Make It Monday 17th April 2023
Make it Monday rolls around fast!
Last week was busy in the kitchen, garden and craft room.
I cooked tomatoes down to a nice, thick, yummy consistency to make tomato sauce. I'll use this during the year to make pasta sauce or tomato soup or cacciatore or anything else that required tomatoes.
I finished work on the Irresistible Blooms workshop, can't wait to get that started.
I planted parsnips and turnips. Before planting I soaked the seeds overnight, then sowed them straight into the garden. Root veggies do not like to be transplanted, and I have much better success when I direct sow these veggies. I made sure the soil was well turned over and nice and loose, and gave them a good drink of compost tea. Then I covered them with the hoops and I'm glad I did, the rain has been constant since they went in the ground and those tiny seeds would most definitely have washed away.
I crocheted a set of make-up scrubbies for the present box.
I crocheted a daisy dishcloth to replace one that was sold in our store.
I crocheted a pot holder for the present box.
I finished a dishcloth for the present box.
I crocheted a daisy dishcloth and matching pot holder for the present box.
I crocheted another set of scrunchies for the present box.
I went to card group and made cards using scraps. These have already been bagged up to send to the retirement village.
I harvested volunteered potatoes from the garden. Potatoes were $3.50/kg last week so this is a big saving.
What did you make, bake, sew and grow last week?

Hi Cath, what a busy week for you! Love the crotchet items you added to your gift box they are lovely 💗 this past week I crotchet jar grippers openers for the gift box and shop using yarn on hand and heavy duty shelf liner. They really do work ! My sister loves hers so I decyto make some to sell. Also I finished 24 credit card wallets with matching key chains for the shop using scrap fabric. I am aiming to use up any scraps from projects to maximize my resources...waste not want not lol. This week I am working on the lovely candles that you and Annabelle have been showing on your blogs. It's a project my neighbors and I are going to be doing on Wednesday for Christmas gifts. Thank you for all your inspiring posts
