Ok, yikes!  It's been a weird winter and I think it's had a trickle-down effect on the rest of everything else.  It's time to order garden seeds and there's still a post with a photo of LAST Spring on my homepage.  That is just. not. right.

Remember the totally fun and girlie eyelet bag I teased you with a few posts down?  The issue of Sew Stylish magazine it appears in is on newsstands now, and I highly recommend you go get your copy, because there are some really great projects in there (besides my bag, of course!) and a whole bunch of fantastic inspiration.
Here's a peek:
Sew Stylish, Spring 2012
Anyway, this morning when I was poking around in the fridge looking for jam in an attempt to violate my "no sugar on a weekday" policy (since, hey, it's Thursday which means it's almost the weekend, right?)  I realized I'm out of both the Meyer lemon-thyme and the blood orange marmalades I made last year, which reminded me I've completely missed Meyer lemon season and almost missed blood orange season, argh.  Here's the happy memories of citrus from last winter:

That's the Meyer lemon-thyme in the back.  These two little jars of awesomeness served me so well, it's a shame I couldn't get my act together to replace their contents when the opportunity was at hand this year.  I used this on everything from toast to wood-fired oven pizzas.   Those pictures make me crave duck confit.  Maybe with some brie on a baguette...

Am I the only one who gets to this point in the season and starts freaking out about all of the favorite Winter food cooking she has so far failed to undertake?

You're not alone. I recently found the bag of balsamic-roasted beets I had stashed in the freezer. "To use all fall and winter" I believe was my refrain. We won't even mention the jars and jars and JARS of strawberry jam that still line the shelves in the basement. Strawberry season isn't all that far off now. Uffda.

For the purse, are these screw in grommets sold at sewing shops - and or do you have a few I could buy and try?
