Dressgoods or Furnishing fabrics?
We celebrated my 65th birthday New Years Eve...since I will be at the International Quilt Study Center's Mosaic Exhibit with my friend Peg Juckett for my birthday on January 7. Ron had a very large heavy wrapped package for me.....an 11 quart hammered copper jam pan.....WOW. This has been on the top of my list since I took a wonderful jam making class early this fall (See Sept 18th post). So....we left immediately on a fruit run and I have spent the last 3 days working on an 'everyday marmalade'....lemon and pink grapefruit. The jam pan was the right tool for the job and the color, texture and taste of the marmalade is superb.
