Canning Season and a Question

It's been 30 years since I canned anything. This summer I have picked some apples and made some applesauce, some apricots which I have added some peaches to and I am in the process of making apricot peach butter in the slow cooker. A friend told me about doing it this way shefound it on
Now my question is how do I make food in jars a link so you could just click on it and go there? I'm not sure how to do this and I sure would like to be able to do it as I often find things I would like to share.
Okay, back to the quilt room to get some more work done.

The Hurrier I Go

Here it is the 22nd of August already. I need a way to slow down the days. I finely entered something in the fair this year and won two red ribbons. I entered the Double Irish Chain quilt and one I did many years ago called White Bear from the book called Quilted Legends of the West. The book says that, "When the Indians brought goat skins to explorer Captain Cook in 1778, he thought they were white bear. Explorer Alexander MacKenzie saw the animals and decided they were white buffalo, and Lewis and Clark thought they were mountain sheep. The Mountain goat is not a goat at all, but an antelope". When I put it in the guild show in WA it took viewer's choice and my husband liked it so much that I gave it to him as a birthday gift.

Today I am attempting to can applesauce and some apricots. It's been 30 years since I last canned anything so keep your fingers crossed for me.

Back to the never ending chore of putting fabric away.

Pay It Forward

I've joined a PIF on Amanda's Musings which can be found here . Sorry I don't know how to make it so the link doesn't show. The idea is that she will make something in the next year and send it to me. Then I blog about it here and recruit 3 people to play along. Those that sign up will recieve something I have made sometime in the next year. So if this sounds like fun let me know and I'll add you to my list. Once you have left a comment that you would like to play then you blog about the PIF on your blog and get three people to play along. Once I have something made I will contact you for your mailing address so I can send your gift on it's way.
So who would like to play?
p.s. Did I mention that today is my BIRTHDAY?
