Autumn Time and I'm Feeling Crafty

This weekend is going to be busy. I started making more crab apple jelly last night which I'll finish tonight.You need ALOT of apples to make jelly naively I thought I'd have a kitchen full of jars with my 1kg haul,more like 2 jam jars:) This time I used 3.5kg so hopefully I will end up  approx 5 jars.

 I need to get up super early on Saturday to pick more blackberries, we made an amazing blackberry chutney (I know it sounds sooooo wrong) but surprisingly it the best flavour ever especially with strong cheedar cheese.yum. I am doing a barter swap with my workmate Joe his dad makes honey so he will give me jam jars in exchange for chutney.

Besides the preserving I am starting a BIG knitting project I've decided to make a Puff. My bestie Jill sent me a link to this last year and I decided to go for it, it'll keep me busy during the Winter months.

The pattern can be found on Pickles Blog
