We preempt our regular sewing related blog to post about yesterday's activity - jam making. I was able to get it all done in one day!! That's 1/2 a bushel of strawberries or now about 30 jars of jam. Mr Mad Quilter and 2 of the kids went out of town and dd#2 went to the pool all day so I had no interruptions - but that also meant I had no help. I hate mashing the strawberries - so this years supply may be a little more fruity then usual. The only thing is - right now the sight, smell and thought of eating a strawberry is sickening to me. I had to sample a lot of them.
Look how pretty the color is - maybe tommorrow I'll try some.
