Bikes on board and off to The Brampton Valley cycle way. This is where we started...
|All neat and tidy|
|Cooling Pimms...getting a taste for this drink!|
|Missed out on these|
|We used to call this "scrumping" but now I believe the term is foraging|
|First of many, me thinks..yummy!|
Thursday is usually a day when I go to sit and sew at my local quilt shop, but today I have an appointment with an engineer from B.T. (British Telecom) so I started the day making my pastry for more apple pies.
Did you notice the big 'A' on the two pies that will be frozen. There is a reason for this, you see I have often made chicken pies and apple pies and all have sat happily in my freezer unnamed because I would definitely know which was which......famous last words. On at least two occasions I have got 'apple' pies out, cooked them in the oven, made the custard to go with them only to find when I have cut them open its been lovely chicken and mushroom inside ...... not really the thing to go with the custard! More pies to be made, but this one for today...
|Just look at the amount of apples still to go into pies|
I did have a bit of time for sewing, so I finished off the bag that I should have been sewing with my friends. It's another of the patterns that I won from Geta's linky party. It not only has the two pockets at the front (the white fabric is the pockets), there is also a zipper pocket on the back and at least 3 more on the inside.....very handy
