Strawberry Season!

When I was at the grocery story last Friday, I picked up two boxes of strawberries. It's the season for California strawberries and they are just perfect right now! I've been enjoying them at lunch each day. Each time I eat one, I am reminded that I promised I'd share a tutorial for my strawberry pincushion set.
 

I made this set for my swap partner, and I shared what I received, and what I sent, in this post. I noted that at the end of May, I'd do a tutorial when I celebrated my blogging anniversary.  Well, May is over and it's the start of June and all things summery! I'll be serving up the tutorial for the strawberry pincushion tomorrow, June 2. And on Friday, June 3, I'll share a tutorial for the needlecase. And on each of those days there will be a little giveaway. Today, though, I'll be working in my "fabric strawberry patch" and preparing the tutorials. And while I'm working, I'm thinking of another giveaway that is really crazy but I think someone might really like it. Gotta get to work now..........

Did it say where in CA the berries are from? They have been delicious this year.

The strawberry pincushion and needle case are darling.
