A funny week, with a lot happening, that has nothing to do with the blog but stopped me doing any real sewing or blogging.
Last week I had a go at making Chocolate Brownies, it's a good few years since I've made them and having tasted them I now know why.
To say they are rich and sweet is an understatement, even Son commented on how much chocolate there was in them. I hadn't actually put in the recommended amount and had to mix dark and milk chocolate just to make up the amount I did put in. I think they would have been untouched if I'd used the recommended amount of dark chocolate.
After nearly 3 weeks of checking on them everyday my sweet peas are starting to have green shoots.
I lost all of the geraniums, which wasn't really a surprise, now I just have to avoid killing the sweet peas. As the snow is going and the weather is maybe going to start to warm up I shall turn my attention to sewing some more seeds.
The only stitching I have done this week is the Valentines' Day card I made Husband.
18 count White Aida
It's based on a design Rachael did, although I changed the lettering to some I found in one of my cross stitch books. I received a card from Husband and a bunch of flowers which he gave me on Thursday. Tonight we are treating ourselves to a take-away and a bottle of wine, a real treat these days as the last time we did this was the night before he lost his job.
