I made fennel liqueur. Last August I filled a litre kilner jar with herb fennel from the garden, and topped it up with vodka. It infused for three months and the fennel liquor was mixed with a sugar syrup and left to mature for another few months. It is the most gloriously spicy, herby, warming drink you could imagine. Perfect for after-dinner sipping
I am still making this ripple blanket. It is very much a famine or feast sort of project - either I am working on it every night, or it is bundled away out of the road and forgotten. Just now it is back in progress - a row added here and there as I get a chance. I think I am probably 15-20 stripes away from it being the size I want before I attempt a border.
I am making lots of things with eggs.
I am making a tunic top in grey linen, using the pattern from here
I am making Summer plans.
I am making this cardigan
and I am making a new blog, to contain my views on the Independence Referendum. It is such an important and historic time for us, in Scotland, as we look towards September, and I want to make my own comments on the process. I have decided to create a new space for those musings; It is still very much in its early stages - only 2 posts and one is copied from here, but I very much hope you will visit me there, as well as here. x
