Life outside the studio

One of the delights of working with my amazing crew is taking a break to have a snack.  It's been so much fun to find and share recipes with them that I thought it would be fun to share with all of you as well.  Thus, this  week I've added a new page.  Recipes.  As I spend most of my time working, I find that I prefer to feed my family recipes that take only moments to prepare or that I can make in bulk and freeze for another day.  For the first recipe, I've posted Cornbread Casserole.  I love cornbread but am sometimes disappointed by a dry crumbly piece.  This recipe solves that problem.  It's always moist and it's delicious covered in honey.

Midge and Gidget are so grown up that I miss their puppy antics.  I'm delighted that Midge will still eat any flower she finds (this week it's tulips) and that all it takes to get Gidget in a playful mood is a little baby talk.  Moments ago my precariously hanging coat (It's suddenly winter again) fell on the floor and after a good bark they both took advantage of a soft spot on which to nap.

Now for work...Here are this week's highlights.
Enjoy.
Jill

Beautiful pieces Jill. I just found your blog! I knew you were out there, from Karen Rife, whom you've cut mats for. I was hoping to have you cut a mat for me, but I don't know how to go about ordering one. Can you let me know? I'd appreciate it! TIA!! Hope you're having a great week!
