Been a slow week here..at least for me.
Knees are still being slow.
Wed, DH had his test and we come home very tired, me from waiting, him from drugs…;-)
Still have our wacky weather… hot, cool, wind, rain, rain, rain…thunder& lightening rain, rain, rain.
DH started cutting grass yesterday evening but storms came in so had to stop.
Right now rain gauge is at over 3 inches.
Yes we needed rain but hey we need it spread out more!
Sadly yes we are picky like that! Haaa!
More storms today and tomorrow so the weather folks say.
Sun is in and out and not real warm yet.
Back to a HOT sizzle tomorrow then back done in 70’s for Sunday and beginning of week.
Also having Internet server troubles.UGH!
Cannot stay connected long, takes forever to load up pages as in my blog or yours to post a comment!
Same with my email so if I do not get right back to you please do not think I am being rude.
Called them yesterday and they have yet to get back to me.
Strawberry season is here!! YES!
Always can time it right at or right after Mom’s Day!
We will get a bucket full to eat fresh along and put some in freezer.
May do a few ½ pint jars of jam as well.
Above is some wool strawberry pin keeps I made.
I still want to add a few small black beds to them.
Love ‘em!!! Added one to a Giveaway I did a few months back.
I also made a strawberry/watermelon purse last year so need to dig that out to use for a bit!!
Check out this site for Strawberry recipes , tips and such on the fruit!

To do you a RED WORK berry, just draw out one on some tone on tone cotton or tea dyed muslin, ( I use a red thin pen) back with a thin pc of batting or just use double fabric, then use a shade of red DMC or cotton thread you like go to it…;-)
Lots of coloring pages online you could use for the outlines just do a search for strawberry coloring pages.
