I have been preparing Christmas presents this week. This fall I made lots of jellies and preserves to give as gifts at Christmas. Now I have the job of labelling and dressing up the jars with a piece of cloth and ribbon. It’s turning into a big project. I spent two days last week making the labels. GF gave me a new colour printer for my computer that makes lovely labels with colour ink and artwork. This week I have to glue them on the jars and dress up the jars. Then put them each in packages for friends and GF’s family. I never thought about how much work goes into making a gift of home-made jelly before now.
