May 11th

We went out last night to the Three Horseshoes and I had crab and John had lemon sole. It was nice – I enjoyed my crab! Today I am cooking beef in red wine followed by some brandy snaps. I have just made these and want to make baskets but I could not get the cooked mixture to mould around a glass to shape it and so have taken the easy way out and rolled them around the handle of a wooden spoon and made cigar shapes. I shall fill them with raspberries and cream.

I have one more square to finish for the Rowan Mystery KAL and then I shall be ready for the new pattern which will be released tomorrow.  Here are three of my squares


I am not looking forward to sewing them together…I hate anything to do with sewing!

This time next week we will be on our way to Scotland – it is about an eight hour journey. Jackson’s eye is better today – open wide and looks bright!  Back tomorrow.
