A Skirty Surprise!


So you all liked my pretty little skirty thing aye?  What a wonderful pile of lovelies you all are.  I've had offers of homemade bread from Luisa, homemade cream cheese from Floss, an offer to send me more obedient ribbon and a rather smart remark about me being on the bottle.  Yes well, say no more!  Really Liz, sometimes I really wonder where you get your outrageous ideas from!

Now I made a small error with my numbers yesterday.  Numbers and I aren't not best friends.  I even struggle to learn a new phone number, mine that is.  It's a bit embarassing when I'm asked for it unexpectedly, I just go blank.  Completely blank. 

Anyway getting back to the story of the plums, I actually only spent $3, not $10 as previously stated, and for that amount I weighed close to 4kgs of stoned plums.  Just remarkable!  For you English lasses that would be about one tiny pound.   

This morning after dropping No.3 at kindy, I popped into two different supermarkets until I found my special jamming sugar.  And home I came to cook up another eight jars of loveliness.  I have to say it tastes
fab-u-lous.  And the colour is just marvelous, a rich red.

Now because of all your very lovely comments about my cutsey skirty thing, I whipped up a few more to tempt your taste buds with.  But I'm going to be super kind this time.  Oh yes I am! 

Yes my little cherubs, this time I'm giving one lucky commenter the chance to win all three of these little skirty wonders.  And yes the stitching is all rather straight for a change.  No running off the edges at all, believe it or not.  And no you won't be receiving the first disaster, no, that one will be going to the jammy skirt cemetery.

So if you think your precious little jammies would like to be dressed in the finest jam wear available, please leave me another wonderful comment right here.  I will be drawing one special name on Saturday morning, lets say about 9am.  That will give me time to shower and make myself a little presentable for such an important announcement.

I've also some tomato chutney which I feel would need trousers!!!

The skirts are so cute! The jam looks very good too. It makes my mouth water!

Kate said...

Oh I love them too much! This year, I have made hundreds of jars of jam that are slowly getting sold and going off to live in other places and be enjoyed by other people. But I can promise you this; if I am lucky enough to win one of your jam jar skirts, one of my jars will be staying behind here to be dressed up so very beautifully. X

Well now, as Ben is our jam-maker, I wonder if he's appreciate feminine jars? What would be the masculine equivalent, do yout think?

Manka said...

Oh, they are so pretty ! Well, my jars on the shelf look just so naked without a skirt....

Farmgirl Cyn said...

Yes, indeedy, do enter my name! I would love to have a few skirty things for my homemade jams! Pretty enough to take center stage on the counter, for sure!

TheMadHouse said...

Hmmph, that is the sound on me stomping cause I want cheap fruit. I might settle for a skirty though!!

Heleen said...

What a sweet idea!

Lululiz said...

Hmm, you want ANOTHER wonderful comment? Insatiable, thats what you are. Well, lets see..... yay, the stitching is straight! Yay, errmmm, now what was it I was going to say? Little old ladies do get forgetful.

It looks so yummy.

I love the little skirts and I think you should knit them little shawls as well. All my stitching is a bit squiffy, especially when ribbon is involved, so I would never have noticed without your pointing it out to me!

Some folks won't be satisfied until your jars are fully attired in skirts, shawls, hats, and possibly bloomers as well. My jars wear dust.

I just love the fact that the flirtiest of the skirts is on a jar which says "Bit On the Side" round the rim of the lid!!
