Strawberry Pickin' Time!!

Well it's that time of year again! I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but we belong to a CSA farm here in Wisconsin. That being Community Supported Agriculture. From May to October we go to the farm that we are a member of every other week and pick up a box of fresh picked organic veggies!

It's strawberry season! Our farm lets us go pick strawberries! It was the perfect weather for it this year!
We picked about 2 buckets full! We love strawberry jam! And strawberry shortcake..... and strawberry pie... and strawberries and ice cream... you get the picture!

I found a new kind of pectin, Ball Instant Pectin..The recipe they use was so easy. 1 2/3 cups of mashed fruit, 2/3 cups sugar and 2 Tbsp pectin per pint of jam you want to make. So we got to mashing!

It's a no cook recipe and was so easy to make! In about an hour we had 6 jars of jam for the freezer! And boy is it delicious!

Next week I'm going to make peach jam! our second favorite.

Quilled Baby Cards

Well a few months ago I got hooked on quilling! I don't know where I saw it but it just intrigues me to make things out of little pieces of paper.

I've been watching lots of quilling blogs and found one with a challenge. So even though I'm really new at this, I thought I'd enter just for fun. Especially since the challenge is for baby cards and I've done 2 in the last few weeks for friends!

This was for a friend who had a baby girl. My favorite is the little yellow duckie!

And as you can see, this was for a friend who had a boy!My teen says the baby head and arm in the carriage look like blobs, not a baby!

Just remember, these are some of the first few cards I've made so I still have a lot to learn!

Like get double sided tape, and don't use glue dots because they leave dents!

I am going to post these at the Take a Quill Pill Blog challenge.

Time for Some New Products!

      So my website at KZ Embroidery slowed down considerably in April. I've been working with my hosting provider since then to work it out, switching servers, upgrading to their new and exciting 4G, all to no avail!
I finally switched hosting companies. But now the site is back up and much faster! So I've gotten to list some new products!

Chalkboard Labels!

These labels are great for organizing! Sets of 6 for only $4.95 plus free shipping! Choose your shape! Butterfly, flower, cute frames. These labels are removable and reusable. Write on them with plain chalk or a chalk marker. They are approximately 3 by 2 1/2 inches, although the scalloped frame labels are 3 by 3 inches. Perfect size for your jars, canisters, organizer bins, you name it. We also have 2 other sizes!
