So much has been happening - it really gets difficult to find time to share - my blog has been quite neglected lately.
First up: This weekend I'm teaching a class at Hettie's Patch. Such a delightful store, I'm looking forward to it. It's a Christmas in July project, click here for details. I do hope you can make it!
And I've been cooking! Something I don't do enough of ... Last weekend we were invited to dinner at the home of our oldest (as in longest time) friends. I wanted to bring dessert, and so I made Lemon Curd Tarts. I pinned the recipe on Pinterest, and I'll include the link here for you.
Now here's a dirty little secret - I've been watching the Great Australian Bake Off on TV - and I might be just a little hooked! Lo and behold, after my Lemon Curd success, the technical bake off on the Pies episode was Lemon Meringue Pie!! I made it my business to recreate some myself!
here for the GABO Lemon Meringe recipe. And another confession: I didn't follow their recipe really. I used a frozen shortcrust pastry sheet, and I used the Lemon Curd recipe from the tarts that I had made earlier in the week. I did use the meringue recipe from GABO, but I piped the extra into a dish just for Camo as he's not really into the curd. You see, the GABO recipe made a pie that could feed up to 10, and I just don't need that much temptation in the house! Anyways ... the pie was delicious - love love loved it! Definitely not Weight Watchers friendly, but Amy has requested it be made again ASAP!
And this last picture was taken by one of our lovely Guild ladies, Candy. I was so happy to lend my Nearly Insane baby to the Guild for display at the Sewing, Stitching and Hand Craft Show at the showgrounds this weekend just gone. And here she is in all her glory.
Ohhhh, and the class at Quilt Encounter on Tuesday was super fun, I had the best time with lovely students - I'm pretty sure they all went home happy. Once I've done all my homework, I'll share the project with you all.
Have a great week, and I'll chatter soon! xox
