I HAVE AN ADDICTION AND IT IS NOT JUST TO FABRIC

I have made 13 more pints of this plum jelly and I have a confession....I am so addicted to this stuff.
My husband keeps catching me spooning the jelly.... I get a roll of the eyes and a laugh!
To be honest...I don't know if I can make enough of this stuff......OINK OINK!!

 Towels for a wedding.
 Some little snap bags
 When folding my fabrics the question was, what to do with the pieces that were a half yard or smaller but not smaller than a fat quarter.

I love love the solution.

  2. Your plum jelly looks so good. I love jelly made from local fruits. We are hoping to get some figs next month so I can make some preserves! YUM

  3. My, oh, my, you have been busy! That plum jelly makes my mouth water! And I love the wedding towels. I have the pattern for the snap bags, but have never taken the time to make them. Yours look so cute, it makes me want to hunt down the pattern and get to work....but...I'm trying to be disciplined and not keep going off on wild tangents!! (Focus, Karen, focus!!) Appears you're having a great week, hope it continues.

  6. Oh yum!!! That does sound delicious. Our plums aren't in quite yet, but I'll be making some soon. My weakness is the peach jam.

    Beautiful towels, Barb. That will make a nice wedding gift. The little snap bags are darling too.

  8. I can understand the jelly compulsion as I have the same thing when it is time to start putting it up...I love the stuff...your storage solution is a great idea...

  9. That is a clever way to store fabric I have a scrap storage that I like and my large cuts of fabric have a home, but it's those in between pieces that cause me problems.
    Thanks for the suggestion.

  10. Home made is best!!! Storing scrap fabric is a challenge. I can't stand to throw any away, but do toss really tiny pieces. If it's 1 1/2" square, I save it and also save 1" strips.

  12. If you have to have an addiction, that looks like a yummy one to have! I just posted my quilt made from quotes by Elder Dieter Uchtdorf. It finishes up the final wall in my sewing room. I wish I'd have known about self-leveling quilt hanging before because it saved me so much money and I love the way it looks! Hope all is well in your corner of the world. :)

  16. Is there anything you can't do? My gosh, canning too. I hope to get my dills made this year and some spiced beans, but I haven't made jam in years...but I should.

    Love those towels and your unique storage for small bits of fabric!
