Exciting times!

Hello!!! Thanks for dropping by....

There's alot going on at the moment, lots of change and new stuff which is all very exciting. We move house in just over a month (eeeek!!!) so sorting and packing will engulf my life soon but for now this is what I've been up to.....

My son's feet are always cold but he won't wear slippers! So I made him these.....

They are slipper socks and called Robinfoot. It's a very easy pattern so have a go!!!

Next up is a savoury tart that I made from a friend's recipe:

It really is delicious so here's the recipe (I think I've posted this before but it's soooo good, it's worth posting again!)

Pam’s Wonderful, Incredible, Delicious, Divine, Tasty Crustless Savoury Tart

3 thick slices of bread (crusts cut off) OR 4 slices of regular sliced bread
1 onion
1 pack bacon
2 cups grated cheese
3 eggs
250ml milk
1 tbsp butter
any other ingredients you fancy * (ie spinach & feta cheese / broccoli & sundried toms / asparagus / butternut / other veg)
1. Break the bread into a large mixing bowl.
2. Microwave butter until melted and add to the milk. Pour over bread.
3. Chop onion and bacon and fry until cooked (but not crispy).
4. Add onion/bacon mixture to bread mix.
5. Add other ingredients (see * above).
6. Add grated cheese.
7. Add beaten eggs.
8. Mix well and place in a large greased flan/quiche dish.
9. Bake for 40-50 mins at 180.

Finally, a finished project!!!! Yay!!!! Do you remember this little beauty that I had on my needles about a month ago? Well, it became this ....

I've already worn it twice and I love it! The colour is burnt orange and I added jean buttons which really work well! The pattern is Drift and I have to say, it was a pleasure to knit. I used basic acrylic double knitting so wasn't too expensive to make and I'm certain it's going to become one of those 'old favourites' in my wardrobe!

Currently on the needles is Blue Sand  which I thought would be really difficult (having quickly scanned the pattern when I purchased it) but in fact is very well written and easy to follow. I'm knitting it in a lime green (all one colour) but have already decided to do the 3 colour version next (probably grey, white and blue).

So that's me for now. What have you been up to?
Til soon.
