Today the PYO strawberry fields are open for the season.
We ran out of strawberry jam in the middle of the winter, and I am determined that the same won't happen this coming winter. I told the girls, "rain or shine" we were going berry picking today.
The rain held off just long enough for us to pick twenty-six pounds of strawberries.
We'll go back for more ... a LOT more.
But it was a good time.
After berry picking, we came home and I took this dress (we found at Goodwill, and of which I failed to take a picture) cut off the bottom and used the top (after I trimmed a bit from each side) to make a dress for Big Little Sister. Then, I cut the bottom half in half (it was pretty wide at the bottom) and made two more dresses.
The end result is three recital dresses for my girls for the Father-Daughter dance.
And then, we experimented with making oil lamps, but I let Deus Ex Machina share that cool experience ;).
