This has kept us occupied most days, considering we are not the best at jigsaws.
Now its finished it is staying on display for MONTHS.
Love the jigsaw Winnie - very impressed.
I am trying to make a Rug - with wool and a latch hook - have had it on the go for about 5 years!
It is going to be my Coronavirus Rug!
You have inspired me...
More than five years ago I started a quilt cover, I cut up squares of my sons old clothes, ones that held special memories, with the aim of making myself a 'memory quilt cover'. However, I never got to sew them together. Today I am going to get out my sewing machine and try and get it finished.
Lovely Tracey - looking forward to seeing the final product!
I was asked to share this flapjack recipe.
It has been a staple in my home since I first made it in 2007 thanks to a comic relief cook book. You can add practically anything you want, over the years I've added nuts, honey, chocolate chips, seeds, all sorts of dried fruits and bits and pieces lying around the cupboard - it's always delicious. Have a go and share your pictures and comments. Don't forget to save me a piece...
Made Tracey's flapjacks and Elen's scones! First time I have made cheese scones. Mmmmm delicious!
Finally finished the quilt...it's made up of lots of material from my sons old shirts, clothing and even baby bedding...lots of memories. For a first time quilter, it turned out better than I could have hoped, which means instead of sitting on my bed, as planned, my teenage son has claimed it for himself...
And God is able to make all grace overflow to you so that because you have enough of everything in every way at all times, you will overflow in every good work
