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.
