We had the most summery feeling spring weekend here.  So here are a few of the things I did this weekend..
  • I finished the first of maybe six Christmas angel ornaments.
  • Picked a bowl of broad beans, however after podding them I only had 250g. 
  • Made brioche for Sunday morning breakfast - the filling this time was Christmas fruit mince.  So far the winning flavour seems to be cinnamon sugar.  I'm going to work on some berry/custard/curd combinations over the next few weekends.
  • A little shopping at our local emporium - which stocks all sorts of crafting, party, hardwear items - these ribbons just cried out for me to buy them.  Hate it when that happens.
  • Discovered that some more little orchids are flowering in my garden
  • Played with felt and Christmas fabrics for a Christmas ornament swap I have joined.
  • Started working my way through a pile of fabulous books on my bedside table.
What did you do this weekend?
Are you planning/planting ready for summer now?
Did you cook/bake anything new?
