Birthday Cards for family

  E for Elizabeth (Mum)

L for Liam (cousin's little boy) turning 5 in April

Nana's 99th birthday card

Dad's birthday card - R for Robert

Welcome, baby Noah

Gift for my cousin's new baby boy, Noah.  Hand knotted fleece blanket (baby animals on one side, coordinating yellow on the other), baby ducks stitched on to a short-sleeve onesie and cap.  Forgot to take a picture of the card sent for his welcome but it was an N with a patchwork teddy bear on the front.

Jam & Marmalade Making

Exploits of jam making from the end of 2011 and now.  Rhubarb, Rhubarb and Strawberry, Strawberry, Raspberry and Plum jams are all stored for the winter!  Won't have to buy any for a long, long time!!

20 pots of marmalade in varying sizes, plus several that have been eaten already and a few have been given away - probably made about 26 jars all up.  Also all stored ready for the winter!
