Well it's been busy. Before Christmas I was ill, so I had a little rush on, finishing presents. This one for my friend Amanda, who I work with. (little felt ice skates were so wonderful to make, an idea from Montessouri by Hand). The heart was a little extra for her tree, and the X-stitch was from here and was particularly apt for her (I've since learned that it made her cry, with joy hopefully!!).
Running a Craft afternoon at my Church for the children while the parents helped making 400 Christingles. It was great fun. My two were guinea pigs....
UP at the crack of dawn? Get sewing young man....
C loves stuffing....
Broccoli and Stilton Soup, Cheese Sauce
It's really, really simple and I'm having it for tea.
First of all fry 3 chopped salad onions in garlic oil.
Add 500g frozen broccoli, together with 1 tsp of dried thyme
Crumble in Stilton....add 800ml hot vegetable stock.
Cook for 5 minutes, liquidize and serve with a little red chilli crumbled on top.
Split Pea and Ham Soup
I have made this before and it's gorgeous. It's also low fat which means it tastes better!!!!
Now that all our guests have gone, the tree is down and things are getting back to normal. I'm already planning what my next sewing project is going to be. I have a few birthdays coming up so better start thinking! (especially as one of them is a big one...you know who you are ;-) )
