A bit o' baking and haircuts for roses

I love weekends...........

My mum was a great cook and one of my favourite cakes was Date Loaf.......... 

Once again it is so easy to make and hard to flop!














Lovely spread with butter - never lasts long in this house. 

I'll add the recipe in the recipe tab.

I have been working on a quilt-as-you go and this week I finished off a pile of blocks....


Mid-winter and it's rose pruning time.... 

Before:-

After:-

I'm looking forward to the show in spring................

I also finished off the Natalie Lymers (Cinderberry Stitches) design I have been working on - it is a gift for a Golden Wedding Anniversary and I wanted to frame it on canvas...............


Ready to wrap...........
