We picked lots of juicy strawberries and ate a few in the field (oops!) Today we made Strawberry jam. I froze lots last year and the children would not eat them claiming them to be too soggy, which they were but I thought flavour would win out but it didn't.
So I thought that jam is the best way to savour the taste of summer for the winter months.
|We used 2kg of fruit and made 9 jars.|
I started it, then mum borrowed the book to do a project for herself and I put it on the back burner with my commissions to make.
|She made this beautifully. I know, look at the back isn't it wonderful?|
I am on my fourth attempt patiently balancing the pattern on my knee and not taking anything to chance.
That is what happens when you leap from craft to craft, project to project - I won't learn my lesson, it's the way I do stuff. I have a half made 1967 shift dress, a small felt dressed rabbit and a border for a hexagon blanket on the go at the moment. Now concentrate Jo, armhole shapings next.
Happy sunshine Jo x
