|My block - I didn't take a photo when it was actually finished, Duh!|
But this is pretty close.
So it is round robin catch up time... I posted my block off on Tuesday per my last post. I have just doublechecked whether the person I was sending it to would have been affected by the weather disaster of the last few weeks and it seems all is OK on that front. Whew! Then on Wednesday, I had an exciting delivery in the mail, with someone elses block arriving!!! So welcome to Linda from Victoria who used her block to interprete the theme in a pictorial fashion, with lovely photos of her family and surroundings, plus the plans for their new house printed on her fabric - surrounded by aboriginal fabrics. It is quite lovely! Now it is just a matter of waiting for the next set of instructions to find out what I am supposed to do to it. Watch this space! If anybody else is interested in this sort of programme, the one I am participating in is through "The Patchwork Studio" and they have another one starting in March which they are currently taking registrations for.
I have cooked up another batch of tomatoes, capsicum, garlic and this time onion, so I am finally going to post the promised photos of the procedure. Not that it is really overly interesting, but oh so easy, and a great way to use all those million of tomatoes that all seem to ripen at the same time.
|Raw tomatoes, garlic & capsicum, salt, pepper, slug of oil... in the oven 150C for 1hr-ish|
|The cooked product - simply whizz up, then use for pasta sauce, pizza bases, all sorts.|
Freeze in bags or containers... YUM! Turn into tomato soup by passing through
sieve, and adding chicken stock.
I don't really have much else to report at this point in time - I haven't actually done much else... it has been too hot and I've had grumpy children come home from school - first week back is so tiring.
Something funny that was in the local rag... advertising a new liquor outlet the new owner was described as opening "after years of developing great product knowledge".
