Strawberry time, Summertime and some jewels!

The weather here in Iowa has been beautiful all week - love the temperatures in the 70's and not a lot of humidity.   I would like to place an order with Mother Nature to just continue this for the next several months!  Oh, and if she could take the bugs somewhere else, that would be even better.  With this nice weather comes strawberry picking...
 And pie making...

Both of these are really easy - the strawberry chiffon has jello and cool whip, and the strawberry glaze will have cool whip on the top.  They both have disappeared already and yesterday I made strawberry shortcake.  And now there are more strawberries waiting to be picked, so it's time to come up with another recipe.

And look what I "finished".  It still needs to be quilted, but it is all pieced together!  This is a terrible picture, it's not nearly this bright, but you get the idea.

And I thought I would share some jewelry pictures.  There are some new things on my website, so take a look...



Now I'm off to pick some strawberries!

Have a great weekend!

  1. My strawberries are still green--I am so jealous!
    I'm also jealous of your sampler quilt. I should quit being jealous and make one.
    Love the jewelry!

  4. Beautiful jewels, as always! And oh do I miss those mid-west strawberries! Homegrown are always so much better than what we get in the grocery store! And I want PIE!

    Your strawberry dishes have me salivating on the other side of the world,
    Your quilt is beautiful. I have been admiring the pieces that you made for Lynette Anderson and now these ones. Inspiration on all fronts. Love it all.
