They have been out visiting and doing things with other friends and family while we catch up here. We have had lots of games of Scrabble and Bobble in the evenings...they are both very good and at the moment are probably ahead on score - lots of fun. The olds challenging 2 very smart young things!
Today R is helping me make a huge batch of tomato sauce...the young ones are on a picnic. Rain is predicted for next week and we know that will ruin the tomatoes....so as we didn't grow them to waste, sauce it is.
This is stage 1. Then I have sieved it and am reboiling it to thicken it at the moment. As we skinned and cored the tomatoes what I have sieved out is being kept to put into winter casseroles or a tart even ( tastes yummy )
Since I am talking about tomato sauce these echinacea are called tomato soup - it's just the right name .....and a new variety.
This evening we are all going to see the film Alice in Wonderland in 3D.
There has been a little progress with the Agapanthus wall hanging...I got a sore neck and I think quilting this is to blame....I'm pleased with it though and the end is in sight.
* Molly the felt ball is slightly smaller then the clutch ball.
* Gudrun - no the waterlilies have no smell ( that's a shame ).
I'm off to Bottle now. ( I am behind reading your blogs but will catch up soon. )
