Weekly Snapshot

Monday, July 14, 2014

Happy Monday! I thought it was high time for a snapshot post. Mostly because it has been too long since the last George photo! He is one photogenic rabbit!

Wild Black Raspberries
It is wild black raspberry season! I have been eating them as soon as I pick them. I did break down and make a couple batches of freezer jam.  I had made it before but was so-so about it. This time I took the time to strain out the seeds and it's 1000x better! I am looking forward to enjoying it all year!

Pogona Progress
I started a new knitting project! It's for the third quarter challenge over at Eat Sleep Knit. I'm knitting the Pogona Shawl by Stephen West. More info over on Ravelry.

Hello Kitty Shelves
I put up some simple skinny shelves last week for some of my mini collections. Some of my favorite Hello Kitty trinkets took over! I might shorten the loops and add another row, there are quite a few more HK tins!

Bijoulovely Stitching Treats
I have been putting some new knitting goodies to use lately! These are from my sweet friend Holly! You can find the knitting gauge and thread organizer in her shop, here!

Orla Kiely
I love having matching things, so I didn't hesitate to add these things to my purse! (Both are from Target, purse is from Amazon)

Fourth of July
Michael and I managed to get out the big camera on the 4th! We're making an effort to take more photos!

Ever hear of the Prince and the Pea? :)


  1. I LOVE that last photo! Prince George!!

  2. I have just found your beautiful blog. Thank you for sharing such lovely photos.
    Kindest Regards Linda

  3. Yummy! You should do a black raspberry jam recipe! :] // itsCarmen.com ☼

    1. I just use the freezer jam recipe that comes in the Sure Jell pectin box! It's awesome and super simple!

  4. That bunny of yours has the life. He deserves it too, because he really works it as a model. Have a great day!

  5. George is starting a new trend. Instead of cats on quilts it is bunnies on quilts.

  6. Jeni-you and Michael make such a cute couple. I am glad he gets on the blog now and then!

    Oh the photo of George is so adorable. I do think he is photogenic indeed! He is the cutest bunny I know.... and the other cute bunny is my brother's bunny Odie.
    I always love coming to your page and looking at what you have made and collected.
    I have a Hello Kitty collection of goodies too. Some people actually think she is weird!!!!!! I know, how awful and mean. I love Hello Kitty and her friends too. They are all sweet.
    You are amazing Jeni. You and Michael are a very good looking couple and it is so great to meet him!! :::waves::: greetings Michael :-)

  8. Love the handbag and matching stuff. George always brings a smile.

  9. I love the colors in your quilt! Did you choose them to complement George? That Pogona shawl will be gorgeous in that yarn. Can't wait till Geometric Bliss is available!

  10. Ahhh George! I missed his bunny face! I love the first picture's quilt behind George on the wall - great colors :)
