Where do the days disappear to?
It is over a month since we have done a post. We are naughty bloggers.
But we have been sewing up a storm. We have committed to have a stand at a new local craft market. It is at Karingal Place and should be a lot of fun. We have been making cushions, table runners, small quilts, pincushions, aprons, potholders, needlebooks, journal covers and cat softies. We will also be doing a demo of hand piecing, applique and quilting so it will be a great way to promote our business and classes. As it will be our first time there, we have no idea what to expect so it is exhilerating and scary all at the same time.
Masterchef has a lot to answer for!!!! We don't actually watch it but a couple of weeks ago in their promotion they talked about scones. Now my husband adores homemade scones so he has been nagging me since to make some. I don't have time to make scones and said so in one of my classes. One of the girls said, "I will bring some next week and they are the easiest scones you will ever mke." She bought them today with the jam and cream to go on top and they were delicious and then she told us the secret. "Buy a box of CWA scone mix and add water." She always has one in the pantry for unexpected guests. Well guess what is on my shopping list. Do you have a favourite stand by for "just passing, thought we'd drop ins". My mother's was Sao biscuits with tomato and cheese.
