Working on some new listings

I spent part of the morning working on some new listings and tweaking others. Unfortunately the listing portion of Etsy is down so I guess I'm done for a bit.

Here are a few of the pieces I'm working on and one I have to list. These first 2 pieces can be framed and used as pictures too. I love the subtle colors and the Jacobean look of these 2 flower cards.

This picture will be great for fall and would look cute with some of the felted wool acorns I have in my shop sitting at the base of the framed piece.

Grilled Zucchini

We always have tons of zucchini to eat every summer. The garden is growing very slowly this year though due to lack of rain and the abnormally cool weather. Once we do get some zucchini to eat, my favorite way to eat it is grilled. Here's my recipe for grilled zucchini. Couldn't be any easier than this recipe.

Grilled Zucchini

2 or 3 medium zucchini
Olive oil
1 Package of Dry mix Good Seasons Italian Dressing

Wash your zucchini, cut off the stem ends and the blossom ends. Cut the zucchini in half and then cut each half in half again. Cut each long strip into 3 inch chunks. Line them all up on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil. Then sprinkle the Dry Good Seasons Italian Dressing mix over each slice until they are all lightly covered.

Grill until tender.

This is one of the best ways to make grilled zucchini and so easy. If you use large zucchini, make sure and cut the seeds off of each long strip.

Some new finished items

With summer being almost upon us I have been super busy getting our garden planted, cutting grass, and opening our pool. I have managed to squeeze out some crafting time. This is a primitive pear that I cross stitched and finished.
I'm working on another pear that I am stitching on a green Aida fabric. Had to take some time away from cross stitching to work on a custom order for some felted acorns. These are such a soft purple color.
I'm now trying to choose another project to start working on. I have such a hard time deciding which pattern to stitch first. There just aren't enough hours in the day to stitch every pattern I have in my stash. Happy crafting!
