June welcomed back the church's annual Clarksville Picnic which I volunteered at for almost two weeks.
That means finding treasures you never knew you were missing!
Although I was in the pricing room, I never priced anything I wanted to get; I waited until it was marked and then paid that price.
This was one of those treasures, a Yonanas soft serve maker. It was priced at $3 and I happily paid it even if didn't work out in the end.
Basically you start with frozen bananas and then alternate adding whatever other frozen fruit you like. The first time I made it, my girlfriend Kim came over for a girls night and she laughed at it. After we made it (with bananas and mangos), she quickly apologized because it was delicious!
So far I've used mangos, blueberries, peaches, and strawberries. I want to try blackberries, pineapple, and maybe kiwi. There are plenty of "recipes" for other things, including Irish Coffee... yes, please!
Kim ended up looking online, found it at Walmart and ended up ordering one. She had friends try it after she got it and they ordered it too. Auntie Leela said she was going to get one and told her family in London about it and they are supposed to get it too! Let me know if you end up getting one, even without a taste test!
Easy clean up and after mixing it up when it's finished, it's perfect. I usually freeze half of it for the next day.
There weren't a lot of stitched pieces for sale, but these are the ones I saved. Sadly, none of them were signed by the person who stitched it. I always add my initials and date, even if it's on the back. I thought most people do, but maybe not. Do you?
This treat was $20, and I plan to paint or stain it and change the handles. I want to use this to put my fabric in, it should be easier to find it in there.
I showed this to DH and the Gmen, but they weren't interested. Such a shame, I thought it was cool!
On the day of the picnic, Nathan helped out with the youth group's dunking booth and I was the first one to dunk him. Such fun!
This was not found at the picnic, but I forgot to post it for my birthday. Dear Karen bought this for my birthday at The Stitching Post's model sale they had. I love it! I actually bought the chart years ago and hadn't stitched it yet, and here it is all finished and framed! It does look lighter in daylight, it's lovely.
And just like that, June was over and now it's almost August! I'll catch up eventually.
