Aaaaahh! Summer In Queensland!

Hello to you all from our rather warm corner of QLD! With the temperature at around 37C & the humidity about three times that, there's no mistaking which season we're in. :0) And if we had any doubts, the cicadas singing, black cockatoos squawking & the cricket on TV would confirm it for us. :0) Aaaaaahh! Summer in QLD! LOVE IT!!

There really hasn't been much of anything happening around here in the last couple of weeks. A bit of hand stitching, a bit of machine sewing, but no real progress as such. I think my mojo has gone on holiday without me. :0)

About the only achievement I can claim this week is turning this ...


... My big red pot full of summer peaches ... into ...


... Yummy peach jam. (There were quite a few more bottles from the batch ... We will be enjoying peach jam for quite some time. :0) ) It's a bit hard to see in this pic as it was taken at night, but the peach jam is the most glorious deep gold colour. YUMMO! Particularly delicious on warm croissants. MMMMMMMM ... I think that might be our Saturday morning treat this week. :0)

Whatever you're up to this week, whether you're sweating through sweltering summer days or shivering through frosty snowy ones (& you know which of those choices I prefer!!), I hope you're well & enjoying 2017 so far. I'll be back to talk about OPAM 2017 soon, so stay tuned! :0) In the meantime I'm off to pop a few more ice cubes in my water bottle. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
KRIS xx
