I bought a Edible Garden Book I did not like it too much , but it is probably the sauce I cooked it in. :( :(
I can't do great things, so I do little things with love.

Sounds like that ready made French pastry that is like chewy cardboard. Bet your book was tastier. :lol:

Ooh, I'll pay you good money to make me a copy of her frock.....(if you buy Thrifty Gardener, you'll see she is also the Thrifty Clothes Buyer / Thrifty Photography Session organiser, as she seems to wear the same 70s dress in each and every photo..). I can across a rather promising dress in the Shelter shop today - it was long, but I figured I could have altered it (my sewing experience consists of hacking things off with scissors and then hemming them by hand), but then I saw that it was a size 20, and I wouldn't have a clue how to take things in.......I am HOPELESS.

If you can magically make my arms twig-like, and give me her thighs, I will pay you even more. Don't worry about the hair, I already have Alys hair, except mine is brown (with increasing amounts of white).
I took my dog to play frisbee. She was useless. I think I need a flatter dog.

lol - I love the fabrics - found some old curtains at a catholic rescue centre the other day and am just in the process of working out whether I can get a dress or just a top out of them. I would also pay good money for the stick like arms and thighs because I would have to starve myself of too many nice things in order to look like that.
