Cookery Class

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much for the comments on my last post!

Today Leo and I went to our cookery group.  Leo goes to the creche while I do some cooking with other mummies (and one daddy!).  The group is run by a local initiative and is free, it runs for 6 weeks. We split into different groups to make different things and then at the end share what we've all made to take home.  The other people are all v nice and friendly.

We made Carrot and Coriander Soup, Chicken and Mushroom Pasties and Oat and Raisin Biscuits mmm.

I am also feeling very pleased with myself as I have mastered the treble stitch in crochet (complete crochet beginner!).  I must have looked a bit silly last night as I sat with my earphones in watching a you tube tutorial again and again with my wool and hook in hand!  Max didn't seem to notice as he was watching a film!

So here is the first round of what will hopefully be a cushion cover!


  1. What a great free initiative! You're one step ahead of me on the crochet - I can only do straight lines so far!

  2. It looks great. Yummy food and good for a bit of socialising too. I like the quilt you are making, it looks very pretty.
    I would like a Pip duvet cover, quilt, bad, the list goes on. My bank balance ain't big enough either. It is nice eye candy though, x

  3. I particularly like the cookies and pasties. Were they as delicious as they look?

  4. Thank you all for leaving comments! I love reading them!
    The cookies were extra yummy and Leo and I even ate some on the walk home from the class! xx


I'd love to hear from you!
