I'm leaving my pretty tree at home and heading up to Tobermory to spend a week with the Beach Girls.
My contributions:
  •  one breakfast - blueberry/peach oatmeal bake
  • one appetizer - butternut squash tart with fried sage leaves
  • one supper - baked salmon with roasted potatoes, butternut squash, beets, salad
  • cocktail - Frosty Lemon Martini
I have about six projects loaded up, and if I sew as per usual I will get to maybe three of them.  But that's better than none of them, right?

My big excitement this week was winning my very first INTERNET prize. runs a scrappy challenge and I won quilt batting.  Yay!!  Hopefully that won't be my last prize.  But ya gotta play to win.


  1. Congrats on your win. Have fun at the retreat. Sounds like no one will be hungry. Your meal contributions sound yummy.

  2. Have never heard of fried sage leaves....or butternut squash tart. I will have to do an internet search for this. Sounds interesting. I like your last line, you have to play to win. I usually don't play, so maybe I will try and see if I win. (


Please - share your wisdom...
