After the usual rush of soccer and sewing lessons, it was a quiet, pottering around type of weekend here. Just the way I like it.
Crafting, cooking, reading and tea can be amazingly good for the soul. Not to mention a little cider. Or pasta carbonara.
That Elizabeth Zimmerman sweater has proved to be not so tricky afterall, if approached with a good dose of common sense. Luca may just get his jumper this year afterall. Sad to say I am not the fastest knitter in the world.
I made a little dish of potato, bacon and brie cheese from Little Paris Kitchen. It was very good, and I'm looking forward to delving a little more into the world of French cookery. Rachel Khoo reminds me a little of a modern day Julia Child, though her recipes have been modified and simplified somewhat from the traditional.
I think it was a good weekend.
