Oh well...Spring didn't last long!

I've been pretty quiet recently...the weather has been so nice (for a change) that I just had to be outside cutting grass & digging over the veggie garden...wish I hadn't done that...I think I used muscles I'd forgotten I had ....I ache absolutely everywhere!
After a day digging & cutting what could be better than a glass of wine & some cheese?.......

Guess's back to winter here...grey, damp & freezing! Good for my aching body though! LOL

Saturday 12 March 2011 I've gone Topiary Tree Mad!

After actually  finishing that poor neglected pink UFO the other day, I've gone absolutely topiary tree mad...just send the men with the straight-jackets round now!

Here's a licorice allsorts tree!

& I thought making all those marshmallows was a pain......try almost 2 days of making licorice allsorts! Totally NUTS!

Oh so prettily pink marshmallow topiary tree!

Hooray a long overdue UFO at last finished.....after making all those marshmallows, I got so fed up that the topiary was banished to my "pending" other words half finished...pile! Recently though a good friend of mine happened to remind me of how she loves pink...& that was all I needed to finally finish the poor thing!

Strawberries.....roll on Summer!

I've been busy working through my "stash" of accessories & came across this little double pedestal...think it's only been in my "stash" drawer for a couple of years....somehow it was just calling out to be filled with strawberries for that stylish mini buffet or table centre! It's going on eBay tonight!

French onion soup!

So much for Spring & the beginning of March...we are back to freezing night-time temperatures & although the days have been beautiful it's so cold out of the sun that I have been making myself one of my favourite, warming comfort foods.....French onion soup.......both 1:1 & 12th!

That little cheese grater made by Carol Lester actually works too! I'm still trying to make up my mind about which is best....a black background or a white one?
