cooking & things

This gorgeous tennis set arrived last week,
My brother was telling me about his Lilly Pilly tree & the berries he collected. 1st time in all the years he's had it there were enough berries to make jelly. So i said if his wife wasn't going to do it bring them around to me. So he did - the next day.  lol.
By the time the jelly was ready to be put into jars 2 cups of liquid had boiled down to this. Next i made Blood Orange & Franjelico Marmalade.
It is very tasty. Despite being a marmalade it is quite sweet. A sneaky peek at a project for the Christmas in July swap. They are all ready now for the posting date of July 15th,
I was hoping to take pictures outside for this but it's a crappy day with rain. :(.

Happy Stitching,

Oh I love that tea cup set. Is there a special name for a saucer & plate in one? My mum would have known but I just can't think of one... xx
