Graduation Bunny

For my niece who is graduating this year.  I tried to make them in the school colors.

Madam Hedgehog and The Cook

Someone asked if I could knit a hedgehog for her.  I found a neat pattern and got my needles working.  The little "prickles" on her cap and back were fun to do.  An unusual request!  The second creature is the Cook who is holding a Christmas Pudding.  Notice the green holly an red berries on top?  Another fun project was the last one.  An Old English Sheepdog for a friend who lost hers recently.

Sunset on Shelter Haven Bay

    On Saturday, June 9, we visited Stone Harbor, NJ, one of our favorite year-round getaway destinations.  After dining at Carney's on Third Avenue, we were treated to this beautiful sight, the sunset reflected in the smooth waters of Shelter Haven Bay.  (That's the Hall Harbor Condominium at the right in this picture.)  Sadly, our stay was a short one, but we plan on another visit very soon!

Star Spangled Strawberries

I found a recipe for strawberries dipped in white chocolate dipped in blue sugar.  I think the recipe is in the latest Phyllis Hoffman magazine Celebrate.  What I did was to slowly melt white mint candies and dip the strawberry in it.  Then they went for a dip in the blue sugar.  Put them on a tray covered in waxed paper to harden.  Then off to a party where they were displayed on a cake plate.   Happy Fourth of July!
