My son's favourite summer fruit are plums. They are plentiful at the moment, so a big batch of plum jam was the order of the day. That way we can enjoy the fruit all year long (if it lasts that long!)
My local supermarket has stopped selling my favourite French Jam - Bonne Maman. I used to buy it for the sweet jars with the red checkered lids, as much as for the delicious jam. Fortunately I have a big stash of jars that I can use in my own jam making.
I used the recipe I found here. I am going to surprise the kids with waffles and jam after school - perfect for a Friday afternoon tea.
Orphan blocks from the Joseph Coat Quilt-A-Long have been incorporated into the backing of the Red String Quilt. I love how the backing is turning out and hope to start the quilting this weekend.
I am also finding ways to incorporate Japanese Masking Tape into lots of projects. So much so, that I am thinking of adding to my collection. They are available from Notemaker in Australia for around $4.95 ea. I think resistance is futile.
Have a great weekend!
