I've Done It

Remember this? It's my piece of fabric for the round robin we are doing in Spectrum. It was such a small piece of fabric that I felt it needed to be made bigger. It took some courage to actually take the rotary cutter to it and cut up someone else's work.

But I finally managed it. I'm still tempted to add some stitching to it but I'm going to leave that to the next person.

I have been doing quite a bit of baking lately, these are Hazelnut Praline muffins that I made for the social stitchers yesterday.

For Neil's birthday I made some Millionaires' Shortbread but I wasn't happy with it. I found another recipe and made some so that we can have a taste test today, so fingers crossed.

I'm still walking in the mornings and who wouldn't when they are as beautiful as they have been. Don't the swans look graceful.

There is one nesting swan.

I finally managed to get a photo of the heron. He's just there in the middle of the picture.

Well done on being brave and cutting into the work!
That looks like a beautiful place to walk.

You've made a great job of the cutting and re-piecing. Such a lovely place to walk and nice to have it close by.

Your morning walks look great - Ferry Meadows is a wonderfully peaceful place to go - love the heron. It will be interesting to see what a future lady does with your round robin piece.
Oooh the cakes are all lovely.

Challenge piece is looking good. When you find the perfect Millionaires shortbread recipe, please can I have it, I'm determined to have a go at making it but I don't want a disastrous result! X
