On my birthday, I picked about a gallon of blueberries for $5.20!! It was my first “u-pick” experience. I want to go back and pick more, but I’m quickly running out of freezer space what with all the raspberries as well (not u-picked but very fresh!). I would love to be able to eat frozen berries through fall, winter, and spring, but I’m afraid that I don’t have the capacity for it. I tried convincing Donnie that buying a deep freeze for our rented garage would be a wise investment. But the number don’t exactly work out.
A few months ago, I bought a baby quilt starter bundle called “Bubble Bath” that had all the material with instructions. It was on clearance for only $12. I used a friend’s mat and rotary cutter to cut the pieces and then I spent Saturday evening from about 4-10 sewing it together using my friend Sarah’s machine (whose instruction manual I read through very thoroughly). Unfortunately, the seams aren’t very straight, which didn’t seem like that big of a deal when initially sewing each row. But once I sewed them all together, the discrepancies are quite apparent. Oops!
And then yesterday, I bought some white and blue embroidery thread ($0.29 each!!) and tied it off! I’m very proud of myself 🙂
