Five things…

I’ve been neglecting my blog lately!  I have loads of ideas for posts and then don’t have the time and the moment passes.  So here’s 5 things that have happened lately:

1 I made this gorgeous Momoyama Bag.  Burnice and I had bought the kit years ago at Sandown Quilt show, so she came over recently and we cut it out together.  Goodness, it wasn’t easy!! But is sewed together pretty easily.  The kit with these gorgeous Japanese style fabrics was from Step by Step Patchwork Centre, and the bag was originally in this book.

2 I didn’t carve the pumpkin this year – instead I made this yummy pumpkin curry!  Here’s the recipe.  Ooops!  I’ve just realised that I forgot to put the chickpeas in it!!  It still tasted good, and I have 2 more dinners I have frozen for later.

3 I made a skirt!  It’s from Kwik Sew pattern.  I used a remnant I have had for years!  It’s a needlecord with these lovely embroidered net flowers.  I’m really pleased with it.  I don’t usually wear skirts as I can never get a proper fit.  This one does!

4 Halloween cup of coffee at Cafe Latte, how cool!

5 You’ll have heard about our great storm we had on Sunday night.  Here’s what happened to my greenhouse!  Unluckily there were already some panes of glass missing, and the wind must have whooshed in and around and exploded these panes out!  The pieces of glass went all the way down the steps!



I will link this post up to Rock Your World Friday over on Virginia’s blog
