Today I canned my first strawberries. It was a wonderful success sort of. I was hoping to make a thick strawberry spread but ended up with a syrup. The girls and I did come up with a list of things that it would go well with like homemade ice cream, angel food cake, & homemade cheese cake. The wonderful part for me and what makes it such a huge success is that the jars sealed and the syrup has a great flavor. Luckily too I am pretty sure what I did wrong and it will be easy to fix. The good thing is it did make quite a bit. I guess I should write down what I did just in case it is a big hit. I am really going to have fun this summer playing with different recipes and foods. I can not wait!!!!

The Stash Well at least Most of it

The bags and boxes are yarn. I have other areas that are just to hard to get pictures of. The good news is I have not added anything new to the stash since my last post!! Yeah for me.

Stash Busting

Okay I have to admit that my storage area for both yarn and fabric is full. As of this very moment I am on a yarn and fabric diet. I will not be buying either until I put a significant dent in my stash areas. (Yes I have several.) I tried to convince myself that I was just insulating my house really really well but Cleopatra I am not and I can not longer be the Queen of Denial.
I have of course already committed to some goodies in some buys and I will follow through with prior commitments but no new stuff!!! Now I just have to figure out if vintage fabric counts. :-)
