I have at long last finished our new grandsons quilt. I have no excuses as to why it took so long. I just have to be in the right mood for projects. Creativity is temperamental thing.
A while ago I posted a tutorial on making this pinwheel quilt. You can find it here.
I have just discovered a knitting cafe close by, I really don't know why I've not spotted it before! I popped in to have a look, and of course bought some wool, well it would have been rude not to. I have not come across this make of wool before, if you go on their site there of lots of free patterns. They are written slightly different than I'm used to but I can pop into the cafe anytime for some help. I thought I would start with something easy, so am making this shawl in the Drops wool. It is beautifully soft. Has anyone used this wool or their patterns?
I have planted the peppers I received from the giveaway, so new life will be bursting through the soil soon.....I hope! Cross fingers, arms, legs, eyes and anything else that might help. My family call me Charley 'grim reaper' Dimmock!
I picked the first spinach from my veg plot this week. I just LOVE picking my own produce. I added some peppers this time to make mini omelettes. The recipe is here. I still get excited when something that started as a tiny little seed ends up on my plate.
Today is the beginning of a new term in government, new M.P.s starting, others ending their careers in politics. I hope they all respect the position they have been trusted with and do the best they can for their constituents. On a personal note, I am very pleased to see Caroline Lucas of the Green Party retain her seat, I think I may have to move to Brighton.
