My husband's lovely auntie left a little package on the doorstep yesterday, while I was at work. She didn't leave a note but when I realised that inside there was homemade otacakes, I knew it must have been from her - I recognise that baking anywhere! Delicious, melt in the mouth, crumbly, moist - sorry I've just eaten another one and there's only 3 left now!
I've been working with some linen fabric this week and experimenting with a little embroidery - this is the first of three pincushions I'm making. Really simple little projects, but they look quite effective. The tweed and the linen work quite well together, I thought. I just picked out some colours from the tweed plaid backing and used them in a simple freehand floral design.
Nice to make, so I'm off to embroider the other two. But I must phone lovely Auntie Nan first to say thank you!
