Some of the Future Groups that Delphine's has on order!
The Journey Home will be arriving soon from Northcott, Pressed Flowers, (purple quilt pictured) is not expected until March and Farm to Table from Robert Kaufman (pictured as a Fat Quarter bundle) is due in November.
In light of the recent traumatic events that have unfolded at former Residential Schools across Canada, Karen Erickson created 'Every Child Matters' out of reverence to those grieving. This painting depicts two siblings who were finally set free after being grimly discovered at a Residential School.
The children who are shown holding hands were torn apart from each other, but now reunited as they make their way back home. Karen included beautiful imagery such as a moon and feathers to represent the First Nations, Inuit and Metis people joining together to guide the two siblings home.
Northcott is donating 100% of the net proceeds from the sales of the panel to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society and the Orange Shirt Society. For more information on these charities, please visit www.irsss.ca and www.orangeshirtday.org

Recipe of the Month - Delphine recently made this with blackberries from her yard and blueberries that were picked at UpNorth Blueberry Patch. Next time it will be raspberries!
1 quart berries (fresh or frozen)
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons lemon
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Place berries and other ingredients into a heavy pan and heat, on medium, to a steady simmer.
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Mix the above ingredients together and place in a food processor with 6 tablespoons unsalted cold butter. Process until the mixture resembles coarse sand and transfer to a bowl.
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Whisk the liquid ingredients together and stir into the flour mixture. It will be stiff.
Turn the heat on the berries down to low. Carefully drop dough, 1 tablespoon at a time, into the hot berry mixture, covering the surface. Place lid on and simmer on low for 10 to 12 minutes. Open lid and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar mixed with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon over the top. Let cool slightly and scoop all the way to the bottom of the pan to serve. Whipped cream or ice cream is great but not needed.
