Sew Cool! I'm featured on Amy Butler's Softwares CD

Amy Butler has a new gig: softwares! That's a play on words for her new endeavor of providing projects with patterns on CD by Electric Quilt Company (retail is $29.95). And, I'm excited to be one of 31 featured sewers and crafters in her "inspired by amy" gallery on the CD.
I've looked through the CD, and I have to say it meets and exceeds the standards that we have all grown to expect from Amy's products. I can't believe the price either...a steal! You get all of those projects with patterns plus a nice gallery of inspirational photos for just $29.95. Unbelievable!

Awesome Strawberry Avocado Salsa Recipe

I made this strawberry and avocado salsa recipe today for mother's day. Thought I would share it! (It is from Cooking Light Magazine/May 2009)

1 cup finely chopped strawberries
1/4 cup finely chopped peeled avocado
2 tbsps finely chopped red onion
2 tbsps chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 tspn grated lime rind
2 tbsps fresh lime juice
2 tspns finely chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
1/4 tspn sugar

Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and toss gently. Serve immediately with chips (or on top of a roast chicken entree, fish or grilled pork).

Happy Mother's Day!
