I made another 3 storage bags, yellow, red and green, all have been loaded with the appropriate colour fabrics.
The yellow and green are not as pale as they look, they were both made from pillow cases, there is enough fabric to make a bag and have scraps in each case.
I have 3 more cut out ready to start, floral, dark and grey. I may make an orange one or perhaps use the yellow bag for both colours, time will tell. I will keep my eyes open for a suitable orange fabric, I do not have any in the stash that I want to cut up yet.
I went out for dinner last night to friends, I cooked it and took with me as a treat for them.
First I made some cakes, coffee and walnut.
I use paper tin liners and when I got the new packet out realised that they were for 2lb tins, hey ho, I used one anyway. It was not too unsightly and I portioned that cake up for the freezer. The other went with me, it became pudding with some clotted cream ice cream. Very Yum.
I picked a handful of strawberries and raspberries from the garden to make a fresh fruit cake. The mix looked a little slack so I threw in a good scoop of coconut, put 3/4 of the mix into a lined tin added the fruit and then dolloped the rest of the cake mix on the top. It sank just a little in the middle as it cooled but smells so good.
For dinner I made a one pot wonder, Chicken, Bacon and veg cobbler. There are carrots, mushrooms, celery, peas, green beans and sweetcorn in there under the cobbles, all in a creamy sauce made with milk and chicken stock.
I just rubbed some butter into SR flour added a pinch of salt and a grinding of black pepper then added the leaves from a few sprigs of thyme, I bound it to a loose mix with an egg and some milk then just pulled lumps off with my fingers and dropped them on the filling.
It served 4 very generously and we had some spring greens on the side.
Now it looks as if this wet morning is trying to clear out, Ben has had his walk, the vacuum has been whizzed round upstairs and the bathroom has had a birthday.
I am off to inspect the garden and see if I can work outside yet, if not it will be sewing time.
PS, I will be popping the parcel in the post today Sooze.
