Sunny Sunday in Seattle

As I have been known to whine about our weather, I must also comment when it is simply georgous and it has been for the past several days. Friday evening was picnic supper at a nearby park, on Lake Washington.

Yesterday I tried my hand at Stack and Whack. Really a straight-forward concept, requiring some precision in pinning and cutting, but beyond that - "piece of cake". There were 6 of us, so we got a lot of the instructor's time and attention.

While we had such a slow start to spring, all the spring fruit has been a bit late to come in, but the strawberries are here, now! Yeah! --- thus what was required? Freezer jam!

I think I see toast for breakfast in my future. Life is tasty!

Oh the strawberries - we had our first batch of local ones this weekend too - cut up and dripping over good vanilla ice cream - ain't life grand?

Oh that jam looks yummy!
Thank you for the kind comments on my blog. The stack and wack look great fun to do - I've only heard of it and seeing your work makes me very curious to give it a try one day!

Passionate Quilter said... are so lucky!! I completely missed our strawberry season--and I was only gone for 7 days! Store bought strawberries just don't cut it. I can smell them from here! :)
love the S&W blocks--but where are yours? I couldn't find any that matched your fabric? :)
