A Bumper Crop

Not a very rustic basket to put my crop of apples in - but there were so many a laundry basket had to be pressed into service . After last years poor crop - we have a bumper crop this year.
But what to make with them all ? Crumble of course.....and then there was parsnip and apple soup or parsnipple soup as it is known here!
A trip to Newcastle yesterday and I bought some wool to knit a snood for Jenny - and then this quilt book was only £1.99 in a sale! I can't resist a bargain.
This is my next quilting project - an advent calender made from a panel - shouldn't be too difficult I hope.
and at last I have finished the baby cardigan in the lovely soft Bamboo yarn from Sirdar. Isn't it cute.

Happy Quilting xx

We have hardly any apples this year, we live in a frost pocket, and it got all our blossom this year. I have apple envy !!
Love Helen xx
