There are fools and eedjits all around us, they need no encouragement.
I have had a few attempts at photographing the jewellery that Maggie has made for me.
This colourful bracelet is her first piece and I love it. All the stones are semi precious gems and the colours are amazing together.
I admired this Cabochon while we were having a coffee one afternoon and within a couple of days Maggie presented me with this brooch, it is perfect on my purple coat.
Earlier this week I called round with some Asparagus and over coffee she showed me some of her more recent makes, this ring caught my eye and I left with it. Spoilt or what?
It is very "Elizabeth Taylor" in my view and is large enough not to look like a child's item on my large hands.
On a different note, look at my pepper plant. I moved it into the little utility room before Christmas and brought it back to the sewing room windowsill a few days ago. I have had over 20 fruits from this plant and it still has a few peppers on, and they are sweet and juicy. The plant was one from Lidl, there were 4 plants for £1, I had this, a chilli and 2 tomato plants, the toms are long gone but I have enough chillies in the freezer till I get fresh ones later this year. That was £1 well spent.
The roses and tulips were from Lidl as well and just over a week later they are looking great, the tulips are now starting to bend their stems around, I love it.
Tomorrow I am going to take all the small stuff from the sewing room and get ready for the frame. I know that there is enough room for it all but can not visualise the layout. I also have a console table in my bedroom that I would like in the sewing room. It is a perfect size to hold the overlocker and my thread stand. At the moment they are on my old sewing machine table and I have other plans for that.
Dinner last night was left over pie, and I was piggy enough to have home cooked chips and mushy peas with it, mushy peas are 17p a tin in Lidl and are lovely.
Tonight will be a pepper and mushroom pizza, I have a spicy tomato base sauce and some Mozzarella to go on it. I am cheating and using the crust from a small Tiger loaf as the base, there will be 2 for another day and some crumbs for the freezer, all for 75p, again from Lidl.
I do make a decent Pizza dough but fancied a change.
Now it is time for tea and some more knitting.
