Between everything else lately, I've been working on the garden and will plan on doing some canning from it when the time comes. We are in a drought here so no rain in sight for a week. I've been watering when I can from the rain barrel to help with the cost of watering.

For years I have kept a journal with scraps of tatting in it and things I wanted to remember how to do, showing various techniques that I did.
It really does show my journey through learning how to tat.
I have as my on-the-go container of tools a glasses case as you can see in the picture.
There is also a tea ball that works as a great thread-holder.

Rhubarb Strawberry Jam
2 c. sliced rhubarb
4 cups of sliced strawberries smashed
5 1/2 c. sugar
1 box of sure-jell
In your large pan (8 qt.) measure fruit and sure-jell.
Mix together put on high heat.
In large bowl measure all the sugar so you can it add all at once.
Bring mixture to a full boil that is one that cannot be stirred down, then add the sugar all at once. Bring back to a boil that cannot be stirred down and time for one minute.
Fill your clean jelly jars one at a time. Wipe rim affix the prepared lids and put on rings. When all are done, water bath them all for 10 min.
This is Jam favorite of ours.
