This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

Making Freezer Jam..........

So Edna and I went down to the Pigpatch down near Custer (Michigan) We were going to the Quilt shop. I did manage to find a couple of things and I also got two dozen eggs. The Pig Patch being a farm and all.

The farm is beautiful and a real working farm. The Quilt shop is in the farm house so one of the nicest......well we love it.

Anyway, just as we turn off to go to the Pig Patch there is a beautiful farm market and that is where I got my Strawberries. I bought a whole bunch. The intent was to make freezer jam. The cleaning was the hard part. Time consuming really is all.

After they were washed and topped and sorted I Froze 1/2 of them. Some for making jam later and some for eating later.

I kept some for eating the next few days, tomorrow I will make some shortcake.

I love the look of them in their jars, so pretty.They are somewhat chunky and that should be nice.

Anyway, it was a bit hot in the kitchen so that was enough for me for oneday. Having run out of pectin it was better to freeze the rest and use up what I had made. Later I will make marmalade and my cranberry jam. When the weather is cooler.
