New reading and drooling material.

 I'm sure I remember promising myself that I would start my sewing year with a girly Kindle cover and a specs case. Why then am I taking up curtains?
Never mind, here's my reward. I've seen a quilt along on a few blogs and drooled. 
So I just had to get the clicky finger into action, who knows, maybe I'll play catch up.

Back on the subject of beetroot. It seems to be a bit like Marmite, you either love it or hate it. I do like beetroot. Not that nasty pickled stuff you get in jars though, the vinegar just kills off the flavour. Fresh cooked beetroot on all manner of scrummy dishes or with a salad. I've tried one or two pickles and chutneys and eventually found a sweet recipe, with lots of apples and cider vinegar. I've tweaked it to suit of course. :-p

Household sewing has it's rewards :) I have no idea what beetroot is. However, it seems you have found your best use of it and enjoy it--that's a good thing!
