Peach Jam

Look at all these peaches.  A friend and I turned them into jam.

 

We will be eating jam for a while.  

 

The recipe is from my all time favorite jam book "Food in Jars" by Marisa McClellan.

 

I think it's time for a piece of toast

 

or two.

Faithful Place

From the Goodreads website:  "Back in 1985, Frank Mackey was a nineteen year old kid with a dream of escaping his family's cramped flat on Faithful Place and running away to London with his girl, Rosie Daly. But on the night they were supposed to leave, Rosie didn't show. Frank took it for granted that she'd dumped him - probably because of his alcoholic father, nutcase mother, and generally dysfunctional family. He never went home again. Neither did Rosie. Then, twenty-two years later, Rosie's suitcase shows up behind a fireplace in a derelict house on Faithful Place, and Frank, now a detective in the Dublin Undercover squad, is going home whether he likes it or not. 

Getting sucked in is a lot easier than getting out again. Frank finds himself straight back in the dark tangle of relationships he left behind. The cops working the case want him out of the way, in case loyalty to his family and community makes him a liability. Faithful Place wants him out because he's a detective now, and the Place has never liked cops. Frank just wants to find out what happened to Rosie Daly - and he's willing to do whatever it takes, to himself or anyone else, to get the job done."

Another winner.  I got drawn into the story right away.  I love her books and I've got the next one in my "to read" stack".

Colorations Again

I've done some more stitching on Colorations

 I would have had more done, but sadly, there was unstitching involved with my last session.

Morgan's Quilt

The borders are on and I have started the quilting.

 

I am using the circle template as a visual reference so that my flowers are close to the same size.

 This girl loves her green.

Critters in the Garden

There are still a few things blooming in our garden.  I love the colors on the Hot Pokers.

Autumn Joy sedum is a garden staple.  The bees love it.

 And we have a visitor.

I don't mind seeing him out in the middle of the yard, but when I run into him coming around a corner  . . . lets just say I immediately reverse direction.

And a new little dragon friend.  He followed me home from Morganton, NC.  Oak Hill Iron + Wood to be specific.
