This week, while shopping, I happened to find myself in the book aisle of my local supermarket and my eyes fell on this beautiful book. It's called Aprons and Silver Spoons by Mollie Moran and is all about the life of a kitchen maid in the 1930s. Well fancy!
|I love this cover|
Mollie Moran is still alive, though nearly 100 now and this is a lovely book, full of her memories of her time serving the gentry, accompanied with photos and recipes from the time! I'm so glad I'm not a maid!
This week also saw a crochet challenge between Lottie and myself. Those of you who read Lazy Daisy Jones' blog will know that she has already made a load of squares for her blanket from Mollie Makes issue 24. When I saw Lottie on Monday, I asked if she fancied making this blanket too. We decided that we could just about manage these squares even with our limited crocheting skills!
A trip to the wool shop later and we were off. I have to admit, Lottie got to grips with the squares much quicker than I did, and by the time she left for home, had nearly completed one, whilst I had unravelled my attempt to begin again.

We have both persevered though and I've made 9 squares out of the 80 it suggests!

I hope you've enjoyed your week too.
