A spin around the Summer Kitchen...................
I just wanted to give you a spin around the Summer Kitchen and show you some new things...........
Tucked in the antique truck are lots of treasures. I've been re-stocking the dishcloths so there are many colors and patterns to choose from. The up-cycled pillow that I finished last week is there. And Sherry Porter made a fabulous bag ... Just beautifully done!
I am really excited to have Sherry's skillful sewing projects in the Summer Kitchen. Look at her fabric choices! Bright, pretty ... and fun!!!
These are sandwich/snack bags. They are washable and fantastic! We have been using the cloth sandwich bags for several years now. I toss ours in to the washer and hang to dry. They literally pay for themselves in about 4 months. If you pack your lunch ..... you need these!!! They are perfect for sandwiches, cookies, veggies .......... almost anything! Make-up, stitch markers, crochet hooks. Yea ... you will find a use for them!
And let's talk green! No plastic bags to just toss away!!!
Another fabulous farmer at Miss Eff's is Cassie Moon from Farm Genevieve. Fiber artist extraordinaire! Someone. Anyone. Please buy that fabulous magenta colored yarn!! Otherwise it is going in my stash and Honey said .... no more stash!!! Save me from myself!!!!!
|Aren't these coaster wonderful!!!!|
OK .... this is not the thing to show to help me control my spending!
I love, love, love fiber arts. And hooking ... rug hooking.... is something I have wanted to learn for years. Cassie is bringing some of her hooked creations to the farm. If I sell them ... she will bring more. These are coasters ... backed with a great plaid fabric.
Thank God, they don't have a chicken on them!!!! (hint)
Speaking of chickens.............
My dear friend Darcy from Full Circle Soap is creating a special line of soap for the Summer Kitchen. (I promise ...it won't smell of wet feathers.... although, that's a thought!) Until everything falls into place ........ we have a small selection of her soaps. Including the ever popular Sweet Mother Earth scent! For a remembrance of the QCA.... pick up a bar of Darcy's soap and one of our hand-knitted pima cotton facecloths or bath mitts and you have an instant gift!!!
The Summer Kitchen is open today from 9 to 3. I have been told ... more fabulous, local, hand-made treasures will be arriving in the next few days. Until then .... there are also some fresh eggs. And these...........
