In my kitchen:
Yes, this IS last week's blueberry buckle, although it IS this week's picture of it, which shows how long it will keep. Trust me, it's still moist and yummy. I know because I ate that whole big piece and left Freddy only a couple crumbs. (hee hee....he wasn't happy either, and kept looking to PapaGeek to put down HIS plate. Can you believe PapaGeek opted for a Klondike bar over this? Freddy couldn't believe it, either!) Anyway, there is the recipe!
Zucchini (or courgette!...a new word for me. I'm using it all the time. No one here knows what I'm talking about! Would you like some courgette? Sometimes it hard to give away zucchini....but courgettes!) I PROMISE you...these were NOT in the garden yesterday. One day I'm thinking about actually BUYING one....the next, I have enough to share. So the kitchen goes into its zucchini mode...
this is the 'cute' tool...
but guess which is the most useful one? (for grating nutmeg, not for grating the zucchini!)
also known as zucchini blogiversary cake!

Three (3!!!) years ago today, I hit the 'publish' button (twice--oops!) for the first time. I thought I was going to be 'journaling' my knitting life for myself; I thought this would force me to be just a bit more creative, a little less of a copycat, and to branch out into other arty pursuits. I was wrong. Along the journaling journey I've met so many amazing knitters, gardeners, writers, photographers, foodies, and artists who have not only inspired me (I've now elevated myself to copycat-extraordinaire), but who have become my friends. Little did I know then that THIS is the real reason for blogging.
So, thank you all....for spending time in my space, but most of all, for commenting and letting me get to know you and your blog (if you have one).
But what to give away? Obviously, something I've made. Something wooly, but not yarn. (See, I realize some people who read this don't actually knit!!) Something useful to anyone, but still usable by crafty people.
I couldn't come up with anything other than the pincushion.
(The pattern is Cearnog by Tammy Eigeman Thompson. Cearnog is an Irish word, meaning 'square', although after a lot of seaching I found it could also mean 'polygon'. I personally think it ended up looking like a star.....and anyone who comes back post after post after post to read about !KNITTING! is most definitely a 'star' in my world.)
To be entered, just simply leave a comment!
The giveaway will close next Thursday, August 21. Good luck everyone.
joining Heather for this week in my kitchen.
