Strawberry Day

About 2 days ago, a few of my children were bemoaning the fact that we were out of Strawberry Freezer Jam and they had to use the "store jam" that just didn't taste as good.  Later that day, I was chatting with Barbara and a few of my SIL's about how I never saw Strawberries go on a good sale this summer, because that is what reminds me to make jam.  And then wouldn't you know it, yesterday I got a text from Barbara saying that The Strawberries Are On Sale!!!  So off to the store we went and I got to spend a lovely morning with my fantastic little helper making 216 ounces of Strawberry Freezer Jam.  Yummy!!!


And then, after my little helper went to Preschool, it only seemed right to head down to the sewing room and make up this adorable Strawberry block for Cynthia.   This was out Sept. (sorry it is a bit late :)  bee block from Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book and I was once again remembered  just how fun those blocks are to make up!!!  I can't wait to see Cynthia's Strawberry quilt all done up.  And making this block added another to do on the list because I decided  I really want to make up the Farm Girl Sampler one of these days.  So fun!!!


And now, I might just treat myself to a little Strawberry ice cream before the kids come home to just finish off a whole Strawberry Day :)  Gotta love it!!

I hope you are all having a Berry Happy Quilting Day :)

Pin It!

  1. I think the reason you didn't see strawberries go on sale over the summer is there weren't many, and they weren't that great. The weather just drove the farmers crazy this year. But that jam you made is going to be a special treat come winter.

  3. I have never heard of freezer jam. Off to google it. Strawberries would never last long enough in our house to get made into jam!
