We are on a relaxing break away - doing what I love "SEWING" and watching Movies .... this break away I decided to start finishing some of my UFO's.....   My English Pieced Grandmother's Flower Garden is first on the list -  I hate to admitt this but I do have quiet a few projects unfinished...  this lovely quilt is all hand pieced and as you can see from the photos the fabrics are some what older than we see on todays shevles at Glenrose Patchwork ......  I started this before I opened my business 14 years ago and I'm very excited at last I'm getting closer to having it finished.

We would love you all to share your UFO's and photos -...

Hello and welcome to another week on the blog.  We have had a few requests for Glenis's beautiful Scone receipe with jam and cream.....

Glenis's Scones..

Place in a bowl  -  2 Heaped cups of Self Raising Flour and 1/4 cup sugar.

Place in a 500ml tupperware shaker - 300ml cream, 2 eggs and the fill to the top with milk - then shake.

Tip into bowl with dry ingredients and mix with a knife.  The mixture should be sticky but hold shape and drop off the spoon - not like a cake mixture.  Spray baste muffin tins with oil and drop spoonfulls into the muffin trays.    Makes 12 scones..... Set oven at approx 185 degree for about 15mins...

New this week -  "Hickory Road" designed by Jo Morton from Moda , available on website  http://www.glenrosepatchwork.com/fabrics/fabrics_hickory%20road.
