When summer comes to Michigan, things happen fast! My lavender bloomed a bit early of which I quickly picked for drying.
🍓Local strawberries were in season. If one blinks, they ripen and are gone. They are the sweetest and juiciest berries. So much so they are not available in a grocery store as they are too delicate for shipping. For a few short couple of weeks, they can be found at farmer’s stands - if they haven’t sold out for the day. Lucky for me there is an orchard nearby that has a strawberry patch for U-Pick which is what we did. Eat while you pick is perfectly acceptable ~ in fact almost required.
While proceeding at my normal slow stitching pace a few stitches get added to the Augusta needlepoint round.
For today’s Slow Sunday Stitching by Kathy, I’ll be hand stitching a homemade pillow form closed. Take care!
