using what I bought

This week, I used up 3 1/4 yards of fabric and half of a large zucchini. And posted a tutorial for a bird needlecase using the Go! Cutter. There's still time to enter my giveaway.

I'm actually kind of proud of myself for using the zucchini within a few days of buying it. For years now, I've been talking about making some zucchini bread and cookies. Mom made them when I was little, and I remember really liking them, so I thought my own kids might. I've bought the zucchini, more than once, but never made the recipies.

This time I got it used up before it spoiled and the kids ate both loaves of bread before I had a chance to take a picture. Which might or might not mean they liked them. I'll use up the rest of the zucchini this afternoon and see how fast that batch gets gobbled down.

Here are my numbers for this week. I can't believe it's taken this long to break the fifty yard mark!

Zuchinni bread sounds so good-haven't had any of that in a long time!

Congrats on 50! I didn't plant Zukes this year. It was purely by mistake. We LOVE them...fried, cake, bread, bars....
