Brambles beret and Gramma pie

 This is Miss M's hat
when i started little Misses hat, Miss M asked if she was getting one?
of course, what would you like .....?

"don't know".. . . .  was the reply
 so i visited my favourite free online knitting site,
and after opening many sites i found this
Miss M likes berets so the pattern was approved and i set to work, 


this is not Miss M modelling the Beret, 
(she avoids the camera as much as possible)
i think the beret came out really nice. . . .and i enjoyed the challenge of the cables
maybe i should look for one for me. . . . 


do you remember this picture, and i challenged you to tell me 
what it was well it is a 
Gramma
i grew up around an area where pumpkins and Gramma's were a favoured crop
so  Gramma pie's have been a staple in my household
 since i was pretty young



this year for the first time i had a go at making it myself, 
the recipe  i made was pretty close to what my mum 
has always made,
 the pastry looked pretty rough
but the pie tasted great and was extremely popular, 
both pies were gone within 3 days
(we shared them with our neighbours and friends)
i have  lots more gramma, and a new recipe to try . . . 
so i guess it is back to the kitchen


i decided to do some playing with some night photography,
a glow stick, a tripod and a camera, heaps of fun
i know it looks fuzzy but that's not because the camera moved 
it 's the movement of the glowstick, i like the effect though
all you need is LOVE


i finished late this afternoon
and this is what i saw from the verandah
after seeing the beautiful sunset from  Chooky's place
 I thought i would share my sunset with you

hope you all are happy and healthy 
and your hands are busy doing what you love

You've brought back memories! I haven't had gramma pie for quite some time- in fact it is a long time since I even saw gramma for sale- my nana loved it and I remember mum making it when we were young. Yum! Do you think pumpkin would substitute??
