Summer is in full swing at Harriet's and we are gearing up for the big summer event- the 2012 Shop Hop.

With the theme being Colorado wildflowers, you can bet we will have fun decorating the store for this event.
Carrie went a little over board this year and has made three quilts for the occasion. A graphic bright colored one, a more pastel one, great for a fast kids/baby quilt, and a small wall hanging the really showcases the wildflowers from this years fabric. Be sure to stop in and pick up your passport today and make your plans to attend the Rocky Mountain Quilt Fever 2012 Shop Hop.

We hope you enjoy them, and that you stop in and visit us at shop hop- or any time really- we're always glad to see you.

As promised- Carrie will be sharing some of her "famous" boot camp recipes here and here is this months installment:

Summer Gazpacheo
Serves 4

2 1/2 cups tomato juice
1 cup finely diced tomatoes (peel if the skins are tough)
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber (english cucumber is best)
1/2 cup finely chopped green (or yellow) bell pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped green onion
3 tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tbsp light taste olive oil
1 clove of garlic, finely minced

1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (reserve for serving)

In a large glass mixing bowl mix together all the ingredients except the parsley. Cover and refrigerate overnight. To serve add 1/2 tsp of fresh parsley to the top of each bowl.
Serve with work crusty bread and steak or is great as a light lunch all by itself.
