Pretties and noms

Tell me if you're getting sick of seeing me cut shapes in leather.  I won't listen but you can moan all you want! ;)

I've finished the chrysanthemum and I've made another bird cut out but this time in a circle.

I really like how they look held up to the light:

The chrysanthemum makes me think of the inside of a lotus root.  I didn't do a pattern for this, I just cut and am amazed at the pattern I can see in it!  I find it a bit mesmerising.

And so onto the noms.  We have a blueberry bush in the back garden and so far this year it's yielded 210g, so I made them into muffins!  Mmmmmmm!  Haven't tried one yet as they're hot out of the oven.  I've also just finished making blackberry muffins too as had five punnets for £1 as the green grocer was trying to sell them off at the end of the day.  Have to say they're the most enormous blackberries I've ever seen!  So that's one punnet down, only four more to go!  I'm thinking pie...

blueberry muffins mmmmmmmmm

Can't you just smell them?  Go on then, have one!
