We made our first trip of the season to the orchard today. Not a lot happening there yet but I did manage to score some fresh green beans and these blackberries.
Aren't they huge?! And seedless too. :o) I just pulled a big ole cobbler out of the oven and can hardly wait to dig in.
When we arrived home I checked the mail and was thrilled to see a package from Lois. I sent her one of the boxes for the BBD Stitchers Companion and she sent me all this in return.
A wonderfully cute sheep magnet from Dublin, a gorgeous crocheted brooch (I wish you could really see the lovely button in the center), a wonderful Tra La La Sampler pattern, and the most fabulous Irish Quilt Magazine. (Shhh, don't tell but there is a recipe in there for Chocolate Truffles that uses Bailey's Irish Cream!) Thank you so much Lois as I just love it all and it tickles me pink that it is all from Ireland. :o)
There was another package in my box from my dear friend Norma. Norma is a wonderful artist and I always know when I see a package from her it will be something she made and a one of a kind original.
On the stitching front I have been steadily stitching on the Mystery Sampler. I should finish up the floral border tonight and will only have the straight cross stitch borders to finish before part 2 arrives later this week. I love what I have seen in the sneak peek of part 2. :o)
Off to grab some of that cobbler now. Happy Hump Day everyone!
