Life has been as busy as ever since my last post. In April I went on a basket weaving course which was excellent – I have made a few rather wonky baskets or should I say rustic! I now have a bag of sticks soaking in the garden so that I can have another go tomorrow.
I also currently have a batch of cider bubbling away on the draining board, two demijohns of Rhubarb wine in the spare bedroom and plans to start a batch of Elderflower wine next week as the flowers are just starting to open. I was very dubious last year when I had my first go at Hedgerow style wine making but the Rhubarb wine was very crisp and had a delicate flavour. On checking the box of Elderflower recently I found that several of the bottles had popped their corks so I will bottle them this year in Ginger beer style bottles – again the flavour was good with a bit of fizz.
Mostly however I have been creating items for the Craft Stall that my friend Bridget and I had last Saturday but more of that later….
