(to be read with a ridiculous weepy voice)
Oh, and a speech? My goodness, I'd like to thank my mom for complimenting my scissor skills when I was five, and my great aunt Clotilde, she was the queen of repurposing with a little glue and glitter! And my wonderful husband Paul for not leaving me when he comes home and the table is buried under another mess that is NOT dinner, and my children and family and oh, all the wonderful crafty and super mommy people I've met here, and of course God for giving me my crafty ideas, and Oh just thank you, everyone! you know who you are...

Okay, that was fun. What have I really been up to? Lots of berry picking. But you may have guessed that. I'm actually off today for more. And a jam-session tomorrow.
Crocheting some bags, I actually went for colour here, imagine that. It's not done yet, ignore the tiny straps.

And trying my damnedest to eat more locally. This was our Saturday lunch. Our Market haul of Local bread cukes and tomatoes made into pesto and Parmesan bread and cukes with kosher salt. yum!

The clouds wouldn't stop bumping Sunday night! I thought of you and laughed every time I heard thunder.

Thanks so much for nominating my blog. It still always surprises me that people other than my family read it. I feel fortunate to have stumbled into this nice community of crafty, baking peeps.
