Yesterday Dave peeked his head into my studio and saw that I had fabric all over the place. “Oh, you’re organizing again, aren’t you?” He claims I do this every few months, but I really it’s not that often. It only seems that way since my studio is always a mess! I’ve been wanting to…

Blackberry Cobbler

[donotprint] Well, it’s been pretty busy here at Happy Acres. One of my projects is to get the asparagus patch ready.
