It's being blowing a right hoolie here and it's as wild this morning. With horizontal rain.
So since I last blogged I've dyed a couple of summer frocks back to their original colour with fantastic results, which gives them another lease of life. One of them being my favourite dress ever in the world ever. It's like Lazarus this frock!
I made home made KFC.
It was a Tom Kerridge recipe. Personally speaking Tom, in case you are reading this, I think you are too heavy with the paprikas and the salt. BUT I will never ever ever cook a chicken breast again without first bathing it in buttermilk overnight. Oh. My. Stars, the chicken was so juicy! So I will be doing that for sure. I will try out KFC home style again, but I will be fiddling with the herbs and spices.
In the garden, the Delphs have all but finished. I've cut them down, so I might get another flourish, fingers crossed. I've had six tomatoes off the hanging basket. There's loads of green ones, just short on long hot sunshine to get them red!
I know some of you were interested in seeing the wall paper I'd spied. This one is my preferred pattern.
And if I were to buy my curtains at Dunelm ...
The HG AND ALL MY FRIENDS like this one that I have named Giant Hogweed.
( Skinny lady in pic is my sister, not me, I think my hips extend beyond the edges of this extra wide paper *cries* )
And I chose a possible curtain in Dunelm
Anyway, I have bought both papers. Not online though, at £50+ a roll! It cost me just £2 a roll. The unwanted bedroom paper will either go in the hall, in fifteen years when it finally gets done, or go to school for the kids to draw on!! We shall see.
I've washed this jersey fabric and I'm going to have a go at making a frock out of it with a pattern I'm going to draw myself using a frock I already have! First I need to find my pattern paper. But I will do it. My beloved Nanna used to use newspaper! I got this fabric for about £6 so no drastic loss if it goes t*ts up!
I've loads more to show 'n' tell but I'll save it for another day.
Have a great Monday
Lots of love from
