If you are a "non-responder or OpenID-er" which to me means I have no way of responding to a comment that you've left, please leave a way for me to get in touch with you, especially if you're participating in a blog give-away or if you are asking for information or links.
By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....
me at yahoo dot com
this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.
Thank you, in advance.....Ravelly Rhonda!!

Chit Chat & A Give Away

Let me tell you about my weekend!
First I had a little visitor......yep, you guessed it, Ayden came for a visit showing off her new hat that she picked out all by herself.
After some vigorous playing, on Ayden's part, as GoGo sat watching from a safe distance......that little girl has too much energy.....I wonder if she'd be willing to share.......LOL.  This was followed by a nice chicken salad, fruit and crackers lunch then Ayden and parents headed out for home.



 
Which brings me to the fresh figs I got my hands on. Five pounds of them. I plunged in, cutting off the stems, cut them in half, poured sugar over them and began the one hour process of cooking and canning. OMG, the smells were heavenly. I wound up with 5 half pint and 4 pint jars of fig jelly. There was about a fourth of a cup of juices left so I saved that in the frig to pour over a pork roast that I'll be cooking in a couple of days. I throw nothing away......LOL



Recipe:
5 lbs. figs
4 lbs. sugar
Remove stems; cut figs in half; pour into large pot, figs and sugar. 
Cook over low heat stirring constantly until figs are tender and there is plenty of juice. (about 30 to 40 minutes)
Pour into hot mason jars, seal and place in hot water bath for 15 minutes.



Now, for the give away.  
Let's see if any one else resembles this...
I often go to quilt shows, love just about everything I see and wind up purchasing designs and patterns that, at the time, I just know that I'll get around to making very soon. Needless to say, it "never" happens and I'm left with these wonderful patterns, not able to throw them away but they are taking up space that fabric could be using.
Anybody out there have that problem?
So, I'll be giving away these types of things for a bit. If you want a chance at this first one just leave a comment on this post and you are in the "HAT"
I'll pull a name in a few days, get the winner's addy and rest a little easier.
In the coming months, I'll be doing some other give aways that are slightly more complicated because more items will be involved but that's another story....LOL

I have similar problems. I rarely use a pattern but I have several.
I don't want this one, but if you pick my name give it to whoever comments at number 7
