Flower block wall hanging.

I've joined a local needlework group for immigrant women, Drentse Doeken, we have been working on a wall hanging for the volunteers centre. Each woman has made a square, this is the result so far, I'll post another photo when it is sewn together and hanging in place.

Card making.

I've been enjoying making greeting cards recently, here's one I made a few weeks ago on plastic canvas mounted on handmade paper then onto a pre-folded card.

Making chutney.

I've been making chutney from a recipe in an old book by Marguerite Patten, called 500 Recipes for Jams, Pickles, Chutneys.

As you can see, these books are well used. We've made hundreds of jars of chutney over the years and they always turn out well.

Our favourites are Apple and Pear, Autumn Fruits, and the Green Tomato chutney.
