Its berry time!

I spent last week canning Blackberry and Raspberry Jam!!!

I had to make some fresh bread to go with it and try it all out... Yummy!!!

I picked up Drama Queen from the airport yesterday, She spent the whole summer at her grandparents house in Maine, I know she is glad to be home but misses them too.
So we are going to venture out to the mining claim this weekend and find a little gold and relax a little too. I am bringing this to work on....

My Vintage Christmas block 1 by Bunny Hill and my Tail Feathers by Cinderberry
I hope to have both block 1's done this weekend.
Happy Sewing Everyone!!

Socks I am knitting!

Judy over at Patchwork Times is having a sock yarn giveaway So I am showing off my socks in progress...
this one is going to be a pair for my mom.. she picked out the yarn and its not really what I knit with but she liked it so I am making them for her. The yarn is toufotsie and its coming together pretty fast. I just turned the heel so no more pics of it yet but hopefully I can get them done soon.
I started 2 new BOM programs the other day... The first one is the Vintage Christmas by bunny hill designs Ordered thru The Fat Quarter Shop I am very impressed with this, I recieved the first month block on Monday and its been so easy to applique together.
The Second BOM program that I am doing is by Cinderberry Stitches Tail Feathers Thru Treasured Threads, not so much impressed with this... I love the pattern and Cant wait to make it but I figured when you pay to do a Block of the month they send you the fabric and such to do it. Well I guess I read something wrong there cause all I got was the pattern so after work tonight I will go and hunt down the supplies to make this cute quilt too. I will not let that discourage me.
Well enough of that rant. I am going to do some work and then work on my applique

So go check out Judy's blog and enter to win the wonderful Red Sock yarn that she has posted

Happy Knitting and Sewing
