Hello Gill,
I wonder if anyone ever called me 'that brazilian woman’?. I have lived in the UK for the past 23 years...
I love your purchase of fabrics and hopefully we will see the beautiful things you'll make with them.
PS: on your list of 50+1 recipes for Apples, can you please add one from Mrs Beeton's Apple Amber. I have tried it this week...

This does look like a good recipe. I don't get around to baking much anymore. Sometimes if I know the kids are coming around, I might bake something.
