Quince Jelly


My friend Sandy had a terrific crop of quince this year, and here are the results! Quince jelly, made at the cabin this week. I must say I am quite proud of myself, nice color, firm jell (I do not use commercial pectin) and the lids all popped down....music to my ears. No wonder I did not mend a quilt this week.

the nights are drawing in and we are lighting the fire. This was a 3 blanket night. Our cabin is not heated or insulated.
Although I generally am not a landscape artist, I could not resist these stormy scenes.

one of my vintage wedding dresses was featured in an Etsy treasury this week....Moonlight....not an easy theme to get right, but allisb, a talented photographer got it right.

some of my pretty fabric made it to this enchanting treasury... English Country Garden....who could resist.....Dolly Mixture Crafts put this one together

And a lovely 30s quilt featured in a 30s themed treasury, the golden age of quilts in my opinion. Nice selection from SalvationScraps who sells intersesting vintage and upcycled clothing on etsy. All shops are worth taking a peek.
