I know that for some of you think picking dewberries or blackberries is not your idea of fun. But it is mine.
In fact, if I drove you around our property I would probably bore you with what I consider to be my best berry picking spots. If my husband happens to run over my berries with his tractor....well....you can imagine the ear full he gets...
So once I get them picked then I juice them. This part is fun if you like getting your hands messy.
The plums are not ripe on the vine yet but I did find some in the freezer ready to jelly up. I have to tell you that this plum jelly is out of this world good, you can eat it like candy (not that I would.....HA!!)
I did make jelly from the dew berries I picked the other day and jelly from the blackberries frozen from last year.
You might think work...
I think fun....
and when you hear the ping of the lids when you know they sealed....oh yes....
that causes a smile to cross my face each time.
You can tell I do not need a roller coaster ride to get my thrills.
So...here is my "Playful Paper Piece" using Desert Rose Island Batik Fabric.
Laying in my rose bush.
I was hoping to catch the flowers to the left....
This project is Joanna's from the Shape Moth's blog

Now having done that, I have to admit, I am not a fan of paper piecing. I have done one quilt using the paper piecing method and well...that was that.
Thank you Island Batik for allowing me to practice this method again. The Island Batik Ambassadors will be posting at various times during the month about their projects for the month as well.
