Friday saw me linking up with Cheryll and other like - minded women for a night of crafting deciding I’d work on something for myself after working on various secret projects for others over the past few weeks…..this is what I decided to work on my “Scandinavian Roses” stitchery by Rosalie Quinlan, I just love working on this project and as I said at the beginning this one will be my long term project with no hurrying or pushing to get blocks done and so it has been for me for this BOM if you want to see what everyone else got up to last night just pop over to Cheryll's blog, thanks Cheryll for motivating me to pick up this block and put a few more stitches into it “"
I’ve also found some time to plant myself a small herb garden after my renewed interest in baking and discovering how expensive fresh herbs are I decided to try starting my own herb garden in an unused planter that I’ve had sitting around……I started of with planting the herbs I’m using the most of in my baking at the moment which may extend when I bake more, especially when experimenting with my bread making in the future
And on the subject of baking I experimented with my latest loaf of bread by adding some grated cheese to the mix and let me just say it was super yummy with my home made pea & ham soup on a very chilly afternoon for our lunch, I’ll certainly be experimenting some more maybe with feta, bacon….the list could go on forever LOl….
I also made some yummy scones which we had with lashing of jam and cream….there goes the diet!
I’ve also been busy with some knitting, not my forte as I’m soooooo slow! but I’m enjoying the rhythmic clacking of the needles as I knit and it’s a great pick up/put down project when I want to work on something which doesn’t require much brain power of an evening and I’m loving the variegated wool I’m using for this project/
Finally a finish I can show you as this scrumptious scarf is for me, finally a finish for me and just in time to wear it for this winter, this one is going to be my work scarf as I spend a lot of time outdoors with my job so it should keep me pretty warm…….I have a funny feeling my knitted one in the previous photo will still be getting worked on next winter lol.
Time for me to grab myself another cuppa and start blog surfing and seeing what everyone else got up to last night, I hope you’re all staying toasty warm today and have a lovely weekend
