What To Do With 18 Eggs?

Hi there!

Here they are, a bowl of 18 lovely eggs from my friend. 
 Blue, green, white and brown and very yellow inside.

Obviously I needed to do some baking, so over the last week or so we've had.....
not 1, not 2 but 3 Victoria Sponges...
Chocolate Brownies, made by DS....

Chocolate Chip Cookies (no piccy)  and Scones.....

and that was the end of the eggs.

The weather has still been changeable, some strong winds again but as there was some sunshine yesterday, me and Mr Clicky went for a wander around some local footpaths.

Through a field of good looking wheat
past lots of lovely dry stone walls
with interesting yellow lichen
and through a squeeze stile.
We also saw this beautiful double flowered pink May blossom.
So a nice wander, just Mr Clicky and Me.

Back home and I finished sewing up that Copper Jumper.  It's blocking right now so pictures next time.
I've cast on a hat, which has been in the queue for some time, I'm only on the ribbing right now, using magic loop rather than my usual double pointed needles.  
Going fine so far.
This hat has some colourwork, but I'm telling you no more!

Right I'm off now...have fun.
Bye for now.....................Clicky Needles.

P.S.  I've just read this back and feel I need to clarify 'good looking wheat'.  I mean it's looking really thick and healthy due to all this rain we've been having and the ears are forming, if the sun comes out I'm predicting a good harvest this year.
I guess you can take the girl from the farm but you can't take the farm from the girl!


  1. Oh wow, you made good with those beautiful eggs! The scones look yummy to me. Love the photos from the walk.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  2. I have one word - YUM!!!! :)

  3. That's a lot of baking! Your goodies look quite tasty :) It sounds like you had a lovely walk as well. I look forward to seeing your latest creation!

  4. Must. Have. Sugar!
    I love all your photos, they are so pretty.

  5. Mmm, yummy baking. I've just eaten a glut of home baking and am now not going to eat any more cake for a while. Doesn't hurt to look though!
    Love the lichen covered stones.

  6. How about pickled eggs for next time? I did some on Monday and now they're in a dark place in the pantry ready for eating in a couple of weeks!

  7. Not one poached egg from all of those? Shame.

    Love the May flower, never seen a double one.

  8. Hey you. Hope you are well.
    I am now really hungry after reading such a scrummy post.
    Look forward to seeing your new creation.
    Maybe we could meet for a coffee soon?

  9. What a great cook you are! I'd love to get my sponges to rise like that ... I must never let my family see yours or they will know that home-made Victoria sponges are not actually meant to have the same depth as a biscuit! :-)
    Lovely blog :-)

  10. Just wanted to stop by to say Hello. I might not comment regularly but I do read your post. Stay Cool!


Thanks so much for popping in to read my ramblings!
Please leave a comment ~ I do appreciate them.
