Jam and Stuff

Hello People, it seems like ages since I last posted, I have been busy making jam and stuff, I have made Damson Jam and Damson Vodka, Strawberry Jam, Apricot Brandy and Sloe Gin, we have also been busy in the garden trying to get it ready for winter.

Kathleen will be home on Sunday I am hoping she has had a wonderful time on her cruise and has worn all the lovely clothes she bought, I have been around to her house several times to check the fish.

I have finished a quilt for a widow who wanted one made from her husbands shirts, I managed to make her two quilts a full bed size and a Lap size, she was so tearful when she saw them but happy too. Kate has asked me to make some bunting for her babies bedroom, he is not due until January 3rd so I have time I also want to make him a quilt and I saw a lovely quilted sleeping bag in Mama's and Papa's today which looks so easy to make but was £50 so I am going to have a go at making one in my own choice of fabrics.

Tony and I went to Birmingham today, they had an antiques market in the streets around the Bull Ring shopping centre there were some lovely things. I am now going to make dinner we bought some lovely Hake in the fish market in Birmingham.

What a lovely thought to make the quilt from his shirts. I'm sure she was thrilled. Do you have a photo?
