Hello Friday

It's a gorgeous day here in Melbourne, far too nice to be stuck inside sewing. But before I head outside to potter around in the garden, I quickly finished off the Quince Jelly I started on Wednesday. It turned out beautifully! It's not quite as red as I would like, but its a fine line between developing the colour, and over-cooking it. Last time I made beautifully red quince jelly it needed to be microwaved every time you wanted to spread some on toast.

Miss Lola is settling in well, and Millie seems to be opening up more to her. They enjoy a game of rough and tumble around the lounge room at night. Millie looks so vicious, but her tail is wagging madly and she never actually hurts Lola.

I did catch Lola stealing clothes from my bedroom last night though...I'm not sure what she planned to do with them!

I want some of your Quince Jelly, Kate! Yum!!!!!!!!!!
A lady my hubby used to work with had quince and apple trees and would make a jelly with both. To Die For.
It's lovely that Lola is settling in so well. My new kitty is still finding her way here with the other two cats but it seems to be evening out a bit.
I think the clothes thing is to do with smell. She loves you! :)

Your jelly is such a beautiful jewel colour. Your puppies aer gorgeous. Perhaps Lola finds your scent reassuring.
