I had planned that this tag would be photographed with a beautiful jar of redcurrant jelly for my Passion for Papertrey challenge entry this week - but I haven't had time to make it yet! I have picked the fruit though and as far as I am concerned redcurrants are definitely the most beautiful fruit in the garden. On the bush they have a luminosity that is unrivalled and I'm always rather sorry to see the bush stripped of its beauty when I'm finished picking.
Anyway - the current challenge is to create a summertime project and preserving the soft fruit my garden produces is something I enjoy doing every summer. I've used my new PTI Friendship Jar set, Darkroom Door's plaid background stamp and some red and white bakers twine. I hope to be in the kitchen preserving a lot this week as the blackcurrants are also ready for picking and I've managed to freeze as many raspberries as we have eaten already! Definitely a good year for soft fruit!
Apology!! I've been really bad at keeping up with my blogging friends over the past week or so. I'm really sorry not to have been able to comment as much as I like to do - but I'm setting aside this evening to catch up (fingers crossed)!
