The printing of the invites has commenced

So I dug my gocco out of retirement and printed up our wedding invites this weekend...

I even let the husband-to-be have a go...

I'm really pleased with how they came out. The fonts were Albermarle Swash and Little Lord Fauntleroy (can't find a link to it at the moment!).

Next step is to add some colour in the form of fabric flowers. I'll show some more photos soon.

Taking it slow...

So often I rush around when I do things whether it's cooking, cleaning, working, reading or surfing the internet. So this afternoon for once I slowed down and enjoyed cooking. It started with the Tesco delivery- no bread. So I got out the granary flour & yeast and got on with making bread. I have to confess to using my Kenwood Chef for the kneading but it was still nice to make something so easily bought in the shop from scratch. Bread is something you can't rush, it has to be left to rise twice, and then baked, filling the kitchen with a lovely smell in the process.

And I made a lovely rhubarb & Bramley apple crumble; the fruit was picked up from the farm shop earlier this afternoon.
After gently stewing the fruit, I topped it with oats, flour, sugar and butter that had been rubbed together by hand (no gadgets this time).
Baked in the oven for 30 minutes and topped with homemade custard. Perfect.

A corner of my home...

Sorry for the quietness lately there are just not enough hours in the day.

Here's a little photo I took the other day of a corner in my living room; the pretty embroidery was a charity shop find. It was originally in a not so pretty frame- I think it looks much better like this.

I'll be back soon hopefully!
