Not Sewing - Just a Whole Lot of Cooking

It's been a slow slow sewing season around here.  It's been eerie taking a long leave from sewing ... between keeping up with the shops and having the kids around during the summer months, sewing is on the very very (almost) very bottom of the list.  However, there has been some yummy cooking around here - take a peak :) ... I miss summer cooking already!

We live in California and when it's salmon season, you get whole salmon EVERYWHERE.  Here's a beauty we picked up.  It was a pretty good sized salmon that I stuffed with lemons, onions, cilantro, green onions then seasoned with salt/pepper.  Popped it in the oven for about half an hour.  And YUM.  Perfection :).  Maybe next year I'll try it on the grill too.

 We even brought back the lettuce wrap - haven't had these in ages.  It's a great way to use up random things in the fridge. Here's this one with a little bit of chicken, carrots, sprouts and ginger.  I think the hardest part was just making sure we didn't tear the lettuce.

Stir Fry :)!  One of the (many) favorites around our household.  It's a great way to sneak in a lot of veggies too for the kids ;)  Take a look at the veggies!

Now on to fall cooking :) - I'm dreaming of stews, slow cooker ANYTHING and some yummy fall drinks.  Oh yeah, and maybe even back to my sewing table for a new quilt or two before's to hoping!

Piecing - 2 Quilt Tops

No, these are will not be going into the same quilt top...
Just one of those days when you need 2 projects going at the same time...

A spring-inspired yellow quilt top I've started a little while back - piecing in the borders together.

...and a little star quilt I'm working on for someone special :)

Happy Sewing everyone!

Hello Spring!

Love this time of year (despite the mosquitos and allergies!).   There's a freshness in the air in the spring time - a little mix of morning dew, roses and lemon blossoms to be least in our yard :).  This year I started off with this little fun wreath project.  My first handmade wreath and I think I might be hooked...

I used a wire frame and wrapped burlap ribbon around there to hide the frame.  Then I loosely tied in more burlap ribbon with the cute little yellow ribbon I found in a $1 bin :).  

The peonies I found online - they are gorgeous aren't they?  I tied the peonies evenly around the wreath and topped it all off with a "W" metal sign I found at Michaels.  Looks great and perfect for a little pop of color.

Happy Spring everyone!
