Sewing Saturday & this week

Today I sewed up all the Amy Butler Soul blossom squares that I had. I need many many more for what I have in mind.
And the reason I sewed all of these this morning - my sweet darling kitty woke me at 5:00am. Thank you very much! It was so early, not even the chickens were up and about. They are becoming good at laying - we've had 2 eggs a day for the past 2 days.
Some of which I put to good use last night. I made a berry crumble cake. And when I went to serve it, I realised I had no ready made custard in the fridge. So I pulled out the eggs and milk and made my own in the thermomix. 7 minutes, no stirring, and deliciously perfect custard. Mmmm.
This week we planted the veges. We've got spinach, beans, peas, beetroot, chilli, capsicum, shallots, tomato, pumpkin and rhubarb. I hope they all survive.
And last but not least - look what my sweet girl made for me in Manual Arts. It's so cute and I love it
It's the first day of school holidays and I'm still on mummy taxi duty. Can't wait to get to bed tonight and get into relax mode.

Have a great weekend - whatever you may be doing,
