I hope this finds you all happy and well, as is this little household.
I finally finished the little jacket I was knitting for my granddaughter, my son and daughter in law loved it, my granddaughter (miss 3) was too interested in the cartoons on the TV to take much notice…..ho hum.
I couldn’t find any buttons to match so covered some old buttons I had with purple velvet and they blended in with the flowers so well.
And a close up of the flowers I made, I really need to get cracking with the crochet so I can crochet some itty bitty flowers.
I have ordered some yarn from England would you believe, even with postage it was cheaper than buying it here, and they have a larger variety of very yummy colors too. I have picked up the knitting needles again after many years of drought and I want to learn crochet too, but find it so expensive here to buy. What to do, what to do!!!
Had a Sunday family day yesterday, my mum bought a roast lamb up for our dinner, that went down a treat and I made some oh so yummy fairy cakes, recipe from Lucy at Attic24, can I just say they were the best I have ever made, light and moist, no time to decorate or take photos, they were eaten as soon as they cooled. Will certainly be making more of these. Thank you for sharing this recipe Lucy.
Mum bought a couple of things up that I had ‘worked’ when I was in my 20’s some
30 odd, umm few years ago, will show them next time, son #1 was quite impressed when he saw them.
I had a long overdue trip to the hairdressers on Saturday, cut and new color, what do you think??? I love it, such a rich color for dreary grey winter days. Daughter declared ‘Oh mum such a cool color, I want my hair that colour too’
Hmmmmmm, I now blend in with these
Oooh, what is that peeping out down the bottom left of the photo………………………..
…………Ah another card that I have made…….
Whilst sitting with my hair all gooped up waiting for the color to bake I had my nose stuck in a cook book “Apples for Jam” Sue from The Quince Tree talked about this book and another one called ‘Food for Friends and Family’ which I am still waiting on to be delivered because there is a biscuit recipe that I just have to try, amongst other things they have ‘After Dinner Mints’ in them, oh my just as well I exercise…..will tell you how they turn out.
All this talk about food is making me hungry, a bowl of Pea and Ham soup I made yesterday with some crusty bread will do very nicely thank you 🙂
Have a happy day where ever it takes you.
