Sorry, I haven't been posting much. I've been trying to get two bathrooms painted. It is going much slower than anticipated and now the tape is not coming off very well... ugh! I wish I was quick and good at these things!

Santa bought one of these cars to our house two or three years ago and it still is a huge it. Whenever we have kids over they always want to be the one driving this car. It goes by itself! All the kids do is gently rock the steering wheel and off they go. Anyone, up to 220 lbs. (that can fit on this) can ride it. We keep it inside and use it on tile and linoleum with ease. I would say kids over seven or eight would be a little uncomfortable, but the kids would get a kick out of watching their dad ride it. It won an Oppenheimer toy award. The cheapest price I have ever seen it at is at Fat Brain Toys. Oh, and Amazon has started carrying them, too. Christmas present maybe...?

I read a cookbook that suggested you add 1 cup fresh raspberries to your pan of peaches when making a peach crisp recipe. I tried it and it adds a tartness to the sweet peaches that I really like. I also liked that the recipe suggested using some brown sugar instead of all white. I'd give you the recipe except that I didn't really like the topping part.
I've also read that you can do the same thing with an apple pie and that it will turn out very yummy! Don't you love it when all of these delicious fruits are farm fresh?

I enjoyed making up this quilt. I showed the preview before, but I thought I'd add a few more pictures. I used the fresh squeezed fabric line, I think it's a MODA fabric. The circles are zigzag appliqued on. The rest is just a mixture of random strips and squares.
