Messy Strawberries

The time came for our first strawberries and cream of the summer and I had mine messy! By messy, I mean, I made Eton Mess, from a recipe I found here. It’s from Delia and it’s super fast and easy. KayCee, (for some strange reason!) doesn’t like cream so […]

Ella and I were having a leisurely walk back from nursery today when we saw our first sign that spring is on it’s way. Ella didn’t want to go near the tree  because she thought there were bees on it! I told her they weren’t bees and […]

Patchwork Quilt

I’ve finished the first patchwork quilt I started about 3 weeks ago and I’m very pleased with it, as is KayCee who brings it down with her in a morning and wraps it around her while she’s waking up! Ella keeps asking when hers is going […]

Bring on the sewing!

I’ve been wanting one for a while but kept asking myself if it was going to be worth it. I mean, they’re not cheap and I worried that I wouldn’t use it enough to justify the price, but yesterday I decided to go for it […]
