Cherry season and some pattern testing

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!

I’ve been sewing a bit this week too.

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.
