This week hasn’t been nearly as productive as I imagined it would, but I did manage to get a few things accomplished.
First I made Homemade Strawberry Jam!!! It is amazing. I used a recipe I found Here and it turned out great!! I used a half cup more sugar than they suggest because that is what the pectin said, and it turned out super de duper!! Like… I may become a Jam Addict! I don’t even know how to describe it like better than smuckers like WAY better!
There were actually 7 jars, but I gave one to Mom.
Homemade jam with homemade bread! YUMMY!
So I decided that you can’t truly enjoy homemade jam with homemade bread. So of course I made some!!! Then I enjoyed them both with a nice cup of hot tea!
Irish Brown bread
The best breakfast yet this week!
I’ve also been busy sewing up some abandoned projects. I’ve used a lot of my scrap flannel to sew some baby wash cloths/ cloth baby wipes. These are the cutest I’ve made thus far. Last time I just surged the edge and went from there, but this time I sewed them right sides together, flipped right side out, and top stitched! They look great and are soft!
Baby Wipes/ Wash Cloths
I think they turned out nice. Plus they are all in super cute fabrics that would have all been scrap or left sitting unused for a while!
Other than that this week my husband and I have been working on making our house more of a home! We’ve been hanging pictures, curtains, and art! It looks good I’ll get some pictures of that when we’re all done and I’ve cleaned it up!
Until next time…. Get to work!
