The busiest week ever!
I'll admit to having done nothing but sew the past week. There was just too much to do with fitting and sewing, with lots of handwork on this project too. Of course now that it's done, I want another one, so that I can have some variety when I get to play in it.
I can also use it when I get to bake in this wonderful beehive oven. It's wood fired. I've gotten to use it a couple of times, both with success. Once was in the rain no less, but both days were very warm. I'll be giving it a go again a next weekend, when it's supposed to be cooler, so we'll see how it performs then.
And the luncheon? It was such fun. The friends are doing some homesteading the Victorian way lifestyle changes. They live a wonderfully simple and rewarding way. We ate an amazing meal, in beautiful surroundings, with such good manners and conversation. We walked around their property meeting a gazillion kitties, chooks, ducks, sheep and seeing their bountiful gardens and orchard. It was a delightful way to spend the day. We already have plans for next year, with a cider making bee, to use their cider presses.
