I am 43. I am married to the love of my life. Together we have two beautiful young adults who bring me joy everyday. Secretly, I'm counting the years till grandbabies start coming; they just need to find their forever loves first.

Jar Covers Pattern (For Home Canned Gifts)

I made quite a few baskets of home-canned goodies for friends and family as Christmas presents this last year. The baskets desperately needed some "dressing up", so one afternoon I sat down and came up with this pattern. It's a 10 row from start to finish, easy-peasy, fast pattern. Color coordinate with the goodies being given or use holiday colors to complete your basket of blessings. Hope you enjoy!
