At last! a little place to call my own......

For a long while now I have wanted to be able to get the sewing machine out, and leave it out, be able to leave what I started and go back when I had the time, and now finally..........












I have that space, a little desk and bookshelf in our conservatory, yes it will be cold in winter, but there will be plenty of light and nice view of the garden in summer!Don't get me wrong I am not a great machinist, in fact it is quite a while since I have had the machine out, but since watching Kirsty enjoy herself so much, with freehand embroidery I have wanted to have ago, and so with the help of this book by Poppy Treffry...

I highly reccommend this book for anyone wanting to have ago, everything is so easy to follow........ all I need now is the time to practice!!

Grow and Cook Recipes.....

It is such a joy when the new edition of Country Living magazine lands on the doormat! One of the features I am really enjoying is Grow and Cook, which follows Tessa Webb and her friends on their allotments and also includes some lovely simple recipes using their homegrown produce.........






































The butternut squash recipe looks very tasty!
