yesterday we went blackberry picking just outside of town. it was the first time i'd ever been berry picking, and it was fun and delicious work! and also painful! blackberry bushes are very viney with lots and lots of thorns, that are always trying to grab you and scratch you all over.
we picked approximately a million berries, and plan to make a couple pies and some scones from this recipe, and just eat some plain and as toppings for yogurt and icecream too.
on a sewing sidenote: i took in this old dress for the occasion. it's a vintage dress i've had for quite a while, (and i didn't get a before picture), but i just took up the waist, and the hem. so now i have the blackberry dress to add to my list of sewing accomplishments!
