My Garden

I have just finished stitching the first block of 'My Garden' the nine part block of the month Lynette Anderson  is giving away free with the purchase of a delightful hand-painted wooden button.  If you would like to join in the fun Homespun & Beautiful still has places available. I know this cute little quilt is going to very popular.

Just a Few

I spent the day clean out the bookcase that holds my collection of magazines. I have collected every issue of Homespun and Country Threads plus loads of Handmade, Quilters Companion......the list goes on!!!!
I'm not game to add up how much I have spent on magazines but I can't help myself.

Look whose cooking

Proof, I do know where the kitchen is, loll!!! My DH does most, if not all of the cooking but I thought I would make some scones. Easy I thought, I can do this. Mix SR flour with icing sugar, make a well, pour cream in the middle then make a dough, roll out, cut out scones then place in oven. Wrong.....I made rock cakes instead. We still ate 'em.

I couldn't find the scone cutter, so I used a measuring cup instead
this is how they should look,  (Lorraine's scones)
I don't know what I did wrong - must have been the oven.
Mine were so bad I forgot (embarrassed) to take a photo.
