after the math

I sat down and cast on many many stitches - and now onto row 2.

Yesterday also saw some sewing and some cooking


I made more chicken from the new cook book - this time chicken with rosewater and hazelnuts YUM, apple and olive cake - double YUM. 




Then the sewing machine came out and I made .  
a bird bag - not a bag for birds but for knitting with birds on it - this bag is from two Kate's pattern.  Here it is before I sewed the handles together -so you can see the birds in full glory - can you guess where this fabric is from - and for the other projects but not the quilt....



a toiletry bag,



 some serviettes


and played with some fabric for a quilt - perhaps
