"Really special" sounds good Ian.

Liri - I like the place clean before I go so I don't ruin all the benefits of a holiday by having to clean when I get back.  Just unpacking the car and doing the washing is plenty and then there's usually grass to cut, weeds to shift and crops to harvest too.

Heading off to patchwork now.  I hope they come up with better projects than last week!

I've just Googled the recipe, Fire Lily - it looks amazing!  The nearest recipe I've made (originally for my daughter's coeliac friend, but loved by all who try it) uses ground almonds instead of flour and sinks in the middle.  Very rich and yummy...

It taste just the way it looks. And you can put chopped nuts in it, some people even put some chili in the mix.

Well done LP.   Have a good trip and a great holiday.

Patchwork was a mix today.   Took in my 9 block panel and was told I have to start quilting in the middle of each block and work out, using the stitching to emphasise the shapes as they are all different and then do the "tram lines" with a curvilinear stitch pattern to decorate.   Not the sort of thing to be doing by machine........    Bums.

Today's options for the fund raiser projects were the same as last time so I chose the least of several evils, decided most fo it is best done by machine and spent ages leafing through about 3' of magazines looking for info and inspiration.  Mind boggling amounts of twee or naff USA stuff.   I shall have to resort to the web.

Came home via a new, to us, supermarket so I could pick up a water butt.   Only one on display and chappy won't be there till tomorrow am.    We'd like a couple more, at least.   

Cold this evening so have a fire lit for a cosy evening.   Stay warm everyone and safe travels to BUsy and OH and anyone else on the move tomorrow.

Snuggling under duvet ... Night night all

I’m still trying to catch up on everyone’s doings, but one thing sticks in my mind. Obelixx, I don’t envy the sewing. I hope your machine has enough room for all the twisting and turning you’ll be needing to do. 

Happy hols to those going away.

Pat E

While you are all listening to morning birdsong and starting to thaw out for your expected spring, we are getting a beginning of yellow leaves on the poplars on the river and orange colours on the maples, ash, etc. it seems our seasons are all changing at the same time. It’s a bit cool this morning. A very nice change to waking to hot dry winds.

night night all. I’m having a lazy start to my day here.

Happy holidays to LilyP and Lizzie

Will be getting on a plane again myself soon - so will get to see Pat’s yellowing leaves myself 🍁 

Seeds are germinating on the windowsill ......oh the excitement 

Pat E

Lovely to have you back Chicky. 

Im really surprised at how the leaves have started turning so soon.

I’m hoping there will still be a bit of sunshine for me - i go in a couple of weeks.  Well 15 more sleeps 🛏 to be precise .....not that I’m counting or anything 

Pat E

I’m sure there’ll be plenty of sun left for you Chicky. There is a bit of rain still working it’s way across from the North West cyclone “Kelvin”, but it should be gone to Tasmania by that time.

Its my mother’s birthday today. She would have been 111. My sister and I have been chatting about it.

Joyce21

Morning all.

Pat, the season seems to have flown past if the leaves are yellowing. The poplars in their autumn colours do make a lovely view down your river.

Chicky,  have a lovely time with chicklet when you see her.
