To be honest it's been there so long I forget that it's there. There was the funny story of a friends husband who was visiting and had had a 'few'. He was trying to convince me to open up some of those preserves!
Anyway here is a photo for you and Raewyn to see what I mean.
I had to wrack my brain to think about when this was made (early '90s I think). I only made 2 blocks in it, the strawberry one and the raspberry one. The other blocks where made by others in a swap.
My friend Roz who
I tried to make them look like they were on a shelf and even used wood grain fabric, shame I didn't look at a real shelf and see the grain lines don't go the way I made them! And you can see I thought just quilting in the ditch was enough. Anyway it still makes me smile, because it's cute and it reminds me of Roz.
Lets have a closer look.....
|Isn't this centre block clever how the quilter stacked the two jars?|
|And this 'onions in a jar' is my favourite. I love this onion fabric!|
At the time I made up this wallhanging, decorative preserved fruit and vege jars like this one above, were all the rage. I thought I was so clever making my own fabric version!
Now you have seen this blast from my 90's past, just think yourself lucky I haven't kept the leg warmers I knitted in the 80's to show you!
