..and headed for the local raspberry patch! Just down the road from where we live is a U-Pick Berries…love going here! Tons of berries but in between the rows are weeds…and I have this ‘thing’ about snakes! YIKES!! I DO NOT LIKE THEM!! Here on Vancouver Island we have tons of snakes but none are poisonous…just little garter snakes…but I still don’t like them! Hence the boots! With my boots on I am invincible…I am WOMAN…and will kick any snake in the …tail!
Doesn’t it look like these boots have attitude?!
The bushes were loaded…the sun was shining…a perfect day for berry picking!
AND I had on my boots!
Aren’t they lovely berries…
Those lovely berries turned into this! Yikes! Look at all that sugar…and this is using the ‘LIGHT’ version…!
Yummmm…now to clean up the jars, put on the lids and wait for it to ‘set’ before it goes into the freezer!! There is NOTHING better than freezer jam!
So that’s what I did yesterday…and after making jam I stitched while I watched the Olympics on TV. I find the Olympics way more enjoyable this time round… I think it’s because we know the results when we get up in the morning, so by afternoon we see the process without the stress and nerves.
I have five blocks quilted…cheered on numerous teams and individuals, got teary with several wins or near wins…(I love it when they show the parents out in the stands!!) And I was so proud of the Olympic officials for being brave enough to set the bar even higher…regarding the ladies badminton teams!! (What were those teams THINKING?!!)
Yup…and I should get a medal for quilting this heavy wool quilt on a hot summer night!
Have a Fantastic Friday and Happy Quilting!~P
