I should probably mention that it looks much richer/has a lot more jewel tones about it than I've managed to capture in these photographs.
There's been a lot more sewing than there has been knitting this week. Following JennyO's lead, I'm making little drawstring project bags with what's leftover from my market bag fabric.
In an attempt to get a handle on things, I took stock of the baking cupboard and discovered there's such a thing as too sweet...
"Oh noes, what do I do?" Why, bake something, of course!
I began with chelli-tinkerbelli's cake (moist dark choc cake) for Wednesday's daytime knitting which was at Mel's owing to this week being half term.
Wednesday was good all around cos after knitting at Mel's, Sarah, B and I went on a lightning quick trip to the U.S. of A.! Honest, we did. I'll leave you working on that one :-)
Thursday was a day for success. I finally succeeded at the perfect shortbread round. That's right folks! After years of tweaking I've arrived at perfection and it's simply...perfect. Or will be once I sort my silicon bakeware vs. oven temps issues.
I took one round over to knit night at Nicola's and between us, S and I are determined to get through t'other.
And now it's Friday which means more sewing (with Debs) and a little knitting; if I'm lucky. Don't yet know what we're doing this weekend - I'm waiting for a quote from the mover who was here to give an estimate at 8:17 this morning - but have a sneaking suspicion it'll involve packing.
