Five good things to begin the month of February.
Mooncake tins that my sister-in-law collected for me - I am the family repository for empty tins, and the best ones are those that contained mooncakes. No matter how many tins I am given, I can always find things to keep in them
New patches - this is the first time I've included synthetic fabrics with my usual silks, cottons and linens. I had a joyful frenzy of cutting and tacking and playing mix and match on Saturday night while listening to Billie Holliday
The new tube of toothpaste coincided with the new toothbrush - how often does this happen?
A ricotta recipe that works beautifully thanks to the September 2009 post 'Pour, drain, twist, eat' on six and a half stitches. I like it best made with goat's milk. (Coles supermarket stocks goat milk if you are far from a goat farm)
I found this magical book by John Masefield, which may need a post to itself. Later. Tomorrow.
