Made for my son 28/01/2011

First time I have knitted with 2 different colours, the button was made from a free kit off a cross stitch magazine.

The homemade beef pastie 1 pasty lasts 2 days...

Experimented with a recipe I had for a cheese and onion braid from Moneysavingexpert forum and instead of filling middle with cheese and onion I filled it with left over meat from beef short ribs, it was delish.

Made 5 jars of various sizes of Marmalade, was really impressed as it has set perfect. Didn't make it with seville oranges but plain big oranges.
