First flimsy finished this year.

Well the title sounds good. But it has taken me all year to get this flimsy to this stage. It is so big 80" X 100" that I can't quilt it on my machine so I am thinking I will have to send it to a long arm quilter.  I am thrilled to have finish it and really pleased how it has turned out considering some of the ugly fabric that is in it. In the photo it is folded in half as I couldn't find a space big enough. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunters mystery quilt from 2010. Roll Roll Cotton Boll.

Pipiroa Plum Jam

 Happy New Year everyone. My daughter gave me some plums at Christmas so I have been busy to day making plum jam. I was a bit worried it wouldn't set but it looks OK and tastes ok too. I had some on toast with creamed cheese yum.
