Teach them young…..

Age 5 and handles the scissors rather well already.
Today my little granddaughter helped me cut out my baggy shorts.
This girl LOVES scissors!
Teach them young on things that don’t matter too much and build confidence.

Donated plums…..

The first plums we’ve had donated this year and they are looking glorious in the copper pot.
This batch is destined to be strained into a jelly and then added to vodka to make a plum liqueur for next Christmas.
Smells and tastes heavenly too – I could just eat them cold like this with yoghurt for breakfast every morning! #heskethemporiumhandmade #handmadejam #handmadeplumjam #homemadeplumjam #homepreserving #donatedfruit #ifyoucanteatitallpreserveit

Homemade tomato sauce….

12 x 500ml bottles of Tomato sauce/ketchup made for under £5 yesterday.
It was the first time some of the grandchildren got involved and helped with the chopping.
This is a really wonderful recipe from @Kilner.  Ready for the labels which came with the bottles and Miss M has taken them home to decorate 😁 not even a bottle of sauce is safe from this little craftist!

Being a sewing Ouma….

It’s such a blessing being a sewing Ouma, because when one of the grandsons arrives for a paddle without his swimming trunks, he simply selects the fabric and I rustle up a pair in 15 minutes 😁

What should I call my handwash?

Has anyone else noticed the proliferation of bonkers names for handwash recently?
This one is particularly verbose.
As a tea-totaller should I be using this 🤣#handwashnames @postcodecoffeehouse

This isn’t meringue! ….

 – although I wish it was! 😁. Hubby’s eczema salve goes such a lovely fluffy and white colour when it is beaten. Also made his Eczema lotion, hair detangler, room freshener, surface cleaner and a new test batch of deodorant lotion for myself. A very productive morning. #heskethemporiumhandmade #handmadebeautyproducts #handmadecleaningoroducts #handmadeeczemalotion #handmadeeczemasalve #handmadeproducts

The Michele TLC program….

Another day, and another machine going through the Michele TLC program.
This time it’s a Husqvarna Sew Easy 350 I’ve gifted to a dear, dear friend of mine and it was making a bit of a noise, but not anymore.
After cleaning, oiling and greasing she’s purring like a puddy tat and sewing beautifully.

I’m having an out of body experience!

Stuffing a large bear is a LOT of work; please be patient until I stitch you all together.
Tools of the bear trade – spanner’s, awls and pokey thingies to help with the stuffing. This is an extra special bear to commemorate a lovely friends mom.  All the fabrics are from a loved ones wardrobe and used to create a special memory bear for them to cherish.
