A knock at the door.

Sarah, a neighbour's daughter and her friend are there. The friend's family have a farm and the girls have been picking potatoes. Would we like to buy some? I agree and they go home, only to return with a huge carrier bag full of spuds.

How much? They ask.

Three pounds? I venture, unsure of the true value of potatoes.

Five pounds? They suggest.

Are they New Potatoes? I enquire further.

Weeel, they came out of the field this morning........

Eventually we weigh the potatoes and calculate the value according to some we already have in a cupboard which are conveniently sporting a price label.

The girls go home with six whole pounds. Haggling is obviously not my thing.

In other news - I made a quilt.

I love those colors. How big is it? How did you stitch it? Are you looking forward to winter now? Do I have anymore questions? Hmmm, let me think, nope thats it.

Beautiful! And with the smug satisfaction of recycling, too!

What an absolutely gorgeous quilt! I can imagine simple embroidery working well on it too. I'm inspired! Thanks! =]
