a little help, if you please: raspberry recipes

Here’s the deal.

I fully expect to be swimming in raspberries by the end of next week. And while I love a handful of fresh raspberries as much (or more!) than the next gal, let’s just say I’m needing some ideas.

Do you have some good raspberry recipes?

Would you please, please, share?

You’ll be my favorite.

Mwa!

Monkeying around (or How to Make a Sock Monkey)

Get a pair of knee socks with contrasting toes and heels.

Follow this tutorial. (But use a zig sag stitch when machine sewing. Trust me on this.)

Make a couple more.

Bask in the praise of rejoicing children. Then, brace yourself for the meltdown when you tell them you’re giving them away. (Ask me how I know.)

No, seriously, I made a few of these…BIG hit. And of course, why wouldn’t they be? They’re adorable, if I do say so myself, and a GREAT idea for birthday party gifts. I threw these together in under 2 hours a piece, and that was with major three-year-old distractions. Just grab up some knee socks when you see them and have them on hand.

What is your go-to birthday gift? I need ideas, because as cute as these are, I’m not sure I can give them for every birthday from here on out. Enlighten me!



With love.

Made this for my sweet friend this past week, she lost her mother to cancer.

And even though I know a little wall hanging won’t fix anything, I sure hope it reminds her that there are a whole lot of people who love her.


Including me.



Spring Cleaning: Precut Sale!

I know, technically it’s nearly summer.

Tell that to the crazy weather around here.

At any rate, late or no, the spring cleaning is happening. Especially in my studio, where the fallout from quilt market is still evident. The most exciting part? I’m putting quite a few precuts in my shop that are pretty much impossible to find these days (Pure? Bliss? Yep, I’ve got them), at the prices they were before all this cotton price craziness. I’ve been holding on to them, but let’s face it. There’s just not enough room to keep it all.

Lucky you guys!

So check out the newcomers to the shop, and if you see something you must have, snatch it up. Several of these I only have a few of. I’ll be adding more throughout the day as I find them.

Mwa!

PS  Sent off a mystery package last week, so nice to be done! I can’t wait to show you later this fall.

PPS Off to the swimming park with the goobers. Should be exhausting, in a good way.
