On Friday we had our crochet group meeting, and one of the ladies has been offered some Carpet Wool......for free!! Evidently it was headed for the rubbish tip!......do you remember last year when 'L' actually bought some (pictured below).
|Got a bit carried away.|
|Not sure you can see just how big the balls were|
|One of the wooden spools empty, bet there's a few folk that would like those!|
The other thing that is growing is the pile of bonding blankets for Emily's Star
|These can be added to the box we are now collecting|
I have also decided to try a different recipe for my apple pies. This morning I peeled and chopped all my remaining apples, part cooked them and then left them in a strainer to remove some of the liquid. I then blind baked the pastry for the bottom of the pie, popped the cooked apples in and covered them with a lid. I am hoping this will help prevent a "soggy bottom".......after all who wants that. Actually I don't care if the bottom is soggy just so long as there's plenty of apple. I'll try to remember to let you know how they eat.
