I cut a thinnish slice of fruit bread, cut it into 4 and when the bacon was crisp, tossed them in them in the pan of bacon fat. Sounds disgusting bit it was very good, dinner for 2 in 20 minutes and very little cost.
I also found a few Maris Piper potatoes lurking in the cupboard so made a few chips. It was a quick, easy and tasty meal. It does not sound overly healthy but I made a fruit salad which rounded the meal off perfectly. I put a red grapefruit in it and it was lovely and sharp.
I mentioned my cushion and a new book yesterday.
This is the book, I had a quick flick through and spotted this.
A while ago I read about these on a blog and thought that it was a wonderful idea, new that it would be perfect for me as I constantly lose things under bits of fabric. I looked up patterns and then did nothing about it, this book has woken me up. I think it is a must for me.
Now this book has been sitting on the shelf, unopened and ignored for a while. I got it down a few days ago and flicked through it. Found this and fell for it.
I really like the version with smaller squares but decided to try the simple one first. I dug out some fabric and it has sat on the cutting mat for a couple of days. This afternoon I spent 20 minutes at the machine and made this.
I had a small cushion form that needed a cover and I am pleased with it. The colour looks good against the ripple. It was a very fast make and I have already pulled the fabrics to make the other version. I do like making cushions and as I have 2 sofas to fill it is a good thing.
Now I am going to get on with my crochet, I have done 17 rounds on the poncho now and it is looking good.
