I love September. Last week I bought yet another half-bushel of tomatoes. They are in a big pile in the kitchen challenging me. So, yesterday I made 12 jars of Tomato Marmalade. I had never heard of it before, never mind made it. My version, found here, had tomatoes, oranges, lemons, sugar and ginger. That’s it. I doubled the recipe–and then read that reaching the gel stage is difficult, especially if you double the amounts. Well…no worries…in an hour and a bit I had a wonderful gooey tomato concoction which is very delicious! I’m imagining it with roast pork. I like the sound of this recipe too–and may try it next.
I also found my way to the sewing machines for a couple more rough pouches. Each one is its own colour match–based on what is in the remnant bin and the zipper drawer.
I really like this design. It is useful, durable and a wonderful punch of colour. Below are the three sizes I have made so far. I am working up to making a computer bag and large tote in this style. Stay tuned…
Awesome colours! I love the deep cherry “punch” colour. I always have my purple wrist purse with me and find that it is the perfect size. These pouches could be great for so many purposes – make up, chords, storing batteries… how fun =)
I just love these pouches: the colours are vibrant, the sizes are compact and the uses are endless. They make me smile!
Anne just brought home another bag made by her talented friend Christine: She can’t get enough of them…, as well as a “manly” pouch for me, made from an old bomber jacket. I just love the utilization of old leather for practical new uses in the many different, very creative designs with the unique features of old leather. And the workmanship of these one-of-a kind bags is absolutely superb with many small smart practical touches . Christine produces truly artistic pieces, which are totally undervalued. Put a famous name to them and they would be worth hundreds of dollars. We certainly appreaciate and use these pieces.
