Snippets of life


I received this week some very beautiful hand dyed cotton from Melissa at Rainbow Made. I'm knitting up some dishcloths using this famous pattern.






My heart flutters when I look at this photo.



We have so many tomatoes this year. These ones are partially oven dried and sitting in olive oil for sandwiches, salads, pasta etc.


                                                 The love affair with books continues.



Have you tried achachas yet? They're really good! A little like a mangosteen in flavour and Australian grown. We've been getting them at an Asian market  where everything is fresh and cheap.

Today I'm working on a dress for an out of sorts 6 year old, knitting dishcloths, then there is that unfinished painting, embroidery and pattern to write up. Wish me luck!

pop any surplus tomatoes in the freezer, skin on and make sauce in the winter.

What a wonderful glimpse into your day and the activities you do. Had never heard of achachas. They sound delicious. The tomatoes make me look forward to summer (it's winter here).
