Sewing in the summer is hard . . there is so much else to do . . .we've been berry picking, which resulted in two jam making nights in a row . . we tried a new (but old) method of pectin-free, low sugar jam. It worked out pretty well, although you do get far fewer jars of jam as it's really more of a concentrated fruit reduction. But it's summer in a jar, and you can't beat that. I found the recipes over here, if you're interested. We made strawberry and cherry blueberry.
But back to the string quilt . .
... I think I might be falling in love.
My husband's only comment thus far, when I force him to look at it is "it's colourful." And that it is. Which is why I think i love it. I love that it's perfectly imperfect, and that it's helping me to clean out the fabric cupboard. I love that there are so many of my very favourite prints in it. And most of all, I love that it's relatively mindless sewing at this point. Perfect for those lazy days of summer.
I wanted to give a shout out to Christina over at the Sometimes Crafter, too. If you haven't been over to her blog, please stop by for a visit . .if you're here via her blog, welcome! We hope you'll come again!
Happy weekend, everyone!
