Happy Thursday, friends! Thanks for visiting my weekly "I Like" post. I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color, where you can find all sorts of positive posts!
Although I don't bake very often, once in awhile I find a recipe I have to try. I follow Jo at Jo's Country Junction, and she recently shared a recipe for Peach Muffins that looked good. Since it's fresh peach season here, I decided to try it. They turned out yummy!
Jo's recipe made about 18 muffins, and that's too many for us,
so I cut it in half, and it still made 10. They're very tasty with the peaches in them.
Jo says any fruit will work!
Those pesky squirrels that our yard is full of have been trying to chop down the tall sunflowers that are growing in our backyard. I'm hoping to save this one - do you think it will bloom? Stay tuned!
LeeAnna asked about favorite sandals this week, and I have to admit I'm not much of a sandal wearer. But I do love to walk so need good shoes for that. Daily walks around the neighborhood for exercise, walks at the nature trails with friends, hiking and birdwatching, and golf games all require good shoes. My favorites right now are from Saucony. I found the first pair in a local Famous Footwear, and since then have been ordering them from Amazon. Do these shoes look lived in or what?!
I always have a pair on my feet and a brand new pair still in the box
waiting in the closet!
Mike and I took my mom up to a quilt exhibit in Ft. Collins yesterday. It is called "New Legacies: Contemporary Art Quilts." This show has been going on since 1981, and my mom actually had a quilt in the show back in the 80s when it first started. (Sadly, she doesn't remember that, and I was busy with two little boys back then, so I don't remember the quilt or even know what happened to it!) Back then it was more about traditional quilting and called Fabric of Legacies. Now it is very definitely contemporary art quilts and they were fascinating to see!
These were my favorites. I wish I had taken a close-up of them. The sections that look like they are made of striped fabric are actually many (many!) tiny strips sewn together, and then a lot of curved piecing. They were amazing!
This is a juried show with prizes awarded.
to see the Grand Prize winner. It's amazing!
Have a great day!
