Yesterday, Colin and Luke went to an away game - Forest Green Rovers v Hyde (football in case you've not heard of them!) Rachael and I decided to have a Harry Potter day. I stitched as I watched but couldn't settle to any particular design. First I stitched on my Stable.
And then fancied a little bit of snow.
Finally I couldn't resist marking out my fabric and starting this. What is it Jo P? I have marked it out as it is in the fabric layout chart but it seems to waste an awful lot of fabric in my opinion. I am thinking about restarting it with just an inch and a half between each piece as they are cut down to half an inch left all round. What do you think?
On Friday Rachael and Luke wanted to do some cooking and baking. I'm currently on a bit of a health kick with regards to food so didn't want too many cakes. In the end we settled on some chocolate brownies and some buns from a Weightwatchers book I had. Then we made some spaghetti bolognese for the freezer and finally homemade pizza for tea. Here are some photos of the finished items...
This is the pizza before the cheese went on. The kids were a bit heavy on the meat. Mine only had tuna, mushroom and sweetcorn on so not worthy of a photo! Luke's was a work of art!

Then I moved onto Roses of Paris.
