Sunny but cold .I bought a new silk scarf from Accessorize . I'm a scarf person , a silk scarf is just the thing . If my neck is warm I'm warm all over .
Also the time for making pickle . I was disappointed with the red onion chutney I made using a recipe from asda magazine , It was far too sweet. I'll concoct my own recipe next time.
I have had a very busy morning .I made pastry this morning , I left it to rest . When it was time to get rolling I had a visitor .Although my visitor distracted the time table for the morning I didn't really mind .
He came bearing gifts of Bramley apples , Victoria plums .leeks, and runner beans and pears , all from his garden .
It's a rainy day now but I don't mind about that either . I won't be tempted to go into the garden . I have cleaned the kitchen after my baking and now the day is all mine . I intend to sew .
I have offered to knit a couple of childrens jumpers for charity . A bit more of my time spoken for but another good cause .There are so many needy children , I try to do my bit .
I see so many wonderful quilts on the blogs and wish I had more time, but!!
On Thursday afternoons bluebell and myself sew at a friends house . Last week our friend Ann had a show of quilts at her house. She didn't charge an entrance fee but left a dish for a donation ,the donated funds were for the recreation room at her church . She raised £250. I think that was a wonderful effort . You can also read about it on the blog of Tracing Rainbows .Angela of Tracing Rainbows is a minister of the free church where the proceeds of quilt show went .
Well it is now raining heavily , I shall sit with one of my small bakewell tarts and a cup of tea . I know my tarts should have icing on top but
