Weekending








Labour Weekend at home with my family. Lot of reading, fine weather and time spent relaxing. Family movie night with pizza made by Miss B and Mr J.  The Scout scrubbed the house exterior.  I planted part of the vegetable garden, so far I have planted a Sweet 100 cherry tomato (our favourite) a self sown tomato seedling, which fingers crossed, is one of the black cherry tomatoes I grew last year, lettuce, beetroot,  a Lebanese cucumber and beans.  Still to go in (after I buy them) are capsicum, courgette, basil and some more African marigolds for deterring pests.
  • A leisurely Sunday breakfast - cinnamon roll brioche, fresh from the oven with a vanilla latte.
  • Happy mail from my friend Deb , recently returned from a trip to New York and Hawaii, with some new DS fabrics for me. The top ones are from her Sweet Ruby range which has just been released,
  • A little creative sewing - I love how this paper pieced word looks, though it was rather fiddly to do. A few of my favourite fabrics - now to decide what I turn it into. Create pattern from here.
  • A finish of sorts, that black and ivory paper piecing I showed last week, has turned into the Black Knight, I still have the Ivory Knight to make.  These will be used in a cushion for Miss B, my chess champ. Many thanks to the very talented Juliet of TartanKiwi, for designing this pattern for me.
Hoping you all had a fabulous weekend too.  Enjoy the week ahead.

  1. Ahhhh, I love brioche! But don't have a recipe - would love to know how you make yours. There was a local café that used to make a berry brioche - but when they sold the business they took the recipe with them! xo
