I am doing quotes that I like as a personal project. I don't want to over think the project. I just want to do it. I want to basically mess around with quotes and words that I like. Some quotes mean more to me than others but I really don't want to discuss it all. I just want to share the quotes without an explanation.
I sewed this pencil case last weekend. Made one for my brother as well. Don't expect him to use it but I just wanted to sew him something for part of his birthday present. I tie dyed the fabric probably last year and still have a bit more to use. I love dyeing fabric and yarn. I found these pens when going through some old boxes belonging to me at my parents'. Knew they needed a new home so I made a pencil case specially for them.
I am going to try to sew something today. I'm a bit wrecked, it was a long week, but a good one.
P.S. Mustard turned out grand. I am going to try messing around with the recipe and other recipes.
Made the courgette loaf by Nigel Slater again. This time I skipped adding the apple and raisins. Didn't have either. I probably added more courgette because I had it and wanted to use it. I didn't have just raisins. I had a bag of mixed fruit for Christmas cake making. I felt citrus peel would have spoiled the party so I skipped it and didn't feel like going to the shop. I like using up what I have the most in cooking and baking. I also like adding more of what I like, so I added more cinnamon. I put in almost a teaspoon. Happy enough with it. Even John now likes courgette loaf/zucchini bread. (just making a note of what I did, I often change recipes around slightly and then forget what I did then wistfully stare out the window and try to remember what did I do???)
