Yesterday I went to the first session of choir for this year.
It was good to be singing again, I do enjoy it, three hours when I switch off to everything else.
As it is the Festival of the Three Kings this weekend we had the traditional cake.
A thin puff pastry pie filled with marzipan, delicious.
Hidden inside the pie is a small china shape, traditionally it was a figure from the nativity but yesterday it was a little car.
The little car was in my piece of pie so I wore the gold cardboard crown for the rest of the singing !!
Wearing the crown is the prize for finding the favour.
Spring bulbs 2010
Today we have had a dry day with some sunshine.
This afternoon I was able to do some work and plant and sort more spring bulbs.
It was good to be outside.
This afternoon I have finished another one of my linen bags.
The bag is made from old linen which I've dyed and the lining is a very dark brown/charcoal coloured linen.
The label is one of two that I use on things I make. When I lived in England I used 'Pilgrim Trading' , I still use that and now living here I have 'La Lune et Le Lievre' - the moon and the hare, we are lucky to see quite a few hares here and I love them.
The pretty grey satin ribbon is an old piece that I found in one of the trocs.The buttons are old ones from my collection, each one so precious, I love them.
