When I went shopping to buy the fleece for my niece's windcheater I also saw the same print in a cotton - a cheap, not very nice quality cotton but I suspect my niece will only have eyes for the princesses. I bought half a metre and that gave me enough to make this - another of my favourite bags!
And I have enough leftover to get 6 x 6.5" squares out of the scraps featuring the princess for a charity quilt. I also have a few pictures of the fleece princesses left over and I am planning a little experiment with them later when I have time!!!
I went out and raided my garden today. First I have picked all the remaining mandarins off my tree
They look great but they are mostly pretty small. here they are - one of the biggest and one of the smallest sitting on my iphone.
The taste great but there are one or two pips in EACH tiny segment so that makes them really hard to eat! Bummer. So, what to do with them? I looked for and found a cake recipe that uses the whole mandarins but only about 300g of them. That is just a fraction of what I have picked. I refuse to make marmalade firstly I don't like it and secondly I don't want to have to take out all the seeds. I juiced a cereal bowl-full and ended up with 250ml of juice
and this many seeds! Hmmmm. Still, the juice was yummy!
I also managed to pick a lovely bunch of daffodils - so nice to be able to grow these in my won garden! They just look so cheerful!
Here's hoping I get a little sewing in today as well..........till next time.....Happy stitching!
