Not quite done with salt preserving…. and another finished quilt project

I was very interested in the topic of salt preserving that was introduced in February’s Food in Jars challenge and wasn’t quite done after the salt preserved lemons. This evening I finally had all the ingredients to make lemon parsley garlic salt from Preserving by the Pint. It smells amazing! It’s sitting out on the plate for the next few days to dry out. 

Then it will go in a glass jar to sit in the pantry with my other spices. I’m excited to experiment with it and taste how much fresher it is going to be compared to commercially available flavored salts. And it was so easy that I might not be done…..cilantro lime salt, anyone? #fijchallenge

In the world of quilting, I was able to complete my Annette challenge last week. Annette was a member of my quilting guild and bee and a dear friend. She passed away last year, and we are putting together a display at our quilt show next month. She loved snowmen so when I saw this pattern from Primitive Gatherings, I knew this is what I wanted to make and display in memory of Annette.

I have a small series of gardening classes starting this weekend offered by my county extension office. I hope it inspires me because I have done zero planning for my garden this year, and although there is snow outside now, spring is coming!
