Canning and Crafting
Yesterday I made Hot Pepper Jelly. It is so yummy! I got the link from my sister Allena. Thanks Allena!
I like it best with cream cheese and triscuits! Something about the crunchy, creamy, sweet and hot combo is just fantastic! I used peppers from our garden (of course) and the "hot" variety came from the in-laws and a lady from my local knitting night. It only called for red and green bell peppers but we grew yellow in the garden also so I thought I'd throw that in there too. I love how it looks in the jar, the pepper bits just floating mid jelly :O)
On to the crafting. Through the SAM kal 4 I found THIS LINK to make sock blockers. Well I went to the store yesterday to 1 buy triscuit (see above) and 2 buy a place mat (for sock blockers) I came home with the triscuits, which was well worth the trip in its self. But later in the night I remembered the sock blockers. I was upset and determined this morning to find a way to make them without going to the store. Well I found a big piece of paper and some clear contact paper.... I cut up four templates and put two of them together so it was a bit thick and laminated them! yah! I have my own sock blockers! These will do until I have an extra $30 lying around ;O)
Also I put my pal's socks on them and they look wonderful! I just have to actually block them and then they'll be in the mail! I really want some wooden ones they really do make socks look good! I wasn't a believer until today!
My farmers market tote is a few inches away from seaming the sides together... Maybe I can wonk on it a bit during nap time!
Have a good week end!
