On Sunday morning my nine year old niece and i went scrumping!!
Okay that is not strickely true, in fact we had permission from the local cottage hospital to pick any apples we wanted, but there is something, kind of,  "Huckleberry Finn" about scrumping.
We picked a basketful and took them home to make apple pie. 
Clearly there is no picture of the pie but it did not last long enough, we all tucked into it with delight!!! There are still plenty of apples left so jam and chutney to follow.

These are a pair of felted slippers that i am experimenting with making for Christmas pressies,(not this pair). They are not yet finished since they have no soles nor any pretty decorations but, my niece assures me they are cooo-el. Which i am sure you'll understand is praise indeed!
