My daughter Kayla (from Kayla K’s Thrifty Ways) came home for a visit and I put her to work. I welcome any visitors this time of year but I’ll warn anyone…if you come, you work. There is just so much work to be done in the garden and I’m not good at taking time off to just sip a pop and chat.
Yesterday was was Peach jam day….
Aren’t those little gingham topped jars the cutest?!? They were a Wal-Mart clearance goodie last fall. I just love them.
If you were ever wondering a case of peaches will make 55 half pints of peach jam. Here’s the recipe we used. We made some strawberry-rhubarb jam too.
Today is another company filled day. My sister, niece and her kiddos are all coming for a visit…I am putting them to work too…Well not really. We are going to be quilting a couple quilts for my great-nieces. Check back tomorrow and I’ll show you what we were up to.
I want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments about my Moda Bake Shop quilt 1934 Nine Patch.
The winner of the gift certificate from Fat Quarter Shop is #87 Audrey who said, “I’m making my cousin a quilt for her first baby; I’m planning to use Circa 1934 when I can get my hands on some!”
