Do you want to know a secret ?

Do you promise not to tell? oh, oh, oh closer, let me whisper in you ear.....More on that later.

I have to tell you about my belated FNwF. I had big plans, why do i even bother making plans? They never work out the way i want. I have the flu, then my day didn't go the way i planned but in compensation that is when i learned the secret so all can be forgiven. I started working on this late in the afternoon
had to stop thanks to osteo arthtitis & arthritis. That night i finished the wording on this
Started the last block
& finished it Sunday night. I spent all most all Sunday making these
apple & beetroot chutney, choko chutney, lemon butter & passionfruit butter. I have to show you the cake from the Clandsetine Cake Club book. I chose to make Dutch Chocolate cake first
Now about my secret & forgive me if i yell it out but it's such exciting news. I'M GOING TO BE A GRANDMA. YAY. Happy Dance in my house.

Happy Stitching,
