Baby Jackets, Raspberry Jam, and Cousins!



Today was a great day! For starters Laurel and I made a batch of raspberry jam and the whole house smelled of summer. Ohhh..it was just delightful! Then we had a wonderful unexpected visit from our cousins who moved away to Seattle last December. So we drank tea and ate cookies while catching up on all the latest news and holding adorable Brinna. :) She has grown so much since the last time I saw her it was almost like a different baby! We really enjoyed getting to see them again. Finally, this evening Laurel and I finished two sewing projects that we started last week. We found this cute baby jacket pattern at a fabric store in Olympia and knew that we had to make some. It just so happens that a family we know is due to have twins any day now, so we decided to get a sewin'. We think they turned out marvelously and we will certainly use the pattern again. Ohh...what a day!

The baby jackets are SO adorable!! You did a wonderful job sewing them!

Raspberry jam.... sigh... how I LOVE this stuff!! My friend's mother used to make some (the freezer jam method) each summer and would often send some home with me. My mouth waters just thinking about how delicious this was!!! Oooh! How wonderful it would be to have some right now!!
