jam making and gardening (a lovely combination)

A fully packed weekend, need Monday to recover! So here are some photos of my weekend in the lovely warm Kent sunshine. I hope you had some sunshine where you live, sadly its now raining.

Faversham food and crafts on Saturday with Jack, lots of lovely produce and a great selection of hand made gifts.

Sunday, spent almost the entire day gardening but did save time to make strawberry jam and chill jam and a few more rows of my snood, almost done and this one will be added to my Folksy shop. I plan to make another for myself on holiday later in October. I bought a bargain bundle of Cath Kidston yarn on eBay, can't wait to receive it!

I have never tried chili jam, I must look up the recipe. The strawberry jam looks delicious now that along with blackberry is one of my favourites.

Wow your crochet looks wonderful, I love the colours. The jam looks wonderful too! I am never sure with chilli jam whether it is supposed to be sweet or savoury, it always tastes great with cheese! x

It sounds like you had a lovely weekend. Hope Megan's settled in to uni ok if she's already there or she gets off ok if she's yet to go. I'm sure she'll love having her blanket with her. Daniel starts his third year on Monday, I don't know where the last two years have gone. Hope you do join in with the crochet along, it's a lovely blanket and I love having a big project on the go over winter.
