Strawberry's are in season--one of my favorite seasons and fruits! Fresh, served in salads, pies, cakes, it is safe to say I am a little obsessed with strawberries. This year the Blackbird girls, Barb and Alma released a new booklet called Deck the Halls with six strawberry patterns and the Erica Michaels strawberries are just over the top!
In June, I am taking a strawberry finishing class. In preparation for the class, I stitched up a strawberry--a practice piece. This is a 2006 Blackbird Design strawberry--it's big, an overachiever strawberry.
During a recent trip to Hobby Lobby, I found this container and thought it was a good container for my stitched strawberries. (A new Hobby Lobby is opening soon in Providence Place--I can't wait, I have saved the date for the Grand Opening).
While tidying up my stitching space, I discovered these half square triangles. Thought it was time to give them some attention, finish up a project and make a dent in my fabric stash.
Also found the beginnings of my flag quilt--a Quilt of Valor. One of my 2018 goals is to finish this quilt--time to get sewing.
AppleJack and his cousins found their family cemetery! The cemetery has been very neglected and is in need of serious attention. This chimney was part of their family home.
While I was stitching strawberries, sewing quilts and clearing cemeteries, Emma Lerch was on spring break--wish she had taken me with her!
