Well, not only is today a good day because I have the day off, but I also received my Garden Swap package from Peta-Jane – all the way from sunny Australia.
Here’s the obligatory before shot……
And, of course, the after……
We have a fantastic purple apron, with flowers sewn on (is that applique?) a calico shopping bag that Peta-Jane literally shed blood over (now that’s devotion to the cause!) a cute card with flowerpot buttons sewn on, what I think are some coloured stencils to make icing sugar shapes on cake (P-J help me out here!) and cute little carry case right at the top of the picture. Peta-Jane I am beyond thrilled and now terrified I won’t match up. Thanks also must go to Kerry at Pennydog for organising the swap in the first place!
In other news, I have finished my wristwarmers! Very simple pattern and they knitted up very quickly. Excuse the awful photo!
God , I look gormless!
Also, just a quick clarification to the soda bread recipe – it was indeed Bicarb of Soda, but the recipe actually requires 450g of flour, not 400g. I now plan to spend the next couple of days knitting like a demon, to try and get my next project done in time!
