Wednesday was the perfect day to go blueberry picking. We picked up Nick and Connie and
headed west. After about two hours of picking (they were hanging like grapes on the vine) we had almost 60 pounds of berries between the four of us. They are sooooo good.
Yesterday was my birthday (not a zero) and it was another great day. My folks treated Jim and I to a perch lunch which was delicious. The Tigers beat the Orioles in an afternoon game, I got a birthday charm and discount at my LQS and I bought a little Janome. It's the AQS2009 and I will take it to classes and retreats giving my Featherweight a break from traveling. I love the push a button and watch it sew feature!
While there, I took a picture of the shop sample I just finished sewing. It's called Spinning Flowers by Amy Davidson of Humble Bee Quilt Works.
Added: Terry has a terrific giveaway of patterns and books here.
