It was a getting- ready- to -embrace Autumn kind of weekend. A slow cooker using, apple photographing, thinking about blackberry crumble kind of weekend. A nuts and berries harvest thoughts, nesting, homemaking, quilt square admiring, hunkering down kind of a weekend. You know the kind I mean?
And now it's Monday and I have the treat of a chocolate moustache to look forward to (Thought it sort of went with my Western checked shirt, so I decided to get the picture, then just at the last minute I accidentally broke the stick off. ..) It came to me from Deb - thank you! - in a gorgeous quilt square parcel. A September quilt square! Hooray! The Friendship Square swap has been running for some months now and I've been so looking forward to it being my turn. I can't deny it. I've chosen neutral colours for my squares, creams and linens, and I have a plan for a white bedroom I know of. I'm thinking about embroidering the names of everyone involved, each on their own block, to remember.
We did some Autumn eating too. Time for the slow cooker! and a recipe from my other Deb: Deb Turtle's Crockpot Lasgana Soup, which we made on Saturday and which was every bit as delicious as she promised it would be. Perfect for this time of year and right through the winter. Next I need to do something with those shiny red apples. Apple tart? crumble? an upside down cake?
But not before I've given everyone a wave this Monday and wished you a good week. Maybe you'll wave back?
