What I have been up to
Well, obviously I have not been blogging! But I have been doing a lot of blog reading and following - I love Google Reader - and trying to work out if I want to blog and what I really want to blog about.
I have also been busy crafting. I am most proud that I completed Bella's quilt. So here it is, as photographed at But Har Gra:
Lachie had to get a bit of a look in:
The fabric is from the range "Oh Cherry Oh" by Me and My Sister. The quilt is machine and hand quilted. I really enjoyed the hand quilting.
I have been baking bread, after purchasing this great book about bread baking Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking
I love, love, love this book! It really takes so little time, and the delicious aroma of fresh bread fills our house daily, definitely worth a look.
Here is one of the better loaves:
Today was our local school fete, so I baked this lovely Apple Tea Cake from Modern Classics: Book 2 for the cake stall. Hubby wanted to know if we could buy it back, but is was scoffed up pretty quick at the stall!
I am currently working on compiling a set of links to my favorite projects and inspirations - watch this space!
