Yesterday DH and I spent the day back at the cabin that he built for me last year. We got the pine ceiling installed (what a job putting up 16 ft lengths of pine and nailing them over our heads) We are sore today :(
The windows were also installed and it is starting to come together. I made us a lunch and we enjoyed that sitting on the porch. I forgot to take my camera back there for picture taking, but I'll be sure to take some this week. The weather was gorgeous yesterday and it was so enjoyable working back there. We took all 3 dogs back there with us and they had a ball.
Hope everyone is having a great week.

Yesterday, I attended a day of sewing with some friends and we enjoyed a delicious pot luck dinner too. It all started at 9:30 am in a church basement in Exeter and finished up at 9:30 pm. Everyone was asked to bring a dish of food for our pot luck dinner and what a great meal we had. There was lasagna, beans, ham, hash brown casserole, salads and lots of yummy goodies for desert. We had a great time and we all accomplished so much in the way of sewing. I got a few projects pieced and now I just have to sandwich them and get the quilting done. There were 10 ladies sewing all day and 2 more joined us for dinner and sewing afterwards. A great day!
One of the projects I made, a little table topper

I am the lucky winner of an awesome gardening book. Last week I came upon a site that has so many recipes, gardening tips etc. I have tried a couple of the recipes on there so far and they were delicious, the feta swiss chard pie and the peanut butter cookies.  Tonight I am making the baked lemon asparagus pasta. We have a huge garden and I love to can, cook and bake so I will get a lot of use out of the book. I also ordered her cookbook and it should be arriving any day.
If any of you are interested in the site, I would highly recommend it.
