~Borders and Bindings for A Gardener's Journal~
A couple of days ago I wrote that I was wondering which border to use for my Gardener's Journal quilt
I had first cut out this blue paisley way back and thought I would use the red for the outer border...
turns out I wasn't quite sure after seeing it together as the blue was quite busy with no defined 'frame'
As it turned out I didn't have enough of the red for the outer border so it will become the inner border
and the backing (which is cream/brown floral) now will be the outer border
I think I am happier with this combination as the outer border balances the stitcheries and seems to carry on the cream
The red as the outer border seemed to take away from the stitching
Not sure now what I'll do with the back
I'm thinking I might piece some of the leftovers together and use some of the cream outer border for the back as I think I will have enough to do that
Did anyone else do something like that and is there any advice on how to do that as I've never done it before although I have seen it and I quite like the look?
And here are all the blocks together!
After not being able to wet the top of my hand all week (and still not) last night we thought we'd treat ourselves out at Little Restaurant and Bar and have a night off...
A Prawn dish for JoJo and Mr Armchair
A little while ago when we there I saw the menu had Gnocchi made with Blue Cheese, Salted Beetroot and walnuts....YUUUUUMMMM
But I couldn't have that as it wasn't gluten free and Gary (Chef and owner) said that if I let him know next time he will make me a gf one
And blow me down it was delicious
Twice cooked Pork Belly with Roasted Pear on Mash......oh soooooo tasty
A Veal dish and salad for Mr Armchair
And Gary also made a gluten free dessert
Yogurt Cloud Cake......this was as fluffy as a cloud and full of passionfruit flavour topped with Pistachios
Absolutely delicious.......thank you so much Gary
We'll be back another time......but you know that don't you!!!!!!
