Just took the juice out of the canner. I got 8 pints and one quart of juice concentrate. This makes 20 quarts of juice for breakfast. I also have 5 quarts of unsweetened juice to make jelly with in the refrigerator. I will make the jelly as I have time. I turned out to be a long day and at about 2 we were both very tired I had jarred the juice for jelly and had the covers on all except one pint which I left on the table and went to do something else. Norman was cleaning up the mess, he was cleaning and putting away the press and all the part to it when I heard the crash. Instead of walking around the table and carrying the big heavy base of the press to the sink he reached across the table and lifted it up over the mess I had left on the table, the foot of the cast iron base had hit the pint jar of juice and it hit the floor with a bang and spilled all out. The jar didn’t hit the floor but the juice did. Of course Norman was mad at himself but as I told him, when you are tired things are bound to go wrong and if he got mad at himself and worried about it something else will happen so we both took a deep breath and went on cleaning up. We got over the clean up and got the juice all canned and bottled and will wait for a day or two to make the jelly.
This is a sheer jersey and a shrug for Dyhana. It has sequins all over it and I think she will like this. My sister, Shirley found this clothe at Joanne’s and she got it for Dyhana.
This is another piece of clothe that Shirley got for Dyhana. It is a sequined piece of stretch material. This is a sleeveless top and a hip-hugger skirt to match. Can’t say I like sewing with this material but the new patterns all call for knit material.
This dress is made of cotton with brocade ruffle and shrug. I think it is much prettier in person than it does in the picture.
This is a school dress for Gina, it has a pencil bag to match. I will get some crayons and other school items for in it. I have now cut out a dress with this same pattern, one for Gina, Dyhana, and Prem. Have a great day.
Your sewing is beautiful! There will be some stylish little ladies pleaased with all you make for them!
Thank you! I love sewing, it is so relaxing doing the small dresses. I used to sew Barbie Doll clothes for sale on ebay and then went to Briar Berry Bears and American Doll clothes and had quite a business with them going to craft fairs and selling on ebay but when we moved to GA and enlarged the gardens and started canning for the family I had no time to do the doll clothes. I had only great grand sons at that time so now I have three great grand daughters it is nice to get back to the little girl clothes. I still do Briar Berry Bear dresses to match Gina’s dresses as I gave her one of my Bears, Berry Lynn and she ives to dresses up herself and the bear to match.
