I didn’t quite get my usual weekend post up, so here it is on Monday night instead!
This weekend marked the end of the school holidays, so yesterday was a day for getting clothes, bags and books in order. Not to mention children and husbands. Doing the grocery shop (and spending an ridiculous amount of money on food), and a little baking to fill the tins so we can have a sweet snack with our packed lunches (and maybe, just maybe, at night when curled up on the couch with a cup of tea…). Before I knew it, it was Monday morning and the usual blur which marks the start of the week was upon us.
Yesterday I finished up a project Ive been working on for some time. It turned out really nicely. Here’s a couple of shots as I sewed the last few details in place:Once Ive got some ‘proper’ photos Ill share the whole project with you…Maia had her friend over, and because it was raining, we spent the afternoon sewing. Which was a lot of fun… well, it was fun, but it was hard work to be the sewing instructor to two six year olds, what with re-threading needles and fixing up tangles 🙂 Lets just say there wasn’t time to get much else done – but they were so proud of the end results…The project came from a sewing book called Sew together, Grow together. I’ll be giving a full review of the book (and giving a copy away) once we have had a chance to complete a few more of the projects, so keep an eye out for that in the next week or so.
Finally, since this is a random post anyway (I know you guys put up with that a lot!), we made – and by ‘we’, I have to confess right up front, I mean my husband (because I know Ill get pulled up on this as soon as he reads this post) these gorgeous scones:
If you enjoy a batch of fresh scones straight from the oven – perfect weekend afternoon food in my opinion – do give them a try:
If the photo looks a little blurry click on it and you’ll get a full screen shot. Straight from the Edmonds Cookery Book (a New Zealand baking icon), and VERY tasty!
How was your weekend? What did you get up to? xo Janette
