A little bit of stitching and new recipe

Firstly I would like to thank all the ladies who commented on my previous post about stitching on Hanky Linen...it seemed to be very popular which made me very keen to try some out. I did an order and received some in the post yesterday, and starting stitching one of my designs. It is lovely to work with and I shall be using it in the future....I will still use Calico and the fabric range/design will determine what I will choose.



This little wren design (stitched on the Hanky Linen) I will put in a painted white frame when finished





I found this recipe for Easy Pasta here and it is delicious! Even a winner with the kids!





I arrived home from collecting my eldest boy (something I seem to be doing ALOT in these holidays) to find Jess waiting at the front gates with something in her mouth. On closer inspection we discovered she had a clothes peg...I thought she looked quite cute and went and grabbed the camera



she thought she might do a few poses too! I wonder if I could teach her to hang the washing on the line lol!



And my Protea is out in flower...I just love the black feathery tips on this one!



Have a great weekend!

Hi Lisa, I thought you would like the hanky linen,I love it.
I was thinking the same about Jess and the peg, you should teach him to hang out the washing. He looks very cute.
