Today's lunch. Freshly made strawberry jam on freshly made bread. I found the bargain of the year last week. 1kg bags of frozen strawberries for only $4!! I'm off to buy some more next week. Seven lovely jars are sitting in my storage cupboard now. Delish!
And look what arrived in my letter box today...
I won a special prize last week at Ted and Bunny's blog. How exciting is that? I need lots of these little doilies and mats for a bed cover I'm planning to make for our bed. I have quite a growing pile of them now. They are looking very pretty on our buffet in the meantime.
Just look at the beautiful work(wo)manship. These surely must have taken ages to make. My grandmother and great grandmother used to make such things too. I am quite sure I would not have the patience to be a doily maker.
This one has a cloth backing and would look lovely on a dresser.
And this square one is absolutely wonderful. I love the dots scattered around it. It reminds me of a butterfly.
Thank you so very much Mrs Ted and Bunny! I will enjoy using these precious doilies in my bed cover. Still not sure how I'm going to do it, but do it I shall.
