Funny things happen while you're away...


The garden was fairly dry when we left but apparently Melbourne had a lot of rain and we've come back to a jungle - like backyard complete with giant zucchinis. The one at the front weighed in at 2.9 kilograms!!  Unfortunately they're not really edible at this size (I've tried!)

I'm working on a few things at the moment. Actually, I just want to plonk myself in front of the sewing machine after my week away, but there is so much else that needs my attention! I'm hoping to finish off a new doll this week, start on a custom order and organise myself for the Crafty Mamas get together on Friday where I'll be teaching doll making for the first time (gulp).

Better get back to it.....

My FIL stuffs them - I think that they are classed as marrow at this size and save the seeds for next year - that is the size of Zucchini you need to save the seeds:)

Great idea Kylie, why didn't I think of that? I'll definitely try both stuffing and seed saving!
