More Chutney - Fiery Bengal - yummy.
And the cooking chutney...
And it made a good few jars for the Homemade Hampers I'm putting together for Christmas presents:
Crochet Progress - I'm loving making granny squares and have been so inspired across blogland. But I have to say - I didn't realise how much it would 'eat' up the yarn. Not an inexpensive homespun make... I was aiming for a gorgeous big blanket like this . But I think I can't justify the yarn, so I'll alter my plan and enjoy fashioning these into cushion covers.
Some Furniture Upcycling to come - I find this a really enjoyable bit of homemaking!! I love breathing new life into tired and jaded bits of history.... plus more of those legs I so love!
So although I've been on morphine and steroids (due to a rheumatoid flare) and feeling much under the weather, on reflection I have achieved some home loving over the past week. That makes me happy. I've taken things slowly while the children have been at school - but they've still gotten done.
That's another bit about blogging that I've found very powerful - you consider much more closely tasks of the everyday and recognise those little achievements - even if they are quite mundane and routine they become something to celebrate!!
Today I'm linking up with these fabulous parties!
