Have just made a batch of 16 little crumbles in ramekins for the freezer. Just the right size for one person. There are 9 apple and mincemeat, 4 rhubarb and 3 cherry with a spoonful of brandy. I have half a jar of cherries left and no more dishes so will have to have a think about what to do with the rest tomorrow.
On Thursday 21st Anais was playing in a school music concert at the Adrian Boult Hall in Birmingham so I went there straight from work. The concert was excellent but when we came out it was snowing and very cold. Got to work OK on the Friday, hardly any snow in Coventry! Typical! Left work a bit early though as it was getting worse. By Saturday morning had about 6 inches. Was all ready to do a table top sale down at Hagley with some of my craft things but no chance! Next door moved my snow which was very nice of them but it snowed again overnight. Had a ticket for the Hobby Craft show at the NEC and was not at all sure about going but made the decision, got the train times, dug the car out and off I went! Was really glad I did as it was not as packed as sometimes and I was able to have a really good look round and picked up a few bargains! The scarf wool was just £3 and I think will look quite elegant when knitted.
Michelle got me some 12" teddy bears from the closing down sale at Clinton's Cards. Together with the two I got myself a couple of weeks previously I now had 7 bears, four cream and three brown. I decided to knit some little sweaters for them, give them names and sell them at the next craft fair I did. The next craft fair was on the Wednesday after I returned from holiday, in the lunchtime at work. Just myself and two ladies who make cards. I managed get four bears ready, Charlie, Bertie, Henry and Fraser (who had a cable knit sweater). I sold Fraser and had an order from a lady who wanted one as a present for a new baby so she wanted a cream bear with a pink sweater. I also added a pink bow on the ear.
I am Jenny (when I was little my dad always called me Jenny Wren) and I enjoy making hand crafted things. Watch this space to see what I am working on.
