I’ve been working on this thingy-majig for the last couple of evenings. I saw one on Ravelry and followed the pattern link…Lo & Behold, I had the magazine with the pattern in it. So I dug it out, which was pretty easy because I had just organized my Crochet Mags last weekend. I picked out some yarn, and the rest is history. Didn’t it turn out cute? I think it’s kind of bulky for my taste, so I plan on making another one with sport or dk-weight yarn. In fact, I think I have some green baby yarn that would be good for me with my coloring and reddish hair. But I digress.

The Strawberry Shortcake
It was Marvelous!
My secret? What do you mean? I don’t have a secret!
Oh wait…yes I do.
Shhhh! Don’t tell…
I added a splash of orange liqueur to the strawberries and sugar before I let them sit in the fridge to get all syrupy. That’s just between us girls now. I used my Paula’s Texas Orange, but you can use any kind of orange liqueur you want. Grand Marnier or Cointreau are popular brands that would work too.
