Crazy January Challenge all Finished!

I finished part 9 of the 2017 Linens and Threads Mystery Sampler!  only 3 more parts to go.  This is being stitching on 25 count Vintage Country Mocho over one fabric thread with 1 strand of Valdani floss.  I am using the Autumn Quaker pack of floss, which is 12 colors, so each band is a different color from the pack.

This is also the 19th and final piece from my Crazy January Challenge, where I picked 19 pieces to start one each of the first 19 days in January, and then planned to complete them sometime during the year.  Well, they are now all done!

Snow Day Finish

No, it didn't snow, that's the name of this piece.  It is the last panel of the SamSarah Perpetual Calendar.  The last one!  All done with the stitching.  The assembling will have to wait until spring.  There is spray adhesive involved, and I don't want to spray that inside the house, I will wait until I can do that part outside.

There is another SamSarah series that can be added to the perpetual calendar.   I will get those charts from Margurite on Tuesday, and will pick out a few panels to add to the calendar.

Haven't done a WIP Wednesday in a long time!               Today I am working on part 9 of the 2017 Linens and Threads Mystery Sampler.   In case you don't remember, I am doing this on 25 count Vintage Country Mocha Lugana, with 1 strand of Valdani thread over 1 fabric thread.  The colors are the colors in the Autumn Quaker pack.

And Another New Jam Flavor

  Tried out another new jam recipe.....Mandarin Orange Jam.  Just a very small batch.  Waiting on my label designer to design the label and my taste testers to let me know how they liked it.  If it passes, I will make more.

New Jam Flavor

I recently made a new-to-me flavor of jam.  Katrina sent me the recipe, but the title was Carmel Apple Jam.  Since Carmel can't be home canned, and there is nothing Carmel in this jam, I renamed it Apple Cinnamon Jam.  My taste testers liked it!
