Did you smell it then? I love making marmalade and chutney and as a friend gave me a huge bag full of plums today, I decided to make some chutney. It's great fun to do and so very easy, but it stinks! Boiling vinegar for over an hour really makes the eyes water (to mention nothing of the pound of finely chopped onions!) But it was a sunny and breezy day so all the windows were open. So I stank the village out instead!

I finally got my invitation to Ravelry. I haven't a clue what I'm supposed to be doing, seems like a good way to use up any spare time. I don't have any spare time though. But still I spend ages trying to work it all out. It's getting me a bit cross (with myself and lack of will power) because I'm spending so long on the computer, there's no time left to knit. So I'm going now. I have every intention of finishing Forest Canopy this week and will be very cross if I don't due to time spent on this machine. Bah!

not smelly surely - scented! :) what a domestic goddess you are.
I felt a bit like that about ravelry but it isnt too hard to get your essentials on there. have to admit I dont have all my details sorted yet. but it is great to see everyone's work, seeing different versions of various patterns. What will your user name be?
ooooh - can't wait to see your fcs!

oh boy...those chutney smells! Barry stinks us out from time to time but his apple and tomato chutney via Nigella is delicious and sought after in our family! Makes your eyes water though doesn't it?
