this morning looked much more like February.
But no matter the weather, I still love the view from my front door and have a long look at the start of every day.
My roses are hanging on in there,
I will replace them later in the week, as soon as the first petals drop.
The Alien is still looking good, standing proud in the window.
I told you that Dawn very kindly gave me some Seville oranges, and that I bought some fruit from Abergwilli. I also had some mandarins that were full of pips, reluctant to part with their skins and sour enough to "draw your a**e up to your elbows" as my Granny would have said. I made a batch of orange marmalade and then cooked grapefruit and the mandarins and turned them in to another batch of preserves.
Yesterday morning I had to go to Swansea, while there I popped into Hobbycraft, I had found a piece of yellow fabric for the stash and had a look for their half price fat quarters, there are a couple of bare spots in the stash.
This is the yellow, a bit brighter in the flesh and most welcome.
I found this bundle for £7, it is more aqua than blue and fills a gap in the stash, I am pleased with that. I do not buy much from Hobby craft as I find them pricey.
The Muscle has been busy in my garden, I now have some staging in the greenhouse and some weeds have been eradicated.
In return there has been more sewing,
He has made 2 fully lined bags, and look at the boxed corners.
I think that the next lesson will contain a zip, maybe a pocket on a bag or perhaps a zippered pouch.
While shopping yesterday I slipped into M & S and found these for Maggie, they are her favourite biscuit. I delivered them this afternoon along with a jar of each marmalade.
If you look at the comments on the previous post, you will see some from Notes from home, pop over and say hello. Kim is a very talented crafter, I started following her ages ago and for one reason and another she slipped of the radar. I am slowly catching up with what I missed and enjoying the journey.
It is now time for me to get in the kitchen and "sling hash" or I will rumble so loud that some of you may hear me.
