Weekending








  • My spoils from the Hamilton craft show
  • Some baking -Weetbix Deluxe Slice from this book: Grans Sweet Pantry. it is deliciously caramelly, chocolatey and dare I say, that the weetbix make it healthy.  For a similar recipe try here
  • Sewing - yes I have officially started Mr J's shirt quilt.  60 blocks have been sewn, and there is probably at least another 50 to make.  He is delighted to finally see how it will look, very roughly laid out, and has insisted that some of the blocks be replaced with shirt pockets. I am intending to make the quilt back from fat quarter size pieces of some of the shirt backs, and yes, apparently I have to include a pocket or two there also.
Hoping you all had a fabulous weekend too.
