Brr .. Cold Grey Day .. Looking To Summer Makes... and A Cat!

Hello there ..
Brrrrr.. its been a cold grey day today ..
I think my mood has kinda matched the day ...

 It must be pie kinda weather .. and putting the oven on helps warm up the house.
I made a simple veg and meat pie .. 
mostly what veg I had (that needed using up) and a little bit of mince to give it a semblance of a meat pie.
I think any kind a pie is good .. its the pastry isn't it!
Naughty but nice...

The other ..not so glamorous .. peculiar looking thing is a bit of leftover pastry .. spread with the last of the cranberry jelly (so that I could free the fridge of another half used thing .. and wash the jar)
.. sprinkle of brown  sugar and a handful of sultanas ..
and folded over.
Usual thing .. what I had to hand.

Hubby P has bagged it for his 'snap' tomorrow at work.
Who else calls lunch/work snacks 'snap' ..
 I wonder is a northern thing?

So tea was sorted .. what else .. 
I needed to do some kind of work thing .. but wanted to be warm and cosy ..
Hubby P went outside in the workshop ..
 but blow that .. too cold.

 A big box of these dressmaking patterns came in yesterday ... so I had a sort through them .. lots of the 'easy and quick' ones too.
Ideal for the sewing novice .. and I noticed .. good realistic sizes (as in not for stick thin people). 

I sell a lot on the stall quite cheap and cheerful  .. they are so expensive to buy new from the shops
 .. I sorted out a good mixed bunch and thought I would try them on eBay.

I thought people might be looking to summer and easy sewing makes .. little tops ..
 and pretty summery skirts and dresses..

I for one am beginning to miss the warmth of the sun .... and I am wearing so many layers I feel like an onion..
 So that has been me today ...

Oh .... and the cat .. with that 'what you up to then' look!

Take care .. keep warm  xx
