They're a favourite dessert in our house - fresh strawberries with strawberry yoghurt and vanilla icecream. Sounds like a lot of strawberries at once, but it's not, it's good.
These strawberries came out of our garden.
We had a good crop for a couple of years and it all started from one plant. They just took off and we were eating strawberries for yonks. Then it all went pear-shaped and we, and the garden, have never been the same again.
Might chat to Andrew and see if we can plant another plant and see how it goes. Nothing like fresh produce from the garden.
Strawberries are fun to make - you just take a long shape (mine's a Sakura-A from Carl), trim it slightly (so it's not as pointy at the end), add your leaf (Carl Momiji) and a little cream flower and you're done. Easy.
I've also made strawberries from hearts with green daisies for the leaves...they look nice too.
And now, get a load of these strawberries my mother made for me...
3. It's no surprise I'm an artist. I got my creativeness from her.
6. Back to Mum...she makes a lot of stuff. I received many, many handmade things from her growing up - some were essentials, like clothes. Some were decorative, like curtains. Some were gifts, like crocheted strawberries. Creativeness was a huge part of my life, because it was a huge part of my mum's. I think I took it for granted actually.
7. She makes a lot of good stuff. No dodgy projects here (except for maybe the gold books!).
10. She's self-taught too. I don't think she's ever been to a class in anything, except maybe ceramics to get her started. Grandma (her mother) taught her how to sew and crochet, I think. Grandma is the crochet queen in the family, so I reckon that'd be right. Mothers pass these things to their daughters and hope their daughters pick them up. This daughter didn't pick up everything her mother tried to teach her...
