Eat your heart out, Martha Stewart

Just got back from visiting family in northern California.  Apparently, my sister has been busy.

She made this table a few weeks back.  She had never done any woodworking before, but she figured, "How hard can it be?" Then she bought all the chairs at thrift stores and painted them.

Naturally, the tomatoes were from her garden.  They are quite abundant.
She let us take home some jam that she made. Her daughter painted the labels.  I am working my way through the peach/blackberry.
 Oh, and did I mention she quilts?

How about you? Busy lately?

Oh my, she's quite productive and talented! I've never been able to finish one craft project, let alone that many!

Aww, thanks Margaret! I'm blushing.

Very talented and impressive!
(I didn't even get around to planting flowers in my patio pots this year....)

Amazing daughter of an amazing mother! Beautiful table and lovely display.

Busy being a tourist/visitor.

Your sister does many things beautifully.

Every family needs at least one over achiever. And we have to love them because they are family.

I tried to grow tomatoes this year...failed miserably!

Thank you for adding to my current overwhelming sense of inadequacy.


Congratulations on choosing such a talented sibling

She sounds like my sister! I have neither the eye nor the inclination for such projects, while my sister has single-handedly redecorated her home many times, worthy of architectural digest.

I'm kind of thinking what Desiree said. I love your sister, she is wonderful. Geez. She reminds me of a certain Facebook friend I have.

what Olga and Desiree said!!!

(I love her table and chair ideas...would that combo hold up in snow???)

Everything looks wonderful. You come from a very talented family.

Very impressed! Cooking is the closest to crafts that I get . . . I have ambitions but never pull them off. Those jars of jam look cool - she should sell them at farmer's market!

Fantastic table, yummy looking tomatoes, and great quilt. And yes, busy would be an understatement for me these days!!!
