Berries n' Skirts

Yesterday was a glorious day! Our local farmers' market is open on Saturdays, so after walking Barker, we all got in the car and went to see what seasonable goodies we could bring home. There was so much to choose from, and of course I wanted it all: green beans, yellow squash, okra, peaches, tomatoes and yummy blueberries. I had a recipe for Finnish Blueberry Squares (hope my Swedish family won't be offended!) that I wanted to try, so yesterday afternoon I got busy, armed with several quarts of big, fat, juicy fresh berries. Here's the result:

The squares are so yummy, and you can find the recipe here.

I put the finishing touches on my layered Barcelona skirt the other day, and wore it to church this morning:

This is an Amy Butler pattern and I used a rayon twill that I dyed and discharged. I love the hand of the fabric and the pattern is easy as pie. I serged the bottoms of all of the layers so that the twill wouldn't ravel quite so much.

This is my favorite skirt picture:

Hey Judy, lovely skirt, handsome Barker. Really, the skirt is stunning, I'm sick of telling you how clever you are, but really, you are... Your blueberry squares look delicious - isn't it wonderful that we can go to farmers' markets these days. XXOO
