Catching up...

If you've been keeping up, you will have read that our camping trip ended early....and with that was the missed opportunity to roast marshmallows over the camp fire.  Luckily we came up with a great solution and were able to roast them over our bucket BBQ.  Surprising it worked incredibly well.



This weekend I went to visit Crafts & Quilts on the A5 near Weedon.  They have just moved into a new and larger shop at the back of the Heart of the Shires.  The shop looked wonderful and has so much more natural light that it did before.  Here are a few snaps my sister took while I was busy shopping :o)





Until next time...

Toasting marshmallows takes me right back almost 40 years to being a girl guide and heading off on pack nights up out of the village we lived in to a farmer's field on the edge of some woods to make campfires and toast those marshmallows - I can vividly remember cutting into the turf in an H shape and peeling it back to light a fire with tinder found in the nearby woods on the damp earth beneath where the grass had been - then once the fire was doused we'd unroll the turf and cover the fire area back up again - it looked almost as though no-on had even been there - happy days!

Those mallows are looking pretty good to me.

The photos from the shop are so colorful and pretty. I'll bet they are glad to be in a larger place with better lighting.

Those marshmallows look yummy! I've been afraid to try them on our grill for fear they'd fall in and muck everything up -- I need to get a little bucket grill and devote it exclusively to s'mores! ;-)

I've probably asked you this before - but lenses are you using on your camera?
