When I lived in France, I absolutely adored seeing pretty boxes of pastel coloured macarons, now I can’t just nip round the corner to buy some I decided it was time to try making them. Especially as my lovely sil posted a pretty photo of some she bought in NY city, next time I am definitely doing some wilder colours.
So today in the café we have pretty pink macarons with bramble jelly filling (home-made of course).
They been thoroughly tested already
Its wet and wild outside, definitely time to think about winter woollies, this weekend I knitted a cowl and hat as someone had none, tragedy to live in a knitters house and have no woolly hat
I used some gorgeous aran from both Old Maiden Aunt and Babylonglegs, they match perfectly.
So macarons, some knitting, a little cutting and sewing in the café today, see you at 12.30
First of all no cafe tomorrow as they are getting a ladies toilet refit.
Next up I am taking part in the Fall for Cotton sew-along, some info on it here.
I am sewing a skirt in some cord, photos coming up soon.
Today there will be butterfly cakes with clotted cream and homemade lemon curd at the café. Lots of sewing and knitting chat going on, see you later
So anyone who knows me knows that I have a little shoe collection, justifying a new pair of shoes is tough.
These just had to come home with me, so in order to justify them I am going to see how many different outfits I can wear them with.
This week we had this, hand-made dress and hand-knitted cashmere cardi
mood dress and shoes
and this, hand-made skirt and vintage pringle cardi
Now I have to see what else I can come up with for them
There has been some new bags sewn this week, Alfie thinks he makes a good model, what do you think.
