Post Wimbledon

Can't write today's entry without mentioning Andy Murray winning Wimbledon on Sunday!

Today was a scorcher, too hot to eat outside and so we settled in the sitting room, windows flung wide and the fan to move the air around! Didn't stop the tea and chat from flowing.

No big projects on the go today so no sewing machines required. Janet and I both had quilts to bind ...
Janet's midnight stars

Alison was preparing an applique block

Amanda was chilling after a busy weekend.  Caroline was at work - although she was able to join us for lunch :}

The Girls asked me to share the recipe we had for lunch ...
1 chicken breast per person (I sliced each into slightly smaller portions)
The marinade per chicken breast
      2 tbsp natural yogurt
      1/4 tsp each of chilli powder; salt; crushed cumin & coriander seeds
      1/2 tsp crushed cardamom pod
      1/2 tsp each of tumeric; root ginger
      1 clove crushed garlic
(I also added some leftover tomato paste, onion ... and bits of leftovers from jars in the fridge!)

After lunch we looked at the layout of my  scrappytrip  around the world blocks. Ladies - I still think the bottom left hand corner needs tweaking a little looking at the photo?

Things are looking a little quiet on the Tuesday front for the next couple of months as we enjoy the Summer.
