Right Ladies......if I can do it you can too!!!

Now..... I get back from the USA and the first thing I buy for my machine is a free motion quilting foot!  The only thing I can say to the Stitches group that I left out there is ....GET ON WITH IT!!!! (This means you Mrs N - stop gadding about all over the country and get on with your quilting!!) It may not be too pretty close up but I think for a first attempt it's pretty good and actually is quite easy. With a bit of practice I think I can get some good results. Stitchers - let me know how you get on????

Rib reminder!!!!

Had to spoil everyone and give them a reminding taste of the USA...these ribs are great and available at Waitrose - YUMMY!

Chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache!

These look delicious....and they are!!! Gotta stop spoiling the kids(!) when they come home from school/Uni. Chocolate ganache is really good for you  - it's only double cream and melted calories whatsoever!! YUM!

Shabby Tea room challenge

I need to improve my photo taking techniques but I think you can see clearly enough that this card meets the challenge on this weeks "Shabby Tea Room" Blog!   Colours and pennants/banners/flags!

Anniversary cards

Its a bit dark (my photography!) but I am quite pleased with the idea! Hopefully it will be appreciated later on in the month by the recipients.
