Raspberry Jam

Yesterday I went raspberry picking and last night I made Jam!

*Smush  smush  smush*

*After all the boiling and sugar I have the jam cooling here on the now stained towel, oopsy!*

*JAM!  All labeled and ready for eatin'*

I followed this black raspberry recipe but I didn't use any lemon in mine.  
This was my first time making jam and it turned out yummy!  I'm very happy with it! :)

See ya later!

Yarn Love!


I went to Hobby Lobby for the first time the other day!  There isn't one around where I live so it was a little bit of a drive.  I got some cool new yarns, which I already started making something with!  I also got these awesome knitting needles, they have a pretty swirl going though the inside of them! :)

Also, my Knit Picks order came!  I got Brava bulky in Cornflower and Tranquil and Brava worsted in Tidepool and Brindle.  I was able to get one for free while they were running the special offer, I love free yarn!! :)

See ya!

Turtle On The Path

 I went for a walk the other day and found this turtle on the path!


I was so surprised at how big he was. :)  I wonder if he had been someones pet.

What a nice surprise!

Missed camera opportunity: 
I wish I had had my camera with me the day before yesterday when we came across a shaking and screaming bush!!! It was so scary and so funny at the same time.  We heard screaming and growling and the bush was shaking violently then finally a big brown furry creature came tumbling out and I realized it was two creatures!  Groundhogs mating!  And the female was not happy about it!  She was biting and scratching and then she ran away to the other side of the trail into more bushes and he followed... And I followed.... And then the male, I assume, came back out, growling and chased me away as I screamed!  Apparently I was messin' up his "game."  Oops! 

See ya later!

Star Wars!


Just a quick post today to show off my sweet new Star Wars phone pouch!  I just made it last night and I love how it turned out.  It has a little bit of padding too, the inside is a pre-quilted material with batting. ( I drop my phone too much!).  The first one I made, the tester, was leopard print and that one came out really nice too, I might add a couple to my Oddity:86 shop!

See ya!
