jam and flowers

Been a while since my last post.   Lots going on and mostly all at once it seems.  
I am posting a picture of orange marmalade with pineapple that I canned a few days ago.

I will make a sponge cake and spread it between the layers for coffee or tea in the afternoon.

In the picture above sitting next to marmalade is celery growing in a shallow bowl of water.  
I will transfer it to a pot to grow some more before cutting to use in recipes.   Saw this done in a couple of blogs and it works very well.

some beading done in the evening,  need to wrap the stems with some floral tape

now to make some leaves for the flowers

Happy February!

Hm marmalade's ready...time to try. Those beads are hard to wotk at, I mean I don't do well in crafts. But they are beautiful.
