I have finished it!
My first ever granny square blanket...
With fancy edge and all :)
for me from hubby...just because :)
The tree loppers are in town, so hubby rounded them up to get some mulch for our yard.
$100 got us this much...
A new toy for me...
(again from hubby, a bit spoilt I think)
bargain at 1/2 price
now I just need some spare time to play...
Have picked some figs...
these are white ones
The recipe is one my mum uses,
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup vinegar
Make syrup from sugar, water and vinegar by heating together then add the fruit. Cook for approx 3 hours or until the jam sets on a cold saucer. (I cooked mine for 5hrs) Place in sterilised jars while still hot.
Apparently the vinegar helps to preserve it longer.
And a very enjoyable Australia Day lunch
of Blue Swimmer Crabs....YUM!
Things have been very busy around here, catching up on jobs that haven't been done since the start of the Summer holidays, and a little craft happening too, that is while it is cool. We had a run of hot humid weather for over a week, I did not like it at all. Sitting in a puddle of sweat is no fun!
What have you been up to?
