Did a fun thing on the weekend - went to a 'crafternoon' organised by a friend of mine. Perhaps you've been to one too? My friend who hosted it made lunch and then the four of us worked around her dining room table on different craft projects - two of us made cards, someone knitted, someone else embroidered. And it was really nice. I made a cake halfway through the afternoon, someone else made some cookies and so we broke for coffee and nibbles and then resumed our crafting. And I couldn't help thinking that this was something that women have probably been meeting together to do for a very long time. But probably not to the background music of Morrissey, before you think I'm overdoing the retro thing a little too much :)
I was not thrilled with the cards I made. One I gave away that night to a nephew turning two. One of my crafting buddies suggested I give the second card I made to someone I didn't like! The third one, above, I kinda like.
Also, a moody-black-and-white-Elizabeth-David-omlette-and-a-glass-of-wine shot of some eggs I took on Friday, getting into domestic goddess (!) mode for Saturday, and finally, a cheery yellow quince who is going into the pot for crumble tonight.
