This mornings breakfast. Homemade organic rye and spelt bread, homemade hummus, home-roasted capsicums, parsley from the garden, murray river pink salt, and pepper. Healthy, and so delicious.

The capsicums came from the new market at Cook and Phillip park on Fridays – Hawkesbury Harvest Farmers and Fine Food Market. I was excited to see my favourite stalls from other markets there – Willowbrae, La Tartine, Saltbush Lamb and Eumundi Smokehouse. Friday is my day off so I’ll be a regular patron.  I’m really pleased that Sydney is trying to make farmers markets more accessible to locals, this can only mean good things for the future of our food culture.

My friend Garry is a man who has every gadget and cool thing known to man. He turned 40 on Monday and I was very unsure what to buy him. I decided to make him a gift, something from the heart. He’s really been getting into cooking recently so I decided on making him an apron so he can look stylish while he’s wowing his girlfriend with his latest creations.  I also gave him a very cool barbequeue lighter to go with it.

I got this great heavy Japanese cotton from here. The straps I made myself from some fabric from my stash.  Here Joh is modelling the finished apron.

I made this bag for my beautiful friend Helen. I got the pattern for it from this book.

I used some lovely fabric from here for the outside of the bag. The strap was made from some of my stash fabric, as was the lining. I made a little pocket from some cute floral cotton that I picked up from a thrift shop about a year ago. The little bows came from Mum.

I found the pattern really easy to use, and have since made more bags using the same principal.
