Scenes from my Week






From the kitchen
  • freshly picked Rhubarb,  that got turned into the Rhubarb Crostata from this post
From the garden
  • There is not much flowering at present so am loving the pendulous blooms of my Fuchsia boliviana
From the sewing room
  • a pile of wooden bobbins - they are about 8" long, and have a metal end.  Does anyone know what they would have been used for - I think maybe lacemaking or weaving, but the colours of the threads used have me wondering if it may have been for something else - that orange is bright!!
  • a sneak peak of some of the sewing I am doing for Mum's birthday quilt.
What has been happening in your week?

  3. The bobbins look like carrots to me! I wonder if someone was using them as a decoration. I will e-mail re the rhubarb, I like your idea!

  5. Your wooden bobbins look so interesting and such a bright orange, pretty with their green and metal ends! Very tactile!

  6. Those bobbins are interesting, did you find out what they were used for? And, a quick question about rhubarb- is there a green rhubarb variety and is it edible?
