Goodbye April

Well as we are saying goodbye to April, I thought about this past month and all the ups and downs. We have definitely had temperature swings to say the least! This month has went by fast and I certainly have enjoyed having those local strawberries come in early. How about you? I have been busy in the kitchen canning our homemade Strawberry Jam and Strawberry Jalapeno Jam. I've been making our super popular Strawberry Butter too. I actually just had some with our crumpets this morning for breakfast! YUMMO!

Be sure to go back to our last Blog to see some pretty pics of the jarred goods! Stop by for all things StRaWbErRy!!!

We are finishing up Quilt Week 2024 and it has been a pleasure to get to visit with our regulars that come in to see us each year! It's a little like a family reunion :) I sure hope everyone has enjoyed shopping with us this year and look forward to seeing them again next year!

So thankful for the cooler temps and no rain during the day!!! What a great weather week!

Just one of my sweet Quilter friends!!! I am so thankful to have these wonderful ladies come in to catch up!!

I did a quick recover on our antique theater seats on our front porch! I just love the bright and cheerful colors! I certainly think it was very good timing for Quilt Week ;) Don't you? HAHA
