It’s cherry time at our place. Our tree keeps on giving and giving. This was tonight’s haul. You can’t really tell from the photograph, but this bowl is a massive caterer’s bowl. I think I’ll be handing out cherries to everyone I see for the next week or so!
Despite my best neglect, the garden is holding itself together.
We have raspberries, boysenberries and blackberries on their way.
I’ve been sewing a bit this week too.
Kristie at Boo! Designs put out a call for people to re-test her new and improved shirred dress pattern. As a part of the testing process, I received a free copy of the new pattern (which is due for release in the next week or so).
I have enjoyed sewing this pattern. Elena loves it too.
It can be fiddly convincing your machine to shirr. I was worried because Brother sewing machines are notorious for problematic shirring. Luckily enough for me, my machine was compliant and I didn’t have too many problems.
So far I’ve sewn the tunic and dress variations, with flutter and fixed straps.
There’s not a lot to say – an easy sew with great results! If I do say so myself. Apologies for the photo overload…
Wow, all those cherries! What a treat! The dress and top are so cute!
