Monsoon in March..

I have been unable to blog for some time due to various events that came up in my life. Out of the many the one that stands out is that my husband went into dengu shock while in Colombo and was admitted to Hospital by his friends. I was there with him for almost a week while our son was in Kandy with my mother. Thankfully things are back to normal now.

I made home made bread courtesey of Rhonda's recipe at Down to Earth

I also made a storage box using the tutorial on Positively splendid. As I couldn't find canvas I used rexine and sewed it in place using DMC thread punching the holes using a punch needle.

I took part in the Great Big stitched postcard swap (3) hosted by Beth Nicholls of Do What You Love and got this lovely postcard by Antoinette Vogt

And this is the one I made using punch needle embroidery. It was sent to Melissa of the Frugal Style. The postcards can be seen at this Flickr site

I won my very first giveaway! It was hosted by A foothill home companion and I won a lovely book by Ashely English of small measures called Home dairy. Thank you Melissa and Thank you Ashely! I am looking forward to making home made butter and yoghurt..

Till next time...

  1. Hello Dhilma. I'm sorry to read about your husband's illness. I'm glad things are back to normal now. The bread looks good! I hope it was delicious. It looks like you're busy and productive. Keep up the good work.
