It's been a bit busy round here this week. There's been a lot of veg' picking and more chutney making. I made another batch using just courgettes, but left it to cook longer and added a bit more chilli. Tastes even better this time. Also loving the sweet peas and dahlias that I pick every morning. Just popped in a jug they really cheer the kitchen up.
Eldest girl has been at home for the last year after finishing uni' and is off to London for a year at Law school. She went flat hunting last week and found a lovely place that's ready to move into this weekend! So there's been a flurry of laundry, list making and digging out of all the STUFF that she'll need again. I'm sure it must be easier with boys, they don't seem to need half as much stuff as girls!
As a quick house warming present I dug out some crochet blocks that I made a couple of years ago and joined them together to make a cushion cover. It was only when I'd finished I remembered that one of them has a red second round, before I'd changed to doing the rest in ivory. Rats!! Of course I should undo it and make another one, but since no-one else even noticed I'm not going to bother. The back is just a big granny square in matching colours. hopefully it will be done by Saturday.
Also hoping to go to the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham this week, if my ankle holds out. It has been quite painful recently and apparently some of the pins are starting to work their way out. I'm going back to hospital to have the metalwork removed soon which I'm not looking forward to, but I guess it will give me time to do some crochet. Here's a (not very good) pic of the x-ray, when it was first done.
Sorry if that's put you off your breakfast, but I find it quite fascinating how "low tech" it is, like bits of meccano!
