Hi guys :)
I finally finished my shrug :) i love it! It fits wonderfully and is lovely and warm, though i am going to add a border around the back and shoulders.
What have i been up to?
First i had the wonderful idea that i wanted to weave something from wicker, haha...yeah that didn't work.
I took apart this old basket, soaked the bits in warm water for 24hrs and got started, but...it failed rather miserably. I won't tell you what happened, or what was said... it cannot be repeated in polite company
.The wood from the basket shall not go to waste though, i have plans for it, so watch this space!
I've been baking some jam thumbprints! They bring so many memories of tea at my great nanas' :)
And some banana brownies! Yummy!
I also got my first harvest of rosemary dried and chopped, yay! I have lots of plans for this little herb :)
I planted out the onions, and they are growing well so far (this is an old photo from the other week, they have sprouted now!) :)
And the leeks are growing wonderfully!
Today i'm going to be watering them with a banana fertiliser, which is just banana peel in water in a jar left to sit for 48hrs.
A few months ago i showed you this book 1001 Country Household Hints by Mary Rose Quigg
This book has been invaluable to me over the years, so i think once a week i'm going to share some of the best hints and tips from the book in a blog post first, then make a page for them on the blog :)
This week there are mostly cleaning hints :)
