Okay, I know I'm the last person in the world to discover amigurumi (like the cute elephant above), but here's the 'prototype' I'm working on (below). I ran out of gray yarn and just couldn't face Walmart on Saturday (our only yarn source here in the back woods), so since this is just an experimental prototype and all, I thought it might be okay if he was blue and gray. Isn't he a funny looking little guy? Here's the link to the free pattern on Lion Brand's website (hope it works -- you might have to sign in first?). There are a lot of other cute ones there also -- love the love birds.

Hopefully, I'll finish him this weekend after I get off the peach preserving assembly line :-). I almost called this blog 'Peaches on the Concho' -- a play on the title of Collette Rossant's book Apricots on the Nile (a great food memoir about her life in Egypt and France), but it doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it? Maybe I should have anyway, as peaches seem to be a strongly recurring theme here. Oh, and see the little jar with what looks like real sprouts growing in it (behind the jars of peach preserves in the picture below)? I got that last weekend at First Monday in Canton at 'LaurieAnna's Vintage Home'. She has the greatest things, and she's opening a shop in Canton this week (Aug. 15) which I can't wait to visit. Now I can go see what great things she has even when it's not First Monday weekend.

Just one more thing -- I happened to catch Duffy on the Early Show this morning -- loved this song -- 'Warwick Avenue' -- which should be playing on my Playlist now. I had heard her song 'Mercy' before but nothing else. Anyhoo, I really like her music -- kind of a 60's vibe to it. Harry Smith said she reminded him a little of Dusty Springfield -- I agree.
