Well today begins with a funny story – got up, got dressed, fed Lizzie, dressed Lizzie, made some bread dough, got sewing stuff out. 11.15am Jenny and Daisy came to pick us up, opened door, looked at Jenny……….and………………………….. realised we were dressed in an identical top!!! Further inspection revealed we were also wearing the same shade of jeans and boots and…… we had both tried to ‘jazz’ up our outfits with a ‘funky’ scarf! Oh very dear!
Giggling away we set off on the journey to Vicki and Isla’s house with the intention of sewing dresses for dress a girl around the world. Well…….. we tried but with three small girlies lets just say the sewing achievements were minimal but…… Jenny did finish one she had started and Vicki and Becksie cut out dresses so not an epic fail like the matching top! Lunch was yummy sausages and homemade bread (made at chateau Pugh and baked at Vicki’s) and later some yummy cake.
Now on the subject of dresses Becksie was this morning thrilled to receive pictures of some of the dresses made on our dress day with their new owners – an incredible feeling to see a dress you had made being worn with pride – in fact for Becksie very emotional. These photo’s have really inspired Becksie to reach her 200 dress target.
So all this sewing (well thinking about sewing) made us hungry so…… dinner was a roast chicken with sweet potato wedges. A delightful little recipe that is very quick and easy and makes a tasty side to a roasted local chicken.
Preheat oven to 200c
Get a large bowl and add a cup of plain flour, a good sprinkling of dried thyme, paprika (to taste), salt and pepper (to taste) – mix together
Oh and one more thing – we also did some regular potato wedges at the same time to the same recipe!
