New Reading Material

Well - after trying to decide on which classes to take at Artfest 2008, I came across this book by Laurie Mika and had to have it!! I have been wanting to take one of her classes and this will give me an idea of what it will be like... if I'm lucky enough to get in! I am trying to finish up some 'heart quilties' I've been creating for a swap. I'll try to post pics this weekend before I ship them off! I'm also trying to finish up my little houses for Angela Cartwright's In This House Swap! I think I'll need more than the weekend to get it all done!

Canning Time?

I haven't really been into home canning because I've never really had a garden! But this year we have a wonderful garden. Since I work for the Extension Service I have access to lots of publications on canning, freezing fruits and vegetables, and a multitude of other topics. You can contact your local Extension service (nearly each county in the U.S. has an office) for information for your state or check out this publication from Montana... Making Jams and Jellies At Home or check out the Ball Home Canning website for lots of info!

August already?

It's time for the Annual Sweet Pea Festival! If you happen to be in Bozeman, Montana this weekend (or maybe in Yellowstone Park area) the Sweet Pea is great fun with lots of music, food and art! Check it out!
