I made jelly and jam. I was just going to make jelly but couldn’t stand to throw away the pulp so only strained a small amount of juice, enough for one jar of jelly. I squeezed two and a half jars of jam out of the pulp. I usually bulk out my blackberry jam with apples for the extra pectin but cheated with lemons this time.
Unedited first draft. I love the typeface on this Lettera 32
It was Pirate Day in Hastings U.K. today. The streets were filled with pirates of every description. The procession was fantastic with lots of drumming
I spotted some knitted participants
And found a lovely pile of treasure in a shop in Old Town…
These machines were in pretty good shape. The underwood had spools but no ribbon, but otherwise seemed well presented. Lots of other good treasure in this shop too. I didn’t have time to investigate thoroughly as we were in town for pirates but it was great to see these machines after a run of not finding anything much for a while.
I also had my first swim of the year in the sea this morning and I can report the water was great – calm and not chilly 🙂
