Smitten Kitchen grilled cheese

Hannah and I had lunch yesterday with my good friend Kathy, a music journalist who is just so fierce–I’ll be posting more about her in the new year when she starts popping up on my television regularly. We ate at Spuntino, home of the supremely yummy small plates and burgers and truffle fries. She told me I’d “finally” posted another recipe (that baked ziti). Her devotion to this little blog of mine earns her all of the hugs and a quilt that I just delivered. More on that later. In the meantime, here is another recipe. I fully believe in giving the person what they want…or something?

hannah haircut

We cut Hannah’s hair a month ago, but I keep forgetting to post!

It was time, and I love the sassy little bob. She was constantly pushing hair out of her face, and she hated having her hair done in the morning. I love Adam to death, but he is not gifted at doing her hair. So on the mornings that he gets her ready so I can get to work, she looked a little rough. But still super cute!

victory garden 1

I’m working on a new quilt! This is such amazing news as it is the first quilt I’ve been able to share since the Double Rainbow quilt (which I finished back in April). I have one quilt out to a magazine, hopefully that will be published early next year. And I’ve been working on another one for a magazine, too. I can’t share those, so this is only the second quilt of 2014 that I can post photos of.

mom outfits summer 2014

Can we just take a moment to oooh and aaah over the outfits my mom churned out for Hannah this summer? She was kind of on a roll.

Sandy Hook Bay

This girl had such a great season. Last summer H wasn’t even walking on her own yet. This was her first real kid summer, and I’m sad to see it go. I mean, it’s still 84 degrees outside, but you know how summer feels “over” once Labor Day comes and goes. From Lancaster with my mom to the county fair to fruit picking to visiting grandparents, we did a ton of stuff in those two-and-a-half months. I didn’t realize how much until I looked back this morning. Here are some more summer photos.

strawberry basil jam

…is very, very late in arriving. I know, strawberry season has been over for 2 months in NJ. But, it was a great season around here, and there are always frozen strawberries (which I am seriously considering for one of the amazing jams I made too little of). So, this is what we did this year.

MC Fair 2014 1

I didn’t take a lot of pictures, but we did make it to the county fair last month. So many animals to make a toddler happy!  Read more on 2014 Monmouth County Fair…

It’s been a quiet summer for sewing, but I finally finished this project. It wasn’t especially time consuming, but it still took me forever. I wasn’t happy with the first fabrics I picked and waited until the Cotton + Steel bundles I preordered came in from Westwood Acres Fabrics. I. Love. Them. And decided that even though I’d only ordered fat quarters I would squeeze this hat pattern out of them. Hence the totally misaligned purple print…actually, that was probably just a crazy print to make a curvy project out of, but I couldn’t help myself. It was calling out to me in the night.  Read more on Hannah’s Bucket Hat…

We went back to Lancaster July 1-3, but this time it was three generations of women heading to Kitchen Kettle Village. I do love it there, although after our second stay in the Inn at Kitchen Kettle Village I’m a little grossed out by the infrequently-washed carpets. It was much worse this time, I may have to rethink things for our next visit.

This is what we got ourselves up to.

It has been busy around here. Today was Hannah’s last day of school, and I’ve been writing and sewing quite a bit. Plus, all of the makeover prep for this site!

So, it is taking a while to finish posting these trip photos from Normandy. I still have quite a few, but I’m going to bust them all out in one final post.

I love, love, loved Rouen. I especially loved the timber-framed buildings.
