JUSTICE OF THE PIECE...


Wow, today is a stellar day with sunshine and blue skies and lots of mosquitoes and bumblebees.  The flowering crab in in full bloom and the birds are happily singing.

I'v been hooking on my rug and didn't had the right shade of mottled green so what's a hooker to do?
I married some green worms.  You don't even need a licence to do this.

 For those who have no idea what marrying wool worms is, let me briefly explain. You put  leftover presoaked  wool strips of assorted shades or color together and process them in a simmering bath of water and  add vinegar to set the color in and simmer some more and let cool until all the colored water is absorbed in the wool. Rinse and dry and it's ready to use.

I didn't take a photo of the married wool worms after I hooked them but I'll try to show you in another post. I'm rushing to get to the farm chores.

I triedMaggie's Peach cobbler's recipe and had a taste just now and it's a recipe that Ill make again for sure, it's that good.  I didn't had blackberries but I used can peaces that I cut up. I sprinkles a tiny bit of the sugar on top. It didn't needed any as it was sweet enough.  Thanks Maggie of Grandma Yellow Hair.    JUST BETWEEN YOU AND ME blog.

Have a safe weekend. JB
