The slice was not pudding, it was to sooth my furrowed brow. I still can not find my knitting pins, I have resigned myself to having to buy new ones and make another roll to keep them in. SIGH, mutter, putter, swearswearswear.
See my slices,
Just a small selection, I have been busy with rotary cutter and rulers.
A closer look, now you get it.
An unintentionally blurry shot of my playing, the background is some of the blue Hessian (Burlap) that I was gifted.
As usual I was impatient to start so I did not stop to cut the Hessian to size or hem the edges. I am going to carry on for a little while and then decide on what size. I am considering binding the edges, just like a quilt for a neat finish, I have lots of binding left over from my quilts.
These strips are from retired duvet covers and sheets, there is also a bit of leftover quilting fabric as well. And I have been given a huge bag of tee shirts to cut up. I may have to make a carpet ;-)
This will keep my hands busy while I watch a bit of telly and make a change from crochet, we won't mention Knitting.
I see that Ilona, Life After Money, has done another yellow sticker shop. She certainly picks up the bargains. I will have a look tomorrow night but do not need much. The cheese that I had for dinner was a RTC bargain at £3.00 a Kilo for Llangloffan smoked cheese, it is usually £15 per Kilo.
It is really smoked not the injected or soaked in smoke flavoured liquid sort.
I have kale, spinach, parsnips and purple sprouting broccoli in the garden. I picked up a massive bag of onions from farm foods for £1, I have carrots and swede in the fridge. Oh and I nearly forgot the big vine ripened tomatoes that Tesco were selling off for 20p a tray of 5, they are big enough that each one sliced will do 2 sandwich rounds.
They also make lovely soup.
Ben is curled up beside me making "old man sleeping in a chair" noises, little snuffles, snorts and almost snores.
I am going to settle down with some vintage Midsummer Murders and my ragging.
PS, After the lovely crisp air and sunshine from yesterday we were back to grey and soggy today.
