I have been fairly absent from my regular stitching activities since before Christmas. I made a bunch of bunting, six embroidered clothing items, a set of four Kanzashi style flowers but I haven't done much temari. Other things keep getting in the way... like bargain cherries.
My SIL purchased a huge box of Cherries for Christmas day. We all knew there would be no way we could eat them all but it was suggested the leftovers could be turned into jam. Between Christmas and New Year, that is exactly what I did. We ate more than I expected so I added some raspberries that were left over from the Christmas Ice-cream cake too. I just need to remember to share out all the jars now.
