It's been 9 whole days since my last post and I have lots to share from my little world. We have just come back from a long weekend in the south west enjoying fresh country air, beautiful autumn scenery, and family time. I snuck away with my mother in law to this beautiful gourmet food and gifts shop. I started having heart palpitations as soon as we walked in. They have all sorts of imported goodies from around the world. I love the way that the makers of home and hand made preserves bottle everything so beautifully. My MIL even bought a few jars of who knows what strictly for the containers. I definitely sit down and savor food more when you can see how much love has been put into it. If you are ever in Busselton, head to Cape Kitchen in Fig Tree Lane and get ready to salivate. I bought a few treats including these sweet sugars hearts.
I am not sure what I plan on doing with them but I couldn't resist. I also picked up a boat load of these muffin cups from the shop next door. I have made them in the past, a rather fiddly exercise. I did not realize that the ones you buy are heated to keep their form. They were practically giving them away so I stocked up. I need to bake something to get rid of the obscene amount of chocolate still in this house. Perhaps some banana muffins with an egg squished into the center? Mmmmm.
The most exciting though was this book bought for me, Sewing Clothes Kids Love by Nancy Langdon. The purpose of the shopping trip was to show me this book my MIL thought I might like. Oh, I like!
These are just a few of the gorgeous projects;
I am going to keep it simple to start though and attempt these leggings;
The start of this nine day break was some of the most fun I've had in ages. It deserves it's very own post though. Back soon on that one. Hope you all had an enjoyable break.
