A Good Week


You've got me hooked on freezer jam. Our friend Jeff has a fruit of the month club gift and he had apricots ripening too fast and nothing to do with them. I knew just what to do - freezer jam. It came out great and I'm off today to get some english muffins. I think it also might be a good barbecue sauce on chicken.


I don't know why I got hooked on making these shorts but I've had fun this summer. A friend gave me this fabric for some shorts for her grandson. I'm thinking of getting more fabric and making a duvet cover for Hillary's room here.
It was a good week, some jam, shorts, All Stitched Up projects, lunch with friends. Who could complain?

Apricot jam will make a wonderful grilling glaze. I want to come over for dinner! And I'm chuckling about the shorts -- did you use a Butterick pattern? I just made myself a pair (using vintage sheets). The design looks mighty similar.

Yum! I remember my mom making apricot "preserves" in the summer with the apricots she got from a friend's tree. Makes me want to plant one!
