My brain seemed somewhat jumbled this weekend and I found it hard to focus on much so spent most of the time flitting between projects and cooking, not a bad combination I guess.
Saturday morning was spent doing some domestic chores and while we were out, I spotted a proper greengrocers! Oh, I can't tell you how refreshing it was to see fruit and veg piled high tempting us to touch and buy, and did we ever. It made such a change not to have produce cellophaned in unnecessary packing. It might sound a little strange for those who have greengrocers local to them, but we, here, seem to be surrounded by supermarkets.
Having armed ourselves with lots of fresh produce, I set to on our return and made some roasted red pepper and vine tomato soup, chucked in some garlic and celery just for a few more vitamins! Now, I don't normally cost out meals, but having bought the produce in the morning I thought it'll be an interesting exercise - for £3.00 it fed all 4 of us. OK, it was only veg, but it was fresh, local, and we were supporting a shopkeeper which made me feel a little virtuous!
Back to woolly balls - last week I spotted this pretty wreath and thought I fancied having a go, using some vibrant colours.
So with one of these
some of those
to do this
you end up with a collection of these
and finally the finished article
I added a wired flower garland as I felt it just needed that bit extra. It was a very relaxing, easy project which is always good in my book!
Have a good day.
