Patty!


I have been on a knitting frenzy this weekend, haven't the foggiest idea why though, maybe it's because I can sit on the couch with my hubby instead of being upstairs in the sewing room. I try to do most of my sewing in the daytime hours so we can spend the evenings together, with my knitting I get to create and spend time with him, so it's a win win situation, and that is why little Patty was finished so quickly.What a lovely unexpected surprise I received in the mail on Saturday, my dear friend Cindy sent me two lovely candle holders, some candles and a sweet felt pin. How lucky am I, these little candle holders are just perfect for a backyard barbecue, thank you Cindy you are so very thoughtful.Not far from our home there are at least a gazillion wild blackberry bushes, they are just starting to ripen, there is nothing better than a lovely blackberry pie with whipping cream, I can hardly wait, I hope they don't take to long. Yes, I will probably get scratched by the thorns and have purple fingers for days, but it is oh so worth it!

Hi Kathy, Patty is so adorable especially in her knitted outfit! It's just lovely to receive goodies in the mail isn't it? It makes any day better. I've shared an award with you over at my little place, stop by and have a look see.
Hugs,

Yum yum! I love blackberry cobbler! I took my kids to pick them one year and they gave up after that... too many thorns!!! You should have them soon as we already have had them here. And your gifts are so sweet! Tell Patty that I absolutely love her little yellow outfit and she's welcome here any time!!! I should pull my knitting out tonight while my husband watches the Olympics!
