Baking, Babies, Quilts, Wine, Stew – Recipes For LifeMarch 27, 2017 / bydidyoumakethat / Categories : Feeds
Yesterday was a good day. I cooked lunch for three friends, including one who is pregnant with her first baby. I have lived on this planet for so long that I am now going through my second generation of friends who are having babies! It’s a lovely time.
Helpful, then, that In Vino Veritas had allowed some of us to indulge in the second bottle of wine in their Wine Club – the Carusu Etna from Sicily. Yummy, yum, yum. This is super-lovely and made us all wish we were sitting on little wooden chairs beneath the blazing Sicilian sunshine, shaded by olive trees, watching a donkey pull a cart down the dusty street. Instead, we had to settle for London Spring sunshine and Ella rolling around on the sofa – which wasn’t a bad compromise!
Does red wine go with chocolate cake? Discuss. Someone on Instagram asked for the recipe and you can find it here.
Anyway. Babies! This has made me think about quilts. Baby quilts. I’ve never sewn one, but I have two friends expecting right now. The cogs squeakily turned and I put a quilting call out on Twitter. Someone kindly recommended this book.
Any other tips? These coasters are pretty much the only quilting I’ve ever done. I don’t really know what I’m doing here, but I’m happy to give it a go. Me. Baby quilts. Did you ever believe you’d see such a thing?

This fun little dress is (another) Safari Raglan, which is a pattern I am pretty obsessed with at the moment for sewing up quick little dresses and shirts for edison. If it looks familiar you’re pretty spot on, my first ever safari raglan was made up in the same main fabric, hehe. I just don’t really have many knits in my stash that are fun and not like… this ugly blue and this weird purple, and a lot of my sewing is spur of the moment with whatever I have in my stash.read more
