems to bring with it…the long days where the sun beams down, making you forget time or its importance because the days seem to last longer.
Anyway, around these neck of the woods, a lot of activity has been going on…
Homemade placemats…make your own with a sharpie!
Depression Era Bread…this recipe calls for 30 min in the oven. Mine took longer so just use your best judgement.
Adding cute material to short shorts. Yes, I sewed these on, and yes, it was difficult to keep the stitches straight. But I like the result.
Antique trunk my mother-in-law found that I turned into a “wedding corner” at our house. My dried bouquet is in the middle and on each side are the roses that we exchanged during the ceremony.
Local grown blueberries. I froze them…still deciding whether or not to preserve them. Any suggestions?
Budding Better Boys in my garden. There’s something so fulfilling about growing your own food and going to your garden to pick your veggies for supper at night.
