Congratulations to Tony Gwynn – the newest member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is refreshing to know that a man can be recognized with the highest honor of his profession having played his entire career for one team - The San Diego Padres. He didn’t play for the highest paycheck, he wasn’t plagued by scandal and innuendo. He played for the love of the game in the place he always called home. For this the fans and Tony have been richly rewarded.

Dear Libby, Thanks for your comment on my blog. I don't understand what you said about tying the knots wrong? As long as the quilt gets tied--that's what I say! I'm sewing on the binding today. You might be interested in seeing the baseball quilt I made in honor of the Angels winning the World Series in 2002. I made a quilt for my grandson that has been autographed by 2 or 3 players. It's on my Flickyr, that you can get to from my blog.

Oh, me. I posted a long comment on your canning yesterday and now it is not there. Where did it go? My suggestion was to use a vaccum sealer and bags after freezing the fruit. Really works well. Too tired to think what all I said yesterday. :(

Wasn't Cal inducted, too? I am 99.9% sure that he only played for the Orioles....

Congratulations to Tony and Cal Ripkin. I think they both represent baseball extremely well and deserve this honor.

I am in total agreement! I love the game of baseball...grew up with it, played it, snuck into AA parks to watch when I was young. Cursed everyday that I wasn't born a boy so I could play. Hats off in honor to Tony Gwynn....he is baseball!

I love your blog...found it thru Vermont Harvest! Pam

Hi Libby,

For really easy jelly making, you'll want to consider Lehman's steam juicer.

This is a great product if you have the opportunity to pick large volumes of fruit. You can also cook 1 pot meals, make your own tomato paste, and V8 juice.

Enjoy!

I'm not much of a baseball fan but I live with one. Good luck with your canning and freezing projects. Your wool roving is so pretty. Congratulations to Tony!
I just found your blog and I'm so glad I did.
