There's always somebody who can't wait! Look pikelets again. You'd be correct in thinking these are the only things I make. I actually admit to enjoying making them. Yes there is one thing in the kitchen I do enjoy after all.
I was reading a blog called little suitcase this morning. It's a new one I've found and am thoroughly enjoying. At the moment she is finding 30 ways to make life more enjoyable. Today it's "make things special". Such a lovely idea. Anyway she says to use the special things more often. This prompted our afternoon tea with Gran as the invited guest.
We need to use the special table cloth that I was given last week from my aunt. I absolutely love it. It might be from Venice we think. Gran and Grandad travelled there many years ago. Unfortunately it's machine made, but very difficult to tell. Very nice all the same.
And also this lovely tray cloth/hand towel. I'm never putting this in our bathroom!! The littlest daughter frequents this room and makes a dreadful mess every time. Hmmm. No this is for special occasions like afternoon teas.
Doesn't it all look very pretty and girly? It's nice to play ladies at times. I must say the little ladies weren't very ladylike at all. There were whole pikelets stuffed in ones mouth even! Horrors. Could I possibly pour you a cup of tea whilst you visit?
I've been working on this pillow case too. It's like the pillow case nightie I made but sideways of course. I really must get on with the jolly quilt and stop these little projects for a while. I'm not looking forward to all the cutting out, that's all.
I think the little bird is my very favourite part of this applique. So cute and simple. Imagine having legs that slender and long!
Does anybody know anything about beetroot? How will I know when to pick them? They look wonderfully woolly up top, but who knows what's happening in the engine room?
One good thing about all this rain we've been having is that the veggie garden really takes off. The peas really are reaching for the sky. I can't wait to pick one. They are the best if you ask me. I really must sort out the other patches so I can grow some more vegetables. The sun is really trying to break through the clouds this afternoon. Maybe tomorrow will be lovely again.
