I hope you like the new look on the blog! Just thought it needed a bit of fun and colour :)
I have been pretty busy the last few days working on some various projects! Just have a few pictures to post so enjoy!
Got another block for the A-Mazed quilt done yesterday which brings my total to 2 of these 17 1/2inch blocks Aren't they fun!?
So I was browsing around on pinterest and saw a link to Entrelac crochet. So I ended up google-ing more tutorials and found an amazing youtube series by Bethintx1. If you are interested in making this blanket you definitely need to check out this multi video tutorial!

So I have been wanting to make some homemade jam for the longest time and finally picked up some pectin and mason jars as well as a bunch of fruit. I found 2 packages of Key Limes in the grocery store and had to get them because I love lemons and limes!!
Then of course I had no recipie so I googled around and found this one:
Yes that is Strawberry Key Lime Jam. And let me tell you it was amazing!! I halved the batch so it made 4 lovely cups (250ml jars) and I will definitely be making it again. The only changes I will make is to add a bit more lime and pectin and a bit less sugar. ( I did 3 cups this time instead of the 3 1/2, I think I will do 2 1/2- 2 3/4 next time) Below are my finished jars and jam covered tea towel- don't worry it washed out very easily in cold water! The one on the front right looks a bit funny but that is because I put all the "foamy and fruit bits" that were strained off to fill the jar. That is the one I opened first and will use up right away!
I also had the best news upon checking my email this morning because I found out I had won a give away hosted by Quilt Jane at Want It, Need It, Quilt It
I was lucky enough to win these amazing templates made by Jane and the Paper Pieces for these blocks from Joanne at Possum Blossom Patchwork
These are examples of Joannes Rose Star Blocks! Aren't they amazing!!
Hope you all have a great day!!
