A Little Bit of Everything


Today I weeded and watered my garden, sewed, and of course, bottled the Worcestershire sauce.

While I was in the garden I discovered the first hint of spring.  I noticed the very first blossom on the peach tree.  Can you see it?

Here is a close-up.

I picked broccoli, bok choy, a lime and some baby spinach.  I used the bok choy, some broccoli and the lime for dinner.

We had salmon grilled with lime and sea salt on potato mash with stir-fried broccoli and bok choy with soy, ginger and lime sauce.

There is still quite a bit of broccoli so will be having that with meals this week.

I bottled the Worcestershire sauce tonight and here is the result.

The residue after straining will go into the compost.

I used an existing oven mitt for a pattern to make a new one.

I cut 2 pieces from some cotton fabric – leftover from a dress that had been unpicked and refashioned.

2 of calico for the lining.

2 pieces from an old towel for the wadding.

Here they are layered together.

The Duke cut a piece of metal edging to help me to keep the quilting in straight lines.

Quilted and stitched together.

All finished apart from binding the edge which is only pinned

I also made another pair of trackpants for Izz and as well as this top.

I have nearly finished a summer skirt and top for her, but will post those photos another day.

  1. We have a little bit of spring here too. A daffodil in the garden! It has been a cold winter as they don’t flower every year!
    How are the oven mitts? Do they stop the heat? Never thought to try and lmake my own.
