blueberries & bunnies

Hans brought home a gallon of local blueberries the other day...so we've been a bit blueberry mad around here. I'm ready for summer to be over, but I will miss the fresh blueberries!

More Lumpling pillows are popping up around here. The top one has a pocket with a funny little Lumpling hiding inside. The lower picture shows the sketches that I start with before making them into fabric appliques. Last night I began some more patchwork pillows, so we'll have more of those soon!

Some really lovely fabric came in today that I'm itching to get into, but we are off to a sweet little girl's birthday party! So everything will have to wait! Finn and Ella get positively buzzed when there is a birthday party to attend and they've been bouncing off the walls today. I distracted them by making crayon cupcakes today (thanks to Kiddley for the idea!). I'll post pictures of our success tomorrow. My thumbs hurt from peeling crayon paper.

We did a simple blueberry cobbler tonight from the wonderful fresh blueberries that my parents gathered. I will miss them, too. I think next week I will get more and try to freeze some for later.

the lumpling is adorable!! And those lazy summer blueberries look yummy! I went blueberry picking last weekend and had them coming out my ears. :) Thanks for the great recipe.

I made the blueberry crumble and it was excellent. I think it would be wonderful cold, but I will probably never have it that way as my family ate it all while warm. Have you tried this with other fruits or berries? My husband thought it would be great with cherries and my daughter was wondering what it would be like with apples
