The color of course is what I really like - RED!!! I had a pretty big colander full of the rosella pods or whatever. I followed Rhonda's directions and peeled off the red leaf thingies (calyx) to make the cordial syrup. You use a small amount (to taste) of this syrup to make the cordial. A squeeze of lemon improves the taste, I think. This site is talking about making jam, but you get a little more information about the plant and more pictures. I only got one lone bottle out of that bunch, but I may make more later. It's just interesting to try things, to see if you can actually do them, don't you think?
This morning was so nice that I worked out in the back yard for a while. I trimmed bushes and vines and then cleaned out the chicken house and put fresh hay in the nest boxes. (Yes, the chickens were happy.) Bruno watched everything with great interest and kept everyone in line. Later he got a bath, and now he is resting on "his" bed in the sewing room as I type this. What a life!
This afternoon our son dropped by for a quick visit. Here he's showing Mr. Muddling his latest fishing trip pictures. Those two surely do love to go out in the boat fishing!
And this is what's on my little design wall right now. Bonnie Hunter is another who is so generous with her patterns and expertise. This one is called Strip Twist.
I've got most of the squares made, I think I just need two more, then I'll start sewing them all together. If I can stop playing around with them and moving them here and there.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of fun things to do and see!
Hugs and kisses,
