Are in season!!! Custard apples aren’t so pretty, but they also taste damn good and I’m grateful to have them, too. Would you like to hear a story about mangoes? Of course you would.
When I met the Masculine Quilt Advisor,* and it seemed as if we were hitting it off, he asked me a question:
“Do you like mangoes? This is very important.”
I had been living in France and had missed the whole Australian season, so the subject was dear to my heart just then. After I subjected the poor guy to a lengthy rant on why do the French import only those horrible big cannonball mangoes that taste like turpentine, and what’s wrong with a glorious squishy little Kensington Pride, but those long ones that go into Vietnamese green mango salad are great too … well, yes. Mangoes have been good to me. Yay, mangoes.
Thanks for listening. I haven’t stopped sewing, although I’m sure it seems that way recently. I’m finishing a huge two-quilt project and trying to write a tutorial. Details by Sunday, promise.
*I just asked him if it was OK to blog about this, and he says, yes, and maybe I should just call him Dan. Blog, meet Dan, Dan, meet blog. And yes, I am aware that we are collectively DananAnne.
