Anyone for Pie ??????

I have a few passions - One of them is cooking. I "love" to cook and every so often I get the "fancies" - Today I fancied apple pie............ So I defrosted some of those apples that we stored back here and added a few raspberries and tonight we had steaming hot Apple & Raspberry Pie. Yum Yum !!

Another passion for me is the garden and as I have mentioned in the past I love spring time which got me to sketching a scene showing lots of little corners of our property.

I haven't decided what I will turn this stitchery into yet but I am having lots of fun getting it finished.

This is "Chester" ----- I nicknamed him that when we first moved to this place. He is a Wattle Bird who visits a tree outside our bedroom window every day. He sings me the sweet songs of spring. Sometimes he brings along some friends who also feature in this stitchery. Of course there are lots of flowers and lots of bright cheerful colours. Once I have finished I will show you "Spring Time".

And "YES" Geelong Won !!!!!! By 12 points !!!!!!
It was a fantastic game.

Back to work for me tomorrow after 2 weeks break.
