You may remember that I'm one of fifteen Lecien "Flower Sugar" World Ambassadors and every so often I receive a parcel from Japan, overflowing with not-yet-released Flower Sugar pretties to play with.
This week not one, but two bundles of floral and fancy came to bless me...
Flower Sugar 'Holiday' will be waiting at your local quilt shop in June, in plenty of time for Christmas sewing!
Before then I'll share a free festive pattern with a list of materials required which you can print up and take with you to the shop. There's a design wafting around my creative space you see, and it could be the perfect choice for a Christmas project.
For now though, let me show you the two prints I love the most from the FS "Holiday" bundle. Do they make you giddy with delight too?
The other bundle is just as delicious!
Flower Sugar "Sweet Carnival" will debut at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City, USA, and will arrive at local quilt shops by October.
I have ideas for these too...so many ideas, but which one to choose????
I may even host a little giveaway...stay tuned for that one.
Every week, Monday to Friday at 7am, without exception, Mr E and I have breakfast together.
It's a special time of the day to chat, share a healthy meal, and pray.
Saturdays are different though, because he starts work 30 minutes later.
On those mornings I pack a 'finger food' breakfast I've baked the day before, some cheese squares for our Merri-dog, and after picking up coffee from our favourite drive through cafe (Zarraffas) we head down to the beach, sit back under the palm trees and enjoy the morning view across the water.
It's a very special start to the last day of what has become a rather long working week for Mr E.
This little detour from the weekly routine helps make each Saturday quite bearable for my beloved, so I like to give extra time to planning and preparing our 'picnic' brekky.
This week I've played around with an old recipe to make it dairy free, wheat free, and sugar free.
Seriously, it was delicious!
In fact, we taste tested so much that it disappeared rather fast, so I'm glad he has a 4-day Easter break and no work on Saturday.
(Although, I will make more cause we'll still go down to the beach - some routines are too good to miss...)
Would you like to try it?
I've shared the recipe over HERE on my 'cooked simply with love' blog where there's a link for you to download and print the recipe for your own files.
Do you eat fish on Good Friday? There's nothing yummier than macadamia crumbed coral trout in my personal seafood menu so I'm off now to buy the fish and some salad trimmings. Then I'll work on that Flower Sugar "Holiday" design...
May you have a blessed and faith filled Easter!
