Summer Time Blog Hop

Welcome to our day on the Summer Time Blog Hop!  We are so excited to have you here and we hope that you enjoy our recipe and pattern!

Out here in Southern California our summers can be HOT so we love to include cool, refreshing foods with our meals.  This sweet and tangy fruit salad is a great addition to any meal – breakfast, lunch, or dinner and is soooo yummy we even have it for dessert sometime.

We mix mangos, kiwis, and blueberries together and top with a delicious lime syrup and sprinkling of crystalized ginger.  Check out Stacy’s blog for the recipe card.

Refreshing Summer Fruit Salad


The pattern we have featured today is just as sweet as our tasty fruit salad!  A juicy summer strawberry needle keep to hold all of your needles and pins, perfect for those summertime road trips.

    Hi Kathy, thank you for your fun Shop Hop project (can’t wait to make this!) & yummy looking fruit salad. I couldn’t find your recipe card on Stacy’s site. Know you are all sooo busy, no worries…just thought I’d make a mention. Maybe you can post the entire recipe here 😀
