Make It Monday 6th March 2023
Last week I concentrated on knitting and crochet, making dishcloths with matching scrubbies. I love to give them as sets, tied together with a ribbon that I try to make a useful length. I like every part of my gift to be useful, including the wrapping, so I try to make it either a gift bag or paper that can be reused in some way, or a tea towel or a length of fabric, I've even used silk scarves I picked up at the op shop and lengths of lace.
On Sunday we pulled out the cucumbers and zucchini. The cukes were almost finished, but I was sad to pull out the zucchini, they just keep producing. There is enough on the shelf and in the freezer for two years - I reached my goal - so pulling them out to replant winter veg doesn't make me feel so guilty.
I made some cards for the nursing home and to add to my stash.
I did a bulk cooking day and cooked two briskets in the slow cooker, and two legs of lamb. They were then all sliced and put in gravy and frozen. Next job is to take them out of the freezer containers and vac seal them for easy roast dinners and beef and gravy rolls.
I'm still organising the craft room. Every time I think it's finished, I find something else that can be organised. It's getting there though.
I have a stash of bookmarks started, some for Joy's school, and some for the present box.
What did you make, bake, sew and grow last week?
