"East cross stitch, Christmas shop,from garden to plate and looking for Madame Weigel's Journal of Fashion.
I have completed the" East" Weather vane on the cross stitch.
There are some French Knots and Lazy Daisies still to be done on this one. Will do them right at the end so the hoop doesn't flatten them.
Wednesday saw us with no power for the day. So in the afternoon Lucy and I took a drive across to Toodyay. A Christmas shop had recently opened. We had a look around. We both felt, why? I guess if it was closer to Christmas it would be OK but to me it felt over the top. It would be a lovely place to take children closer to Christmas.
This homegrown organic Broccoli was part of our meal last night. It was just perfect, picked about an hour before it went into the pot.
This is one of the beds of Baby Cauliflowers which are just starting to form. The blue flowers are from the Chia which has re seeded from last year. Two corns have come up in the bed as well. I was throwing out some seeds that were old and these were amongst them. They have Corn forming so hopefully I may get one or two from them. Not really the right time of the year for them, if nothing much comes from them at least I can feed them to the chooks.
I have a blog reader who collects these old magazines. Madame Weigel's. If you are willing to sell your copies or have seen some please leave a message in the comments.
