A surfeit of strawberries prompted a new adventure for me on Thursday……..jam making! Yes, it was the first time I’d tried jam making and have to say I’m very pleased with the results. After chopping and weighing and stirring and watching and testing, I have three little pots of strawberry and apple jam!
With the scones still warm from the oven, I took the arduous three minute drive to Maree’s! Five minutes later……
and Andrea had picked some of her apricots for us to savour; juicy, sweet, juicy, fresh, juicy, flavoursome apricots. And did I mention they were juicy?? I mean dribble-down-the-chin juicy, and so full of flavour…..hmmmm! Nothing like the store ones.
Maree has finished her “Message in a Bottle” quilt top.
Maree fell in love with Irene’s pattern and has made this soooo quickly!
There was lots of other wonderful work being done; another of my Steampunk blocks, Helen’s Kaffe inspired appliqué, a binding for a baby quilt from Mrs Mac,
Andrea’s “Message in a Bottle” block, and Maree’s new quilt, Judy Newman’s “French Market Medallion” (using the Maru template that I designed!).
All too soon it was time to pack up and head home. Why, oh why do these afternoons pass so quickly??!! (And The Golfer and I had another scone each for supper!!)
