My Last ornament of the 2009 Christmas Challenge
I was able to do all 12!! This was from the 2009 JCS Christmas Magazine
I stitched it for the Gentle Pursuits EGA luncheon and ornament exchange.
It went to Catherine - hope it makes her smile this holiday season!

I was so excited to come home last night to find my box from Dawn from the Christmas Potholder SWAP organized by Kathy Ann on For the Love of Crochet Along blog. She included a potholder and dishcloth, some cute yarn, a vintage crochet booklet a German cookie recipe and a package of coffee and a chocolate treat - how great is that!!! She should be receiving my box today - I hope she loves what I sent her and I'll post it when I know she receives it.

This is my latest ornament for the 2009 Christmas Challenge - it's a freebie card from Prairie Schooler - it's such a cute little tree, I just had to stitch it. I incorporated the candle into the initial I stitched on the back.

I have been stitching my fingers off but my little jar isn't filling up as much as it should - so much red and green (must mean Christmas is around the corner) I'll just have to keep on stitching!! This month the added threads are lovely Heathway crewel yarns from my project below.

What to do with all those tomatoes - roast them - I made two pans of roasted tomatoes, some garlic and banana peppers. Slice the tomatoes, sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs de Provence then drizzle with a little olive oil. Bake in a low, slow oven (225 degrees) for 4 hours. After they are finished, they taste like candy. I put them in a zip lock bag and in the freezer for later. This is what they look like BEFORE

We picked peaches a week or so ago and I was looking for a recipe to use up some of the peaches. I found a yummy recipe from Cooking Done Light Blog and loved it. The recipe has no oil and uses sour cream and applesauce instead - they turned out great.
This is my first month in participating in the Totally Useless SAL from YoYo's Dragon Ny Needle Blog. It doesn't look like much but inside are the threads from two ornaments I have been working on and will be posted soon and some beads from bracelets I have been working on.

Garden progress - tomatoes getting bigger, zucchini doing great - tomato and pepper plant in topsy turvy containers growing too. A little hummingbird visiting the feeder and my basket of bounty - peppers, string beans, lavender and even flowers from the garden
