It's Berry Season!

Strawberries from my garden

Is everyone enjoying the summer?  I hope you fared well during the heat wave we experienced recently.  Poor little Lil got heat stroke.  It was 40 degrees celsius in our house on June 28th!

I am loving the strawberries this year.  I always grow a few in my garden, but there are never enough, so I frequent Galey Farms here on the Peninsula.  I can't get enough of them.  I enjoy them on my granola, in a smoothie, as a topper on pancakes, shortcake with cream, or my favorite: Strawberry Rhubarb Pie.

I just started working on a new Strawberry embroidery kit.  This year some of my strawberries had pink flowers, so I'll depict them in the kit,  It is a small 4" design that would be perfect for a card, a needlecase, or to hang on the wall in the kitchen.  The kit will be available for purchase soon.
