It must be summer--I picked the first batch of blackberries this morning:
With any luck, every 2-3 days for the next 2-3 weeks I'll get this many again. The first gallon bag goes in the freezer for Christmas Cobbler--my sons don't get to enjoy these fresh from the garden so it's tradition that I make Blackberry Cobbler for Christmas dinner dessert. The rest I eat for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. Invite us to a BBQ--I'll bring cobbler!
The trick is to keep ahead of the birds--there are several mockingbirds that think this is their private patch!
Class yesterday was fun and productive for all 8 students. Those making the large star had the most cutting and sewing so did not get as far along as those making the smaller star. The book is "Simple Stars Beautiful Quilts" by Calico Carriage Quilt Designs. It's an easy way to make stars that look difficult but are not.
Brenda G. choose dusty batiks and will have a great quilt!
Of course, today I want to sew!! After a few more household chores, I'll clean up the studio a little and start two new projects--both are calling me hard so both get started today!
