milk_thistle And my favourite part of the shoes- the soles! So when bub crawls around, little bunnies will pop up and say hello🐇 2w

milk_thistle I made baby shoes!!! Bound for the feet of my cousin's still-in-the-oven bubba girl. Fiddly, but oh so cute! 2w
  •   minnie_and_mas CUTE!!!!! they r fiddly hey?! i tried making zo a pair and threw in the towel hahahaha 2w
  •   rainyg56 I love the shape of the front part of the foot!!! Gorgeous fabric too. 2w
  •   ringosgirl Precious!!!! 2w
  •   milk_thistle @minnie_and_mas The first shoe nearly did my head in, but once I understood how it all came together, it was easier. Its a pattern from my 'Meet Me At Mike's' book. I'll take pics and send them to! The pattern bits are simple too 2w

milk_thistle Also bought these map fabric panels too! I love anything to do with geography- maps, atlases, globes etc, so it was only a matter of time before my fabric/geography obsession collided! 2w
  •   rainyg56 Oh wow darlin. I love them. What's the plan for them? 2w
  •   milk_thistle @rainyg56 Hmmm not sure yet. The USA one will probably hang somewhere, the world one might turn into something. Cushion? Tote? Triangular pennant? Undecided... so it can sit and wait for a project 2w

milk_thistle Cannot WAIT to eat this!! Chilli, lemon zest and fennel rubbed chicken, with roasted fennel and spelt grains with parsley. Have tasted. Seriously YUM. 2w
  •   mellissad76 I didn't know you could just eat fennel like that! What does it taste like? 2w
  •   rainyg56 Oh Melly @mellissad76 you have not lived. I'll send you the best recipe for caramelised fennel. I've have never tasted fennel any better. 2w
  •   rainyg56 Oh Triny, that looks delish! Mmmmmmmm 2w
  •   milk_thistle @mellissad76 It's so sweet and mellow, really yummy. I just drizzled olive oil on wedges of it, plus salt n pepper. Oven at 180 for about 20-30 mins. The recipe Mum is talking about above is really nice too! 2w
  •   mellissad76 @rainyg56 @milk_thistle I think I should just come stay and you can make it for me 2w
  •   rainyg56 That's a deal my sweet sweet Melly @mellissad76 any time at all. 2w

milk_thistle The finished product of my harvest. Bit of a strange combo of quinoa and wild rice, kale, mint, parsley, capsicum, tomato, apple, celery, salted capers and chilli tomato chutney as a dressing. Tastes pretty delish though! 4w
