Well it's been a while since I did a weekending post, but here's what I got up to this weekend.
  • relaxing on Friday night, after a somewhat manic week at work - a new magazine and a glass of chardonnay, the perfect way to start the weekend
  • in the garden - lots of weeding, cutting back and planting new plants  Pleased to see my passionfruit vine has started flowering, lots more buds on it too, here's hoping I get a bumper crop after last years rather drastic pruning gave me a total of about 12 fruit.
  • in the sewing room - finally I have made a start on the final Christmas placemat , so nice to be sewing again.  
  • in the kitchen - this recipe for school (and work) lunchbox treats
Wishing you all a fabulous week ahead,


  1. Looks like a nice mix for the weekend.......especially that cake! Yum :-) Cool Santa.

  2. Its always good to relax with a new magazine, particularly a Christmas edition. The cake looks delicious, mouth watering.

  3. Sounds like a good one! Hope that you enjoyed the sewing, it is a beautiful piece! xx

  4. Lovely placemat, you have quite a knack for making those fabrics look really 'Christmas-y'. Good old weetbix, haven't made that slice for years! Thanx for the link, I've printed out your recipe and will make it when Olive comes to play!

  5. What a lovely way to start a Monday Julie! Everything here looks delightful! Isn't that passionfruit flower beautiful!? Will you cook with your passionfruit or just savour their juicy flavour?!

  6. Great work on Father Christmas!

  7. What a great weekend. Looking forward to seeing your collection of placemats all done and ready for use! As for the passionfruit! So jealous!

  8. Like the Santa...and the cake looks good :)

  9. I love the blooms on your passion-fruit.
