Chutney Time.

Gifted rhubarb, good recipe (Digby Law), autumnal days, recycled jars all adds up to our winter supply of chutney. Smear on just about anything edible.

Lavender hearts, mainly.

Today, right now, I am making lavender and rose geranium filled vintage linen hearts - the lavender only hearts are already finished, see left of the photo. Its a hot day again in Hawkes Bay but the first autumn shadows are creeping around my garden and finding their way into my sewing room. I harvested more lavender this morning, most of it already dry on the stalk which means I spend evenings stripping the stalks whilst watching TV. I always figure its okay to watch as much as you like as long as you do something else as well!
I will be back at the March Craft&Design Market in Havelock North this Saturday - click HERE for details.
