Some Beading but Mainly Food

I have had a wonderful few days - there was food, gardening, folding fabric and even time for some beading.

My garden has really suffered this year with little - ok NO - work done in it at all. Barely had time to even notice it to be truthful. So I have spent a few hours each day and have weeded and transplanted and mulched and watered so hopefully by spring we will have a colourful display which I can show you.

We went to the Eveleigh Growers Market for breakfast and had a wonderful time munching through some delicious goodies. I love Helen's Grab Your Fork Blog - she has a wonderful eating her way around Sydney. My favourite was a jar of the most delicate marinated baby figs which I am eating sparingly but they are scrumptious.
Here are some dips and spreads for sampling.

I had a cheese and mushroom and spinach blini for my official breakfast along with lots of other samples and organic apple and raspberry juice

Here are some other delicious treats. Well I thought they sounded delicious until I realised they were actually for dogs!

And yes - I did do some more beading on my quilt. These are all sewn on one at a time using seed stitch.
