In the past month, I've...
...spent my time urban foraging for enough mulberries to make jam later in the season. They are a bit of a pain to pick and are messy as anything, but so sweet and delicious that it's totally worth it.
...gone on a ladies weekend with some dear friends and found some quilty inspiration as I stared at the ceiling of the steam room for a [glorious] hour or so. It's not easy to take a photo in a very dark and very steamy room, but this image is seared in my head and I hope to be able to translate it to fabric sooner rather than later.
...been working diligently to keep my dastardly neighborhood squirrels out of my garden. I have new snap peas that are showing up and my blueberries are starting to ripen, but I am fighting a very uphill battle to keep my goodies out of the paws of the wildlife.
...finished up a commissioned quilt. I made a quilt very similar to this one a few years back and was asked if I could recreate it with brown centers for a soon-to-arrive little boy. I don't think I'll ever tire of HST quilts.
...participated in the LAMQG Earth Day market bag swap. I made this Jane Market Bag (which is an awesome pattern and a very versatile finished product). I used the new Lisette popsicle print, which I am totally smitten with. I paired it with some pink handles and a brown selvage pocket. It now lives with Missy - I hope she enjoys it!
I do hope to get a better handle on blogging, especially since I still have lots more percolating in my sewing room and because next week is the Kids Clothes Week Challenge over at Elsie Marley.
