am I then bought some more expensive ones large and suitable for bottling, over preserved them so instead of cute apricots I have stewed apricots in jars.. I am eagerly awaiting the peach season, over here the peaches to preserve are Golden Queens and not due til late Feb/march..Oh the wait when I am so keen to bottle something - I may have to buy some over priced big plums I saw at the supermarket for 3.00 per kg just to give me something to satisfy the hunting/gathering thing!
Rhonda from this bloghttp://www.down...to...earth.blogspot.com/ tagged me for seven random things. Unfortunately I cant tag seven others yet as my computer is having a major seizure and I cant seem to link press the right click and when I attempt to get it to do something complex it freezes. So I will do it when my computer is fixed . In the meantime three random things about me:
I love the idea of the Prairie life
I realise life back then would completely kill me early
I really want to make some bonnets from the Priairie days and am investigating patterns, these would look grand hanging up on a native rustic coat holder
Part of me thinks I might take to wearing said bonnets around the place
Ive only been quilting seriously for a year
I love the Prim look
and I never knew what the meaning of my life was until I held my first baby and realised it was to be a mother!!
Goodness half way through this post my photos suddenly appeared !!! Yah All are self explanatry except my front door Amercian Annie that designed myself after a pattern I used for something else. I love Annies and she is on the front door in lieu of the usual handmade wreath I seasonally decorate.
There is a sneak peak of Georgias quilt.
I have also made my first ever dog biscuits. Recipe found here:http://www.down...to...earth...blogspot.com/ Our dog loves them and as I had all the ingrediants in my pantry (and thrust me, after Christmas I dont have all that much!) they were very cheap. The frugal life ploughs on. I turn to frugal blogs and Simple savings website to gain ever increasing insite into increasing frugality and gaining lost ground. I have added more blogs to my links. These are either crafty or frugal.
