I made two banana and dark chocolate loaves and this is a favourite and something I know everyone will eat. The bananas give you a bit of security in the GF baking area as you know they will add moisture. Then on Saturday I tried the Maple and Pistachio cake, again another success both from the same book. I have tried things from this book in the past and they all come out well so I think I will try some of the more unusual recipes next.
My next make is all cut out, I have been in no hurry to make it up though however I must get on with in the next few days. I think my feeling has to do with there being plenty of clothes to wear already, I love the making part of it but I| don't want to just add for the sake of it. I need to think of ways to create that are useful and sustainable. I always keep my eyes open for items to reuse the fabric from in charity shops and recently got two garments for a £1 that will be saved for future projects.

The cooler months may see me trying my hand at crochet again this year, last year I ended up making fingerless gloves for all family members! I have seen some gorgeous shawls but then I am not really much of a shawl wearer, ideas please??
We had a long walk at the weekend which resulted in the dogs all needing a bath, we were not going to be put off by the rain but ended up very muddy. The dogs were rushed upstairs one at a time for a bath and I think they quite enjoyed it after being out in the rain. One of them always rushes about the house in a mad fit after and I am not sure if that is excitement or some kind of protest.
The lovely thing about the rain was the double rainbow that followed, I only managed to capture a single one in my image.
