I love the slow part of winter. No gardens to be weeded, no summer activities we like to cram in while the weather is nice. Just the right time to do extra projects.
I have been working on a few. Maybe too many at one time, but here are some that I have completed (or mostly completed).
I just have a couple more stitches and a little back stitching left to do on this cross-stitch.
I taught myself some new crochet stitches to whip up these baby booties. Once you get the hang of it, they only take about 45 minutes to finish. You can find the pattern here.
In the summer I delay some projects for winter. Like Salsa and Jalapeno Peach Jelly. I freeze whole tomatoes and freezer bags of pre-measured diced zucchini for salsa. I actually made a batch just before Christmas.
And I froze all the peach peels and some pits from when I canned 25 lbs of peaches. So I boiled them up to make juice, which I explained in this post. I made 18 1/2 pints of Jalapeno Peach Jelly. This time I added some vinegar to it for a little tang.
I will sell most of these at Farmers' Markets this year, but my kids love it so I will keep a few jars for them.
Thanks for stopping by,
