That's wonderful that you care enough for family to do that.

That's my style . I think home made is more delicious as well as cheaper.

When hubby worked I used to bake bread an cookies etc for his lunch an the guys were stealing his stuff.. Soon they were coming to buy it.. Once there was a bad layoff an his buddies used to come up an I gave it to them for free. They lost their jobs an it was very hard on the town folks for money.

Do you sew also ? I do that too.. Crochet an an crafts

Bali,
The jelly sounds so simple to make. I bet it is so good. Love, love, love raspberries!

Very pretty Raccoon. I'm not creative with such things at all. Bali has shown some beautiful things she has made. Knock your socks off!

Cindy it isn't real hard to do.

2 quart pot an mix the sugar an fruit , cup for cup.
Put it on almost the highest setting it must boil to make the jelling point .

Use a wooden spoon an when it runs off the spoon in 2 drops its ready.

Stir it the whole time it boils, Only with a wooden spoon.

Gosh raccoon they are so cute..

Guess I will need to send more seeds to get some fealties from you .

HOw do you cut them?

You do a neat job.

Guess you have patterns?

Thanks for the recipe Bali, couldn't be simpler! I'm definitely going to try it sometime.

Racoon, very cute felt projects! You must be a very patient person to cut and sew all those pieces so nicely.

yes it takes a lot of patience to sew and cut all the little pieces together to make the deer and his body parts but in the winter time that is all i have to do other than play with the plants as too cold and bad weather to be outside anymore
