Not that I’ve had a lemon of a week, more of that later. I didn’t mention that in the end on that mega hit day I received 622 hits in total. Woo hoo my head is spinning. I’ve had nothing like that since but the daily total is up. I know it shouldn’t matter but to me it is precious and special and wonderful. More than that I have had so many lovely comments and messages and such positive feedback. Its better than medicine to me I feel so good on it my dear sweet bloggy chums. I love to meet new people when they arrive and it gets me seeing new blogs too with fabulous things to teach me. I am still new at this and making friends has been the best bit. After all that and the damp squib that was the fair I ventured into Folksy land. Yep the usual Lou “ Huh it’ll probably come to nothing” ( say that in your head with Eyore voice) Well how wrong was I? Last night not one but two sales and one of them was for multiple items!!!!! So this morning guess what I have done? Packed and shipped my things to the punters.
A lucky lady, I know. I've felt a bit like I was in the wilderness recently, not really belonging and with not much direction. This and you have started a change of all that so thank you sincerely from me.
Fresh with the success of the elderflower cordial( still haven’t wiped it off my sandals) I fancied a go at making lemonade and it has been so hot. So I nicked Mr H’s G and T lemons and went to town.
Whizz with half litre of water ( just under a pint) and 140g sugar. It said to use caster but I only had granulated and it was fine.
Then you strain it and add another half litre of water et voila!!
It was yummy and so easy I will definitely do it again.
You will be pleased to know that I replaced Mr H’s lemons. Gin and tonic at home time restored.
Help yourself to a sneaky peak of the next project on the hook. A granny jacket made from Dale Svale yarn, 50% cotton ,40% acrylic and 10% silk i got it here. A lovely drapey soft yarn. I’m not really a clothing maker (never really goes well) but I thought I’d give it a go. The general Idea is to make 2 granny hexes and sew them together to make a boxy jacket. I have seen baby jackets done this way and saw the idea for an adult version here. I will post more as I get into it. Off into the garden now to do a little in fact.
