This morning I was wandering around my favourite blogs and came across this lovely design.
http://juliekquilts.blogspot.com . With the house in chaos around me I sat happily for an hour and a half working out the design and fabric requirements. I wish I had more time to do this kind of thing.
If I were really organised I would have a project box which I load with 12" x 8" scraps, ready to cut and piece when the mood takes me.
If I were really organised I would wake up to a clean, tidy house every day. I wish I did.
Do fruit flavoured Jelly Beans count in your five-a-day? No - (dammit too late) - wish they did!
Tomorrow the electricity will be off for 7 hours - from 9am to 4pm to do some essential maintenance work in the village. So baking will have to be done today:
Delicious Magazine It is made with Ovaltine and the recipe is actually for two 20cm round cake tins, but mine are a bit smaller than that so I decided to make individual ones. There was enough for 18 plus a little left over which I put in my lovely oval tin (bought when I made cakes for the WI market some 35 years ago). I'll put the frosting on tomorrow because I don't need electricity to mix that of course.
Look what I found when I wasn't looking!
So now it is time to get ready for work - I wish I could spend just a bit longer with my fabrics........
