Grape Jam

First Pickings..
The grapes have been picked from one vine and the jam made.. Not a lot of grapes about a 2 lbs.
I love home made jam , but, the tedium of plucking the grapes from the bunch.. The end result is worth every little grape..
not a very good pic..
Can't wait to road test it... :))
Here is the recipe my mum used .. By the way it is in old measurements.
6lbs of grapes.
juice of a couple of lemons.
4lbs Sugar...
Hope you are enjoying a crafty day :))
As always .. thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment, you know I love to receive them :))

Slow week for craft.

Today it is raining in the North of Tas.. A great day for the garden , no watering needed for the vegie patch, but I can crochet to my little hearts content... :))            

Two more coffee mug holders for my Grandchildren  Dee and Jay ( who love everything their granny makes) ..
Cute mug..

I am up to 60 squares for the Crochet a Rainbow and loving every moment of it..

Badges by Jane. P.I.F.
This week has been one of , preserving, and freezing.. 15 jars of peaches and a few bags of beans for freezing.
How lucky are we in our little garden, to have such wonderful produce.

I can see the grapes are starting to get colour in them, and it wont be long before the jam pan comes out for the making of grape jam.. Oh yes I can smell it now... :))

That's it from me for this week, lets hope there is more crocheting and crafting next week..
Thanks for stopping by.. stay safe:))

Crochet a Rainbow..

This is a sample of the squares made for the flood victims in Aus.. They will be sent to Sarah London along with many, many squares that are being made by busy crocheters, for Sarah to make into blankets..
I have seen a few pics on blogs and have been thrilled at the number so far..
Australia Post has also created stamps of the flood and $2.00 from the sale of each sheetlet will go directly to the Premiers Flood appeal .. You can read and see some of the granny squares that are arriving over at Sarah's blog.

My thoughts and Prayers are with the ppl of Queensland as it gets ready yet again for a Cyclone to hit the coast ..
