Cherries and a Winner!

Every year my other half has an extravagant indulgence. He orders 2 kg of Tasmanian cherries and they arrived at our door yesterday morning. We are not extravagant people (quite the opposite) by any means but this is a little gift to ourselves each new Year.
Oh what a treat it is.....
They are so sweet and delicious and HUGE.
Speaking of fruit. I have all the borders on my strawberry quilt.
So backing, batting and into the quilting hoop are next on the agenda and then I'm afraid you will have to wait until later in the year to see the end result. I have to say I am quite pleased with the result.
WINNER: The winner in my little blog anniversary giveaway is..............
LESLEY from Cuddle Quilter!!!!!! Congratulations Lesley. If you could email me your snail mail address I shall send off your little win. Thank you everyone for taking part.
Today is our first stitching group catch up and as always can't wait to see the girls. I am sure "the jaw will be sore". We are expecting the higher temperatures that the southern states have been experiencing so not looking forward to that. Being with friends will help I am sure.
Do something kind for yourself today and treat yourself as your very best friend.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  15. Those cherries are an indulgence that we treat ourselves to as well. Our cherries have such a short season that we choose to enjoy them as much as we can. Congratulations to Lesley on her lucky win.

  24. I'm slobbering just looking at those cherries.

    We have to eat by season here in France, which is good for the French economy and the farmers, but sometimes I really long to eat a cherry or strawberry in December.
