Real wintery weather arrived here this weekend, perfect for staying inside cooking and sewing, and relaxing with books, magazines and hot cups of tea.
  • Playing with my Liberty again - gosh I love this fabric so much.  This time a needle book for my sister, totally different in style to any of the others I have made.  So far all I have done is cut lots of 2.5" squares and yes there will be some hexis in it.
  • I made another couple of feather blocks, this time downsizing them.
  • Homemade fresh crusty Turkish Bread - recipe from the new Annabel Langbein Winter annual.  It tasted pretty good, and when I make it again and remember to put the salt in, I am sure it will taste even better.  A really easy recipe.
  • New magazines from the library and Earl Grey tea - perfect.
Hope you all had a great weekend too.


  1. crazy wet weather...............but you found all the perfect things to make for a good weekend!

  2. That first magazine in your shot looks so interesting! And yes....I so enjoy that feeling of curling up and taking in all of that warmth that only home can bring when the weather changes. Beautiful loaf up there and that first shot full of that stunning fabric won my heart! Here is to a great start to a fresh new week! Nicole xo

  6. oh the bread looks delicious - will have to give it a try. Last week I made pizzas using the pizza base recipe from the Winter Annual and they were yum!

  7. I am envious of both your Liberty stash and your library! Is there really a magazine devoted to blogging?
