We had our Summer Fair yesterday which went really well but the heat was energy sapping. When I got home yesterday evening I had a cold drink and could only doze until it was time for bed.
This morning I woke up recovered enough to make a little batch of bread. Mmm.....
Don't colours look different in daylight and lamplight?
Some buns for Will's bacon butties -
And a sunflower and pumpkin seed loaf for tea.
I got the ironing all done before it got really hot and then, because we had a surfeit of eggs I made some frittata for lunch which I served with the only fresh green thing in the house - some lettuce from the garden.
(Note to self - go shopping before you get a vitamin deficiency).
A plate of raspberries and nectarines finished the lunch off nicely.
Unfortunately I ate a packet of Doritos and some chocolate whilst I was watching the German Grand Prix but I am going to have a storming week next week (probably).
Sadly I can't show any pictures of my crafting today because it is a surprise for someone who may read this blog.
I did however get quite a bit done last weekend. The girls did some more blocks for the Quilts for Comfort. It's called a square in a square and is a lovely simple block. I just handed them my bag of thirties fabric and told them to pick the colours they wanted.
Sunglasses will have to be supplied I think!
Ben came over to help with the laundry
And then we tested how hard we could hit the saucepans before we made ourselves cry.
When all was quiet I got the strippy quilt out to sandwich it together. Drinks cartons make good weights.
This will have to wait until the weather is a bit cooler though, but I'm patient. It's the process not the product. I'll thoroughly enjoy quilting this when the time comes.
Now I'm going to sit back with a cold drink and read one of my birthday presents:
What a thoughtful present, thank you Sandra - it is so interesting, I love the folklore attached to bees and beekeeping. So, with the temperature dropping to a more pleasant level, the rhythmic thump of John's trainers in the washing machine and the wafting of BBQs from various points around the neighbourhood, I will finish my weekend on a gentle note. I hope your week ahead is a happy one.
