I've been enjoying reading about their first year on the farm and the setting up of the cooking school. The diary-like entries are interspersed with recipes. One that I want to try is for pineapple jam. I have memories, from growing up, of pineapple jam on the rare occasions mum would buy it for me..I seemed to be the only one in the family who enjoyed it...it came in a can and I can still remember the opening of it and getting that first taste each time...it is years since I have seen it, so I wonder if the version I make from the book will live up to my memories or surpass them..

Yes...I am joining in for this year's Stitch-A-Long. It is the quilt from the book "A Holly Cottage Christmas" by Michelle Ridgeway. I love Michelle's designs and since I already had the book the decision to join in was an easy one. The hardest part for me is always deciding on what fabric to use...but there is plenty of time until we start in earnest in June...until then it is getting our fabrics sorted and maybe making one of the smaller projects in the book.
The lovely Fiona and Raewyn are going to be our hosts for this Stitch-A-Long.
If you would like to join in then leave a comment over on the Stitch-A-Long page here and the book is available from Michelle here (you will find details on her blog sidebar).
