The Week That Was

I have been a little under the weather of late, thus explaining my short absence from the lovely blogging sphere...
But while I have been somewhat quiet with my writing, my hands have not been idle, for there is always something to be done, sewn or baked, and today I find myself pretty tired after quite a busy week...

Let me give a you a glimpse life lately...

Whilst watching Sense and Sensibility again in the evenings, I embroidered a few leaves onto the new patchwork cushion I am stitching...
I dearly love the story of Sense and Sensibility, but I have come to realise I prefer the 2009 BBC adaption...how about you?

We began our week with these lovely gourmet burgers!  Hmmm...how good they were!  

 Autumn has offically arrived, and I rejoice in the cooler weather which we should hopefully experience soon!  Look how beautifully these kale seedlings are growing!

...A busy week for stitching...
I am going away in April, and thus have to ensure I have enough stock to see me through the markets, which my sweet sister has kindly agreed to do for me during my absence...


I have sadly neglected Heartmade's blog as well lately, but I intend to share some of my new creations in the upcoming week!  Here is a new Miss Lettice I made this week...

Easter is near at hand and we have begun our Easter craftting!

  Do stay tuned for a craft tutorial post coming within the next few days or so!

 
Then there was some lovely baking... 
My mom and I had lovely Honey and Muesli muffins at a coffee shop last week, and we enjoyed them so much that we decided to try them ourselves!
Recipe coming very soon!

 ...With all the eggs we have been using for our crafting recently, we have been able to enjoy using them in our kitchen more regularly too!  And lots of eggs means French toast, does it not...?

Oh, and I have some lovely news to share...  Our two little hens, Ethel and Edith (my younger sisters named them, in case you are wondering...) have begun to lay eggs for us! 
Of course their eggs are still very small, but how exciting, for these hens are the daughters of Sybil, one of our original hens who surprised with a clutch of chicks last spring.

We have had such warm weather lately...  Miss Rebekah cuddles her guinea pig, Hot Cross Bun outside...

How was your week, dear friends...?

Mmm….those burgers are making my mouth water! What's in them? I'm going to be very interested to read your easter egg tutorial. I always hard boil eggs and then dye them, but this looks so much more pretty and delicate.
A Happy Sunday to you!

Thank you so much for your sweet visit, CGrace!
Well, I made a simple mushroom sauce with cream which I spooned onto each burger and added a slice of white cheddar and a pineapple ring - simple yet oh! So good indeed!
Tutorial will hopefully be posted on Tuesday, so stay tuned! I was actually quite surprised to find how easy removing the contents of an egg was! I'm sure you will have lots of fun using the empty eggs - you could die them, decoupage them...the ideas are endless!
A very happy Sunday to you as well! Hope your day is wonderful:)
Hugs and much love!

All those food pictures look SO delicious :) Looking forward to your recipe posts!! I must say, that last photo of your little sister is beyond adorable! <3

So sorry to hear that you haven't been feeling well- we know what that's like- last month that was us. Hope you feel better real, real soon, dear friend!!

And happy Autumn to you- that's probably my most favorite season, with Spring coming in at a close second :) Hope your upcoming week is beautifully blessed! Love and hugs to you!

Sorry to hear you've been under the weather. You sure didn't let it keep you from being productive though. You have been busy making sweet crafts and cooking some tasty foods. The kale sprouts are so pretty. You'll be enjoying it before you know it! Prayers for a lovely week Kelly-Anne!

Hugs to you,
Vicky

I so enjoyed the peek into your week! The little bunny you have sewn is adorable. I will look forward to your tutorial and recipe. : )

Kelly-Anne @ Beautiful Girlhood said...

Oh...sweet Libby! Your kind words blessed my heart this morning, my friend! You poured a little sunshine into my soul:)
Well, I intend to post the recipes very soon! And I do hope you enjoy them!
We are the same, you know - Autumn is also my favourite season, with spring just behind it!
Bless you and praying your day is beautiful!
Hugs and love to you!

Kelly-Anne @ Beautiful Girlhood said...

Thank you dear Vicky! I so appreciate your kind words! The few sniffles and sore throat are practically gone now, Praise the Lord, so I can resume all my favourite tasks! :)
Hope your week is blessed and lovely and that you are enjoying spring thus far!

Kelly-Anne @ Beautiful Girlhood said...

Hello dear Sarah and thank you for your lovely visit! Popping over to your blog now for a catch up!
Blessings and love!

Well, it looks like your last week had some lovely moments despite your being under the weather. I hope you are quite recovered by now! You're certainly much more industrious than I am when sick. ;)
Mm, the burgers and French toast look yummy. French toast is one of my favorite foods!
Rebekah's guinea pig is so cute!

Kelly-Anne @ Beautiful Girlhood said...

Good morning Paige! Thank you so much for your sweet visit, my friend! Thankfully, I am much recovered now, but I unfortunately passed on the sniffles to my little sisters:(
Hope your week has been lovely and blessed!
Many hugs to you!
