Another quilt and some time in the kitchen

I often say I would have been a great 1950’s housewife. I love to sew and cook, I drive a car from the 50’s (daily!) and adore the fashion from that era.

But here I am, in the present.

I finished my Mum’s quilt…. (insert photo here)…. I haven’t taken any good pics of it yet as the weather has been horrid. So I will when its a bit nicer outside (much better lighting!). I made it from a couple of Marmalade charm packs (By Bonnie and Camille) and Camille’s Dilly Dally pattern (you can find it here).

I have also been in the kitchen a fair bit. I really get the guilty when the kids eat processed foods,, especially since having the Thermomix I can make so many things myself. So we made some ‘Chocolate Jam’ (Nutella), Mixed Berry Jam, a loaf of bread (although we go through it so quickly I’m making a loaf nearly every night!), some delicious sausage rolls and some chocolate chip cookies with milk, dark, white and caramel chocolate chips….Mmmm Delish! as Hamish would say!

I did take some pics of my baking, just to make your mouth water a little bit!!
