Marmalade, sewing & other fun

It's been a busy weekend as we've had one of the DGD's visiting, I've made 8 jars of marmalade as it's the time of year when the Seville oranges are in the shops. They were too hot to label when I took the pic.

DGD & I made up a few kits I'd saved from some magazines I was given, a stuffed owl and some cards with  felt flowers on them.

We treated her to fish & chips for lunch yesterday and at tea time she asked for ham & pineapple pizza, I only had cheese & tomato pizza in but I had some sandwich ham & a tin of pineapple so I added the extra toppings needed.

This morning at 7:30 we made pain chocolate for breakfast, she ate a couple and saved the rest to share with her siblings. When my L&M got up about 9 and had scrambled egg on toast she had the same, I'm not sure where she puts it all as she's so skinny.

We had roast beef for lunch and as she isn't keen on potatoes I made extra little yorkies and she ate 4 of them.

She also helped plant and label some seeds, cucumber, sweet peppers & chili peppers, we then sorted out some fabric to make some clothes for the twins and some items for the handicraft stall.

There is nothing that compares with home made marmalade. I look forward to having my DGD crafting with me.
