Pictures of the food in no particular order are Granmas fruit loaf best served with a pot of tea, Blueberry muffins, Spinach and nutmeg muffins (me not having a sweet tooth so I found these were so delicious)and Sri Lankan fish balls of which I made about 30 and only ate them all the same afternoon they are so very good.
I have been making some more things this month, the food pictures were taken for my cook book and another bag for millie's nursery bits. I have finally brought myself a second hand sewing machine and ordered some patterns, which include matching mother and daughter aprons (how adorable) Roman blinds and a selection of animals, for example a rag dolly and a big tortoise you can sit on! So hopefully once i get going as well as my cards I can actully get a little stall going to start selling some pieces, No more blood on the patchworks quilts from labouring away with my poor fingers!

Not even nearlly finished this is just a pre mock made up with pins, still needs the frills added
Started to have a make time burst, made a patch work blanket with Roo's name embriodered on it, then started to make a dress for Roo out of an old pair of jeans. The frills that have not been added yet actually came from material used to make my mum's maternity nightdresses from when she pregnant with me so the material must be about 34 years old now.
Then made Millie a drwastring bag for her PE kit for daycare out of an old pair of my trousers!
