Cooking and French Knots!

3rd April 2015

My day started with a visit from a friend which was great, then another knock on the door, sending Jack into a barking frenzy, it was a man from the florist delivering.....

.....a BEAUTIFUL Easter bouquet  complete with three chocolate eggs!


A lovely surprise from my son, made my day.

:::::

Made a fish pie, a real comfort meal for me....


.....and a couple for the freezer....

....while I was waiting for the potatoes to cook I made cranberry flapjacks, simply because I needed to use up some dried cranberries.....


.....rather good, if I say so myself! I make all sorts of flapjacks, fig/ginger being my favourite!

This is a good recipe and has never failed me....

200g of butter/Flora, 
200g Demerera sugar 
200g honey or syrup
400g oats
plus anything you fancy, e.g. raisins, apricots, figs etc

Melt fat, sugar and syrup in a pan and when melted add the rest of the ingredients, cook in a tray for 15/20 mins at 180 delicious and simple!!

Up to my loft space and decided to finish ......


....I used my tree wooden block to print on silk and stitched glass beads, about 6 months ago!!

I am going to make a set of 4 framed trees, one for each season, this is Spring Blossom....

...found some pink threads....


....and happily stitched french knots while listening to an audio book....


...quite pleased with the effect....
