Firstly today I must give a special welcome to a new reader to my blog - my daughter yay!!! She has just been connected up to the internet at Uni, which is great. I kind of regard the blog as an online diary so it will be lovely for her to see what I am up to!
Secondly today I want to thank Sue(Mrs Twins) for her friendship and guidance through blogland, and she mentioned me yesterday which was an honour and a surprise. So thank you Sue.
Last night I was able to concentrate on my baby cot blanket but because it is quite a dense pattern progress feels quite slow - I seem to be crocheting for Britain, but its not growing as quickly as would like, never mind, slow and steady wins the race!
This week is rather busy for me, its a shame when work gets in the way of creativity!!!!!!!!! Hopefully I will snatch the odd half hour here and there to do some hooking.
I have also been trying to prepare a little more for Christmas and the other day the house was filled with the aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon when I made red cabbage to go with our Christmas dinner
I love how pretty a red cabbage is when you cut into it and the random patterns that are produced are lovely.
I mixed this in with the onions, garlic, apples, spices, sugar and vinegar
I had to squash it down to get the lid on - after long slow cooking you get a lovely squidy georgous smelling dish, ready to be frozen for Christmas
The next thing on the list is chestnuts
I bought these this morning, they are a bit fiddly to do, but worth the effort, then they can be popped into the freezer too! They will make great stuffing - yummy!
Hoepfully later on in the week I will have a blanket update - I am not in love with this project yet but I am hopeful that once I start to make the edging it will come into its own and have a ta dah moment!
