There was just a bit of a lull in the canning this week. I used the last of the plums to make plum-raspberry jelly.
I love the color. I may have over-estimated how much jelly I was going to get. I ended up with 14 jars of various sizes, so I think it may be a year or two before I need to make more. I have said before that I'm not much of a jam/jelly person, but this is one that I do like, and will pick it over the honey or plain butter I usually prefer. Next week, however, will start tomatoes. I need to do salsa, and if there are more left out there, I'll do a few pints whole and then ponder whether or not I'm motivated enough to do spaghetti sauce. Ironically, I don't usually use it for spaghetti. I'll put it in soups and stews to flavor them up.
The next red and white block. Thankfully, there weren't a thousand pieces to this block, so it actually turned out pretty well.
And last week's house block. It had a bit of appliqué this time
And what is this, you ask? I stumbled upon a gal who makes seasonal stickers for my specific design of planner. You would think that Christmas came early when these came in the mail. I dropped everything to put them on my October planner pages. It's the little things, people.....
