  • these chopped  beetroot from my garden were turned into this divinely moist Chocolate Beetroot Brownie using this recipe
  • a small posy of zinnias from my garden - not quite the long stemmed plants I was hoping for, but still there are flowers in my house from my garden
  • finalising the layout for my Jacob's Ladder Quilt - I think this is the hardest part, making sure the colours are balanced and not too many of the same together in the scrappy blocks.
  • starting the sewing together of the above mentioned blocks
  • flowering in my garden - the Scadoxus Fireball Lily
  • the shirt quilt has been gifted to Mr J - his reaction  was  "yay my quilt, it's better than I thought it would be"
Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend.
