I was catching up on some blog-reading the other day, as you do . . . and came across a video link on Lynda’s blog, Life on the Farmlet, that had me fascinated, and soon saw me searching for more videos. Videos on Kaffe Fassett.
Crafters will know the name, and I expect many of us have some of his creations in our craftings drawers, since he is so famous. I was fascinated to hear him talk about how he got into all the different crafts, and immediately shot across to amazon and bought a copy of his autobiography
I’ve only flicked through so far, but oh my! This is going to be my bedtime book. I actually wonder why they’ve put a dust cover on this book, because look what’s underneath
And just one glimpse inside
So much colour . . . just what a girl needs on a drizzly autumn day.
Speaking of colours . . . I was doing my weekly food shop and came across some interesting flavours of cordial.
Blackberry, violet and cherry ^^ Made in France, in the Franche Comté region, and what delicious coridals they are! I particularly like the violet cordial which really does smell and taste like violets.
And last photo to show you how the kittens are growing.
Abby on the left, and Ducky on the right. You can’t tell from the photo but Ducky is a good kilo heavier than Abby now. I’ve given up weighing him because my kitchen scales only weigh up to 3 kilos, and he hit the 3 kilo mark a few weeks ago already! Not quite 5 months old yet, but both are starting to lose their kittenish looks and ressemble real adult cats ^^
