it's been like this for a few days now, which explains my (comfort) food choices - like the Cinnamon Sugar Pullapart bread from http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2011/03/cinnamon-sugar-pull-apart-bread/ - and it was only after stuffing our faces that I noticed the recipe said to 'let rest for 30 mins' - it didn't get a chance!!!..........like home made pizza - shared with fabulous friends we haven't seen for a while (and I turned into one of those ancient aunts who exclaim "look how much you've grown" to all the kids - although have to say, it's true - the kids HAVE grown since we saw them last!!)..........like stew and dumplings...........and flavoured crisps.....gordon bennett, no wonder my bum looks big in this.....
I did manage to get some more creative things done this week - I dragged all the sashiko quilt doings into the front room, where the fire was lit (I lurrrve the open fire) and drew up a couple more blocks, ready for sewing (no pictures - will wait til they're actually sewed). Also made a few more FWQA blocks - spent a wonderful sunday afternoon with my bff making our FWQA blocks but I forgot to take photos while she was here - next time.
I was planning to only use my scrap fabrics once - but that's a bit impractical given there's 111 blocks and a requirement to use up to 5 different reds in one block - I just don't have that many reds:
|From left back: Country farm, Contrary wife,|
front: Chequerboard, Corn and beans, Churn dash
Think I'd best go and do something physical - that'll shake off the miseries.............think the chook shed is just about to get a good clean out..........
til next time
