My cup and saucer pincushion that is very slowly taking shape (this is for me :) )
A sneak peak on a slightly blurry scale of the heart I'm making for the Valentine Initial Heart Swap which is now well on track thanks to the FNSI
But I should tell you, that I might have got alot more done if I'd finished all of this a bit earlier.......
Yep, but it's that time of year, so the apricots and Plums needed to go into pots, and jars had to be sterilized in order to stock our pantry with some yummy jam for the upcoming year ahead.This lot will go into the stock pantry along with the other batches I have stored in there. I try to get enough together to last a year and have a bit for gifting here and there or to elderly neighbours and such or the odd bartering also works well. We could use a bit more Strawberry Jam though! Now in our pantry I have 15 Plum, 20 Apricot and 3 Strawberry. Lemon Butter gets made as we go since it doesn't keep so well. There's nothing like home made produce........ both food and our handiworks.
