It's been a rather rainy day here! So much for my initial plan of pottering in the garden between the predicted light showers!! I did harvest some more potatoes for my tea and picked some lettuce and beetroot leaves.
I drizzled them with some of my home made chive flower vinegar. It's such a pretty pink colour! It was a simple but delicious side salad 😋
I had some sorry looking apples left lurking in the fruit bowl. No idea what variety but they were rather small. I gently poached them with a tiny bit of sugar. That's my dessert tonight sorted with some Alpro custard! 😋 I didn't want to waste the peelings so I've started a batch of home made apple cider vinegar. Never tried to make it before so we'll see if it works! It's just apple peelings, sugar and water. Free vinegar, so worth a try! (loads of instructions on Pinterest)
I rounded up the finished hexagon flowers I've made this week to stitch together and join them to the quilt. Each flower takes about 40 minutes to make so I usually make one a night while I'm watching something on tv in the evening. I'm just making this for fun and to use up fabric scraps but in my head I'm imagining wrapping up my future grandchildren and saying things like 'Can you find the red bus?' 😍
Sue from A Smaller and Simpler Life has sparked an idea for a plan to get myself organised for the next 7 weeks. Watch this space 😉
