freedom :)

Since my graduation two weeks ago I've been making the most of my freedom. By staying at home. Yep, I'm happy as a clam to just be home! Here are some of the fruits of my labor this week. Phew, I am on a roll!

I sewed a purse!  This was my first time sewing with a zip and so I was chuffed with how it turned out. I got the pattern from Ashley at Make It and Love It.  It made the perfect gift for a dear friend who is sadly leaving Berkeley (we're going to miss you Arijaan!) 

A loaf of bread I baked. I'd been waiting for the chance to try this No-Knead Recipe from a blog friend (thanks Cassie!). I have to say, it was the easiest thing I've ever made and it was super delicious!  It made me think of my Great-Gran Phipson, who would always share a loaf of her homemade bread with us. We'll be having it with our dinner tonight. Yum!

What a fun week! I think I can get used to this unemployed thing ;)

Watch this space :)

Hi my Tam

I am so very impressed - with both the bread and the sewing!

It brought back fond memories of Great Gran and her delicious bread too!

But hey you quite the "boff" with making such a fantastic bag - and sewing a zip for the first time, WOW! It looks so professionally done!

Well done for keeping so productively busy - I would waste time reading - as you know me!!!

Well done, heaps of love
