Scarlet Runner Beans in flower.

It’s a busy time of year for outdoor things.  The patio garden is starting to produce.  I need to process and can some vegetables and fruits.  My freezer is still bursting from fruit from last year.  Last night I discovered a gallon of raspberries I didn’t know I had.

I was also going through old cookbooks to cull them, and found a recipe for Raspberry Vinegar, which I just happen to need as a salad dressing base for another recipe.  So I quickly thawed a gallon of raspberries, poured two cups of vinegar over them, and now am letting them set the required four days before straining, adding a cup of sugar per cup of vinegar liquid, and processing. 🙂

Also in the deep freeze are about 4 gallons each of crabapples and rhubarb, and a gallon of saskatoons (blueberry like berries, but not as sweet).  I am poised to embark on jam making.

However, none of that is in my studio!  In my studio I am trying to re-orient myself and catch up loose ends.

  • I want to sort through my projects and see where I’m at.  Line up an order to hook in,
  • I want to hook some poppy wall hangings,
  • I forgot to label Goldfish.  So that needs to be attended to,
  • I still need to work on my portfolio, which is sadly out of date,
  • I also need to add some work to my Etsy shop,
  • and I need to update my “For Sale” page here on my blog site.

I hope everyone has a great day!
