4 more blocks to make and hand piecing can commence.


Seeing the layout at this scale, it reminds me of icicle plant flowers. That was how I knew them as small child. Every summer, papa would plant them around our small pool. Still I remember the green smell, and how the flowers would only open in the sun.

...is jamming!



A work colleague of M's brought a carrier bag full of rhubarb sticks monday. After cleaning and chopping, there was a few grammes under 2 kilos. M wondered what the faen to do with it. Jam, I said, remembering afternoon tea at Howick Hall tea house in Northumbria. Their rhubarb and ginger jam was d'liceux!

Fruits of my labours y/day afternoon.

I used 1.1kg of fruit and jam sugar, and re-used honey jars. I found wax discs in the kitchen shop after attending Gait Clinic, and followed the recipe in my Good Housekeeping cook book. This the first time I have made jam and I'm pleased with how it came out. It has a good set, but I'd have preferred it to be less sweet. Still, I learn something new, no? :- )
