We had a weekend away and I gave our hosts some home made items as I know they like that sort of thing.
I made some Whisky, Seville Marmalade last month and put some in a presentation jar as I knew it would be going with us. Then nearer the time I made some orange and lemon curd which I popped into another jar the same. It really is worth collecting odd decorative jars when you have eaten the contents and then decorating them with circles of pretty fabric. These two jars had originally contained mixed olives with lemon, from Greece. I gave them to the one with the sweet tooth.
Next up is the other home made which was a new silk purse of course! I just happen to be in production mode for them at the moment so I made one especially for my friend. She was very pleased.
Well this is all for now as I need to do some chores, with the days lengthening, the greenhouse has been much warmer and the auto vents have started to open in the Spring sunshine; the garden is starting to look more inviting too but it means that I have plenty to do so I had better go.
