A blog to talk about quilting and raising a daughter, which I do in equal measure. I'll also talk a little about gardening, a little about cooking, and share a few pleasant memories. Hope you enjoy it.
I can do just about anything
Sydney and I made Jelly this weekend. Before class on Saturday, I took a gallon and a half of Mayhaws and turned them into juice. Mayhaws are little fruits that look like a crabapple, but taste like a berry. And, when you mix them with enough sugar, you get a wonderful jelly.
These are the berries that my dad picked up from his trees while I was there weekend before last. His trees are loaded and I was willing to take all that he would give me. I washed them a couple of times to get the grit and grass and leaves out of them.
And, then I boiled them in my big pot with water and drained the juice off and then mashed and boiled them again.
And, then on Sunday, Sydney and I ended up with a bunch of jars of wonderful Jelly. She and I have been enjoying it every morning for breakfast.
I know that men think and talk about things diffferently. Christine pointed it out in a blog not long ago. But, I can't think of any other way to say it. The second border on the red silk quilt kicks major butt.
Unfortunately, I can do just about anything. I think of myself as a renaissance man. But, I'm having a heck of a time trying to make this stupid blog post. I don't know what I could possibly be doing wrong in trying to reorder my pictures and get text between them. But, this has been the most frustrating half hour. And, it did not need to be!!! I'm pretty upset with google right now.
