I certainly hope that everyone has been doing well, keeping busy with projects and ideas. I've been busy but really have little to show for it. Almost no stitching going on at the moment, this I'm sure is due to my recent addiction to Diablo 3, a game for my PC. My dear hubby and I play together after our son has gone to bed AKA my stitching time... Anyhoo last I posted I was determined and very motivated to clear out my craft room. Yeah, not so much activity in that room. For the most part (honesty is the best policy) I have not followed through with my deceleration of 15 minutes a day. In fact the hubby added some more "items" to the mess though my son removed a few so I figure I'm still at ground 0 as far as progress.
Then things started to ripen, Raspberries in particular. This is the first year that they are not only doing okay but that there are enough of them to use for things. I present Raspberry Rhubarb freezer Jam. Woo Hoo!! I pulled my trusty Betty Crocker book out and made us some jam. I'm rather proud of myself, I'm a jam first timer and I feel very good about my end result.
Rhubarb-Raspberry Jam (Better Homes and Gardens 12th edition P.189)
6 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened sliced rhubarb
4 cups sugar
2 cups raspberries or one 12-oz package of frozen lightly sweetened red raspberries
1 3-ounce package of raspberry-flavored gelatin (not sugar free)
* I know, Jell-o!?!? Say what? That's what Betty called for so that's what I did.
Lookie, the raspberries are lovely fresh from my yard.
Oh well, guess I'll find time for stitching once the weather turns again. It's supposed to go back to rain next week.
Keep on stitching! >^_^<
