The abundance of cherries made it possible for me to buy a box of these yummy sweet fruits, something I have never done before. And with so many to eat I decided to make some cherry topping. Can't call it jam as I wasn't prepared to boil it for that long and I made up the recipe as I went along. First to pit the cherries.
Cut the cherries.
Simmer with lemon juice and lemon rind.
Add sugar and simmer further.
My secret ingredient! And the result tastes wonderful with yoghurt.
Did try some fabric colouring but the colour wasn't set in the cloth so washed out to leave brown stains.
With many celebrations planned in 2015 for the 100th anniversary of world war, you may want to be part of a quilt tribute to Anzacs. Small 25cm square quilts are called for with further information on www.lestweforgetquilts.com.au
Picked out this colourful, fun fabric covered with fish, crabs, starfish and jellyfish as my birthday fat quarter from Sunnybank Quilters. Luckily I have the brights in my stash and will probably make something for the Melbourne grandchildren.
Travel is an exciting & large part of my life, combined with creating fabric, stitching art quilts & enjoying textile traditions around the world.
I work in the quilting industry; exhibit, judge, curate, tutor & write.
These are some of the threads of my life.
