Simple Simon and a Handful of Hearts

Remember that nursery rhyme 'Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair...'? Well, blueberries are in season, and after a few recent rains they have come on like gangbusters so Anne and I did our best pieman imitations and had a pie-making session.

I did the pastry and she did the filling (she had found mom's recipe and was keen to give it a try) and in a couple of hours we had eight pies in the freezer ready to be enjoyed this winter. Anne also picked all of the berries so I got off easy.

The farm where we pick is expecting to have berries for at least another month so maybe I'll make a couple more and share them around.

Sunday's slow stitching was really productive. I often start with great plans and then get totally side tracked but I got nine little heart decos stitched together and then finished the last three off last night. I think I'll prep another batch so that they are ready to go when I am. Who knows, I might even be a little ahead of the game for this year's Holly Bazaar!....M

The blueberry pie will be yummy and delightful when the snow begins to blow.
