A Surprise and Some Stitching

 A friend in my craft group messaged last night and said she wanted to drop something off to me today. 

A jar of homemade strawberry jam made by her cousin, and she crocheted the very cute little jar topper.

Tomorrow I will either need to make some homemade bread or go out to buy some so that I can toast it up and give the jam a try.

Tomorrow is my friend, Aruna's birthday, so I am working on a cross-stitch for her.  Hopefully I can find a frame to fit it in.

Most of today was spent cleaning and doing some decorating so not much to show for that.

A short, quick post for the day.

Hope your Saturday is a good one.

The jar topper is very cute.

You could do a stitched border and fringe the cross stitch. It would make a beautiful bookmark.

Dearest Tammy,
What a delightful and very sweet gift of strawberry preserve with cute crocheted topper.
You no doubt managed to bake some good bread for toasting and trying this...!
Got an early Christmas gift of VISION. So very happy with the outcome of my eye surgery on Thursday. My Pieter even managed to drive the one hour home via Interstate; feeling proud of him. Did manage to drive back myself next day for the post-op checkup and all was well. Using mean burning eye drops and that for 4 weeks, going from 4x to 1x daily... Time will pass and heal all.

Homemade strawberry jam sounds so delicious. That was sweet of your friend to give you some along with the very cute topper.
The cross-stitch is very nice too. You'll have to show us how you finish it. I really miss cross-stitch and now that I've finished with Christmas things, I want to get back to my projects I was in the middle of when the frezy of holiday preparations began. I have the sheep virtues that I was about half done with that I'm looking forward to working on and also a sweater for Dennis. I always have more projects than time.
Blessings and hugs,
