I have had lots of fun today making something, the recipient reads the blog so I can only show a snippet.
It really should have been in different colours but, in full on selfish mode, I went ahead and pulled some light and pretty prints. I further indulged myself by making some of my favourite HST,s up and a larger block. I beg forgiveness in advance, once it arrives at it,s destination.
I did find a 30p bunch of lilies, they are filling the room with their perfume. Not as ostentatious as the blue were but just as lovely.
My sewing room now has some new wall mounted shelving, this will resolve the stuffed full bookshelves. I am not sure what I will do once the walls are full ;D
The weather here has been grey and damp but at least the wind has shoved off. Ben does not like it at all, he is so little that he has to bop down for a wee otherwise he is lifted off his feet.
I have a massive pot of beef and vegetable stew on the simmer and have made dumpling mix (just have to add the water) to go with it. There will be cabbage as well, enough to feed 2 tonight and some for 'ron in the week. I am having a good go through the house before Fran arrives, once she is here it will be the bare minimum of housework.
I am still undecided about puddings, a trifle for sure but am torn between cheesecake and meringue. It is all the fault of Rachel*sweet toothed* Radiostar, showing her cake on her blog, it was nearly enough to send me after the Maple Syrup and a straw. I had planned on cheesecake, but now.......perhaps I could make both.
I am off now, I am well behind on my blog reading and see a cosy evening in the corner of the sofa, tea at hand, and maybe a cookie or three. I have to have the corner as Ben sprawls all over the rest.
