Projects So Far

This was my first project of the summer:

That would be hummingbird nectar if it had been cooked about 15 minutes less. (This is reminiscent of last summer: http://snippetygibbet.blogspot.com/2009/08/hummingbird-nectar.html) I never said I was a quick study.

That was yesterday. Today was a little more successful. I started working on a piece for my Granddaughter. She's spending a week with us soon, so I am making something for "her room."

Looks a little like cooled lava... maybe you will attract prehistoric hummingbirds :)

When I make nectar, I bring it just to a boil, just enough to dissolve the sugar. And... I always set the timer for 10 minutes. That's how long it takes from the time I turn the stove on to when the sugar is dissolved. I have never cooked the pot dry but I have made a very strong concentrate.

I think hummingbirds might like your carbon crackers...???

And I'm sure your g-girl will love the artwork made especially for her!

How old is your granddaughter? I have probably read before but forgot. She is lucky to have Grandma Jan's artwork around!!! Very cool.

prehistoric hummingbirds...God love you Jan!! It reminds of a post I did not long after we "met" about some disaster I had in the kitchen, and then a few weeks later you posted about some disaster you had in the kitchen. It was a bonding moment for me!
