It was a real pea souper on Sunday......

Very British like with fog through out the day on Sunday.  I guess it was better than snow, at least you don't have to shovel fog.

Here is a photo of the material I bought.  Not sure what I am going to do with it yet, as I am busy with a cross stitch project.


I had a go with the stamping and it's a lot harder than it looks.  The flower to the right is the one the lady at the show did for me.  I did the two on the left, I need to practice more.  Also blogger turned my photo around?  Why I do not know.........

Sunday was a super quiet day, which suited me just fine.  Made a roast of beef in the crockpot.  The recipe is here, and in my humble opinion is the only way to cook beef.   I made enough potatoes for another meal, all I need to add is some veggies.

The roast beef sounds nice = must try it. Don't know if we would eat a tray of Y/Puds all at once - do they 'keep' and, if so, what's your recommendation on 'keeping' method.

Blogger occasionally turns my photographs round. I wondered if I turned them sideways Blogger would straighten them, but I doubt it. I like the material and your first attempt at rubber stamping was much better than mine.

I love beef roasted in crock pot- it sounds very nice. When I finally get my appetite back I will try it. Good luck with all the crafty stuff- it makes me hyper ventilate just looking at it.I am so woeful at endeavour- motor skills not very good. Should see the ugliness I create with scissors. LOL

Never tried roasts with cola...sounds interesting and yummy ( thank you too for the yorkie recipe had them once would love to try to make them! Only 2 of us here, do they keep?)
I am clueless on the phots ( the ones that turn on you) ...your attempt at stampng looks great I am sure with a few more tries you will have it going beatifully!

In answer to John's and Daxingcujo's questions:

When I make roast beef and yorkshires, there is usually enough for a couple of days meals, so I just reheat them in the microwave. I have never attempted to freeze them, but as you can buy frozen yorkshires, I am guessing you should be able to freeze them no problem.

Quite often though, if I make roast beef and yorkshires, the yorkshires will be our "potatoes" so we'll have three of them each instead of potatoes.

I love the fabrics in your future quilt. Such bright, warm colors will get you through the fog safely. And warm you when the snow flies.

I love the material you bought. It's the sort I would use to make some classic old-style clothes for Charlie if I had a working sewing machine. And more time! LOL
