Fresh flowers from “Floralescence” I bought gladiolus and sunflowers so pretty. They make me smile:-)

 

“Newmarket Olive Co” has delicious Oils and Vinegar for bread dipping or salads and so much more. But hey let them tell you how to use them. “Eat What You Love Drink What You Want” Perfectly said.

 

Kitchen &CO has class that you too can sign up for, just go see their class list.  I attended  todays class  “Create A Swoon-Worthy Charcuterie & Cheese Board”! Hosted by  “Seed To Sausages”  I know a lot more about cheeses and sausages now! Good chatting to couples waiting in line and at the table. Fantastic afternoon spent there, I call it “Me Time;-)))”

 

 

Oh you should see all the deserts and bread! You will be amazed and I can guarantee you it will be hard to figure out what to get for your sweet tooth!

 

Chips, Chips and more all freshly made just for You with flavours of Salt and Malt and much more! I tell you people where lining up to get a taste of the “Ray Woody’s Craft Chippery” Chips.

Have I told you this is a wonderful place to meet people too. I have chatted with people from Toronto, Sharon, Innisfil and really loved chatting with the 3 couples at my table exchanging how they store cheese, LOL (see class above that I attended).

Smile, now you know what I did for the last 2 days while my hubby was hiking up in the North of Michigan. Taking my daughter to her new work place as I enjoyed her new surroundings too. “Sam I know You Can Do It”

Dehydrated Tomates

 

 

IMG_4571

Love the rich red colour of these tomatoes.

It is all around us right now the ripe fruits and vegetables are an indication of the end of summer season.  Apples, peaches, pears, corn, cabbages and yes tomatoes.

I am luck to have this Holland Marsh  wetland close by well about 20 minutes driving distance from my home.  As per their website “Produce selections range from more traditional crops such as carrots, onions and celery, to more diverse options like Chinese broccoli, Asian radish, and water spinach”.  So a lot of the vegetables I believe are coming from there to our local store that I have right around my home.

I also have a knitting / sewing friend that grows carrots and onions right in Holland Marsh. Luck for me I have been getting a bag here and their from her and her husband. With the onions  I make this amazing yummy onion soup. Carrots are great for carrot cake or soup too.

So since yesterday I have been dehydrating 3 baskets full of tomatoes so my hubby can take them on his up-coming hike to  Munising Falls Michigan (Pictured Rocks) with his hiking friends.

Have a great September to all of you.

I may have to do the same with apples soon

Reaching Out To Fellow Bloggers

IMG_4166Just like many of you, I have been on WordPress for many years too.

And I was wondering if I could ask You for some input…

At the beginning lets say about 10 years ago, I started postings so my parents in Switzerland could see what I am working on here in Canada. Some of you may know I also posted each post in English and German to make it easy for them and German-speaking readers.
Since my dad past, I kind of stopped the German posting as one can switch to have it translated.

Unfortunately my mom doesn’t understand how to use the computer but enjoys to Skype with me.

So here is where I am reaching out to You.

I am doing pretty much what you are doing. Perhaps it is the topics that I am posting. Everyone loves food but not everyone can enjoy the knitting etc.
I used to comment and like a lot of other posts by Bloggers and WordPress post. With the Blogger sits I often had to do the posting over and over again as it just would not go through and needed all the passwords etc. found that very time-consuming, and often the comments did not go through. So I lost interest in doing this….sorry.
As well as it felt that I “liked” and “commented” but not really got any reply back…..

I know I should say oh well why do I worry about that?

Since I love to see your posts and like to show you my work and enjoy helping others..it is my passion to be creative.

But that doesn’t stop me from wondering sometimes what do fellow bloggers do to get the comments on sometimes a very simple post, or even just a picture and one sentance?
I don’t believe I have to pay for that or sign up with a services.

 I believe my posts should be from what I believe in and how I see my KnitswissYarns Blog. So I just keep on doing what I love and have fun …..the passion continues…

Have a wonderful weekend and if by chance you feel like sending me some info where I can improve my posts …you know what to do….smiles send me a note.

I do care and I thank you for feedback…

Jelly Roll Bag

Photo 2018-07-11, 3 36 35 PMI was inspired by this Jelly Roll Rug…and well you know I have a thing for Bags…So I thought of creating my own bag with the same method.

So a customer at work had her quilt quilted and did not need the extra fabric that we usually have to cut off to straighten the quilt. She gave all that to me. It already had some of the batting sewn on to the strips that I cut into 2,5″ strips. Yes I know it has some of the sewing from quilting on the strips ….That doesn’t bother me at all.  I find it adds the uniqueness to this bag.

I had some fabric that was perfect in colour to make my sided and leather handles that oh yes are just perfect for this bag too.  Love the green and brown together…

Hope to have this pattern soon available for You too to make your fun bag too and see where it will go….

Spring Flowers

IMG_1973Flowers are blooming everywhere now…

So not just animals and bugs are in my backyard…

Pink Peony so beautiful

Enjoying the sunshine too. Beautiful day today ….

Peony is one flower I am happy to have in my garden…

Yes Ants come with this flower…Don’t mind that either…I know they serve a purpose…IMG_1947

Just care less for ant hills in the grass.

Adorable Chipmunks

IMG_0517Sitting in my backyard watching all the chipmunks racing around…

Yes they dug up one of my planter….gurrr….

but then they also eat all the seedlings “Airplanes” as I call them falling from the Maple Trees.

So they kind of help me too.
