I was out for a walk with Violet the other day and noticed the blackberries were ready for pickin. I rushed back to my little cottage, grabbed a strainer and a big bowl and headed out to load up. I picked enough to make eight jars. I found the cutest canning jars with red gingham tops but I thought they needed little bonnets too so I crocheted up a few.
For the first time in years, my jam turned out perfecto. Yummy!
More on Mom's European journey tomorrow.
I told ya I'd sneak in a craft.
