I freeze a large portion of these little fruits to use in my smoothies, my pies and muffins all winter long.
I made three batches of strawberry jams last week. One freezer stawberry jam with rhubarb for me. One regular cooked strawberry jam for hubby. And one new recipe of strawberry jam with Ammereto...looking forward to trying that one out! I will give most of this batch as Christmas gifts.
I have added a new baby hat to my Etsy shop. I call it Blueberry Hat!
Enjoy your day, it is finally sunny here!

Kerry of Etsy Studios has featured my Etsy shop on her blog! What a wonderful thing!
Go have a look and while you are at it, I recommend that you take the time to read her other features. It's always great to discover other people's talents and passions.

I have relisted the hat since I still have two other ones available.
And to add to my joy, I have a shop here in town that will be selling my hats. How cool is that?I have also just added this red apple hat:
This hat has actually been knitted using my red reclaimed yarns. I sell some of these yarns in my Etsy shop. For those of you that hesitate to knit with recycled (reclaimed) yarns, see for yourself the beautiful knits you can get from it!
This little hat is also available in two sizes (infant and toddler).
I am currently working on a flower hat. I'll post pics as soon as it's done!
Have a great day. And do leave me a comment if you come by to read me. I would love to hear from you!

She will have all four legs hangning on either side of the plank and just be.
She watches the dogs below and the birds in the apple tree. Pretty cool, eh?

The colors in this Fleece artist yarn kit really won me over! Very soft turquoises and greens.
The pattern is called Celtic Cardigan by Fleece Artist (from Nova Scotia).
It took me awhile to figure out the instructions given on the tiny card that came with the yarn. I guess that when you try to fit a cardigan pattern on such a small card, you take for granted that your knitters will have some experience and some strong desire to decipher the pattern on their own. I read it several times and all of a sudden it was as clear as spring water!
The pattern is such that it is completely reversible. It uses two balls of yarn at the same time in order to eliminate all possibilities of colour pooling.
