You may be surprised to know that I was quite the domestic goddess today! (even I'm surprised!)
I made soup from homegrown tomatoes, basil, tarragon & celery; YUM
Made a fruit crumble from homegrown apples, white currants & 2 raspberries (and no shop bought crumble mix either! Oh no! I made my own cinnamon crumble!); DOUBLE YUM
And .... (hold on to your hats) made a Victoria sponge, from scratch, with homemade plum jam (made by my friend!)!
I even took my youngest blackberry picking!!
I'm in danger of growing my hair long, dying it black, and considerably upsizing my hips!!
And there was some sewing too!

This is my block in Brit Bee Round 4.
This year we are each designing a block to make up 1 quilt design. At the end of our year(ish) we will all have the same quilt design, but made with a block from each of the other 11 members to go with our own block. Clear as mud?!
We also make a 15" centre block to get started. Because of the Farm Girl Vintage vibe going on round here, I thought I'd use the baby chick block I'd previously made from the book, bringing it up to size with Low Volume borders.
