He also didn't like milk, or any dairy. In fact he still doesn't. As a way of getting some milk into him, mum used to mix the red lemonade with milk for him. This suited me too, I loved all things dairy, still do, but I also loved these homemade milkshakes.
Remember these blocks? These were my stash bee blocks from last year. The plan was to make a calm collected red and white plus quilt. When I laid them all out, it just didn't feel right. Not calm enough, not sophisticated enough.
The overall look just reminded me of those long ago picnic, white bread jam sandwiches and the newspaper spread all over the grass. I know exactly where I am going now with these blocks, in fact I would say I am crushing these blocks (red fruit crush, geddit?)
It is absolutely lashing here today, but I will leave you with thoughts of lazy warm summer days, bees buzzing and those strawberry jam sandwiches, sponge cake and milk shakes.
