I wanna sew!!!

Anxious to finish handquilting this green confetti baby quilt I years ago.  But homing and nesting awaits.  I have to clean a bathroom, finish painting a bedroom and prepare some food for tomorrows Sunday dinner.  Oh.  And maybe some loads of laundry.  *sigh*  I just wanna play!!!  Waaaaaaa.....

Happy Weekending pretty peoples!  Hope your blessed with family and friends who love you.  Bring joy to others and be a blessing to them.  xoxox

Olivia, my adotped Springer asked if she could keep this quilt.  Look at those puppy eyes.  How do I say no?

Spring Produce Market in Florida

Down the road from us is a very large produce market everyday in
I have a friend who has 8 children.  We go down there together, get tons of produce and split it up. Sharing is good.  Here's to hoping this post will spread good cheer to all my friends north or west of me, who are sick of winter. Spring is here!

We bought too many flats of strawberries, which were spoiling quickly.  Is there really such a thing as too many flats of strawberries?  What berries we didn't freeze, we ended up juicing with our carrots.  Divine!!!!!!  I can HIGHLY recommend carrot and strawberry together.  :)  Yum.

This is our juicer., by the way. I think I'm content with it. It's been good to us for many years. Do you own one? An idea for you too: If an engaged couple you know registered for one, think about making this investment for them with your gift.  My daughter wishes she had one and misses having accesses to ours.  I want to give her one for a gift...her birthday is coming.  Hmmmm....


We love juicing!! What are you favorite recipes?  We always seem to go with carrott and apple, but I want to try some new Juice Recipe Books  Oh wait, check this out.  I didn't even know Joe Cross had a book outDuh. Well why wouldn't he?  (Hi Joe Cross.  Big fan here!!  ~~~Waving Hello~~~)

Did you see Fat Sick & Nearly Dead? LIFE CHANGING!!

I would especially like to get more greens into our juice. I've got my heart set on juicing a Gazpacho, one of my favorite dishes in the world.  Berries, citrus and tomatoes are fairly inexpensive in Florida for awhile.  My friends and I are going to be putting up more fermented recipes we've found in Nourishing Traditions.  I'm ready to start canning!  

.  Care to share your ideas and recipes?
What is your favorite juice?

Oh!  I've been collecting some smoothy recipes on my Beverage Pinterest page.
Share some of your recipes here with me too!  

"Nom! Nom! Nom!...*kitten burps*....Dear Watson loves cooked carrots.  HUH???

Strawberry Season in Florida

The best time to visit Florida is strawberry season...right now.  Strawberries are $12.00 a flat and the weather is perfect.  It is an unbelievably beautiful day.  Not too hot.  Not too cold.  Low humidity. Perrrrr~fect.

I will be comfort fooding myself with strawberries as I sort through books.  Decluttering books is painfully sad work for a book lover.  The project will be made tolerable with freshly picked strawberries (and maybe a sprinkle pinch of refined white sugar...shhhhh).

It's a berry sweet life I live. Especially in March in Florida for a strawberry lover.

So grateful for this pretty little berry that brings me so much joy.  It's the little things, right?

What are you doing today?  Tell me!  :) 

I have been working on building a Strawberry Recipe board on Pinterest.   

Do you have a favorite Strawberry recipe?  
I think my favorite would be my mom's strawberry pie.  
How about you?       

Choose Joy!!!  
Be inspired.
Be kind.

Quilting Cat and Erin's a good day


How is your day going so far?

Dear Watson and I have been piecing our first Irish Chain using this book I've had for awhile: Time for a Chain: The Irish Chain Updated.  We're using purple and brown scraps.  It's sooooooooo pretty.  I need to sew the rows together and we're done. It's a smaller lap quilt I'm going to give to a friend who just lost her sister.  She needs some comfort.

Dear Watson wants you to see what a good helper he is.  He is an excellent block layer outer.


And this is happening.....  
Tomorrow maybe???

Please, please, please let tomorrow be the day I get my Erin Condren Planner.  She's having a sale on planners and labels, 40% off, so I decided to splurge and get me one.  I never spend money on myself and it actually felt good, to do something nice for ME, for a change.  Do you feel uncomfortable when you spend money on yourself.  I need to get over that!!  LOL  

Tim has been telling me for years to write stuff down.  I always tell him, "I did!  I wrote it down in my head".  LOL

She's also having a sale on notebooks and labels.  Go check out the site.  It's all so pretty, inspiring and motivating. 

If you are interested in Erin Condren products, please use  Sweet Woodruffs as a Referral.  We'll both get $10.00 towards product.  Go us!  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  :)  

Choose Joy!  
See you tomorrow, Lord willing and the creek don't rise.
