You might remember a little while back that I showed you some of the goregous crochet blankets my mother in law had made and that I was putting them in the shop. Well they sold quickly! I was so excited for my mother in law Sevim!
And now she is busy working on a few custom orders! The photos at the very top and below are of a quick swatch she made for one of the orders - isn't it gorgeous? After some fine tuning, she's now making up the final blanket. I'll be sure to show you it once she's done - its already look amazing!
And here is the limonata recipe I mentioned last week, translated into English. Yay! I have been sipping away on this just about every evening here...soooo good.
- juice of 5 lemons
- half a glass of sugar
- 1.5 glasses of cold water
-7 -8 ice cubes
1. Put the sugar and half a glass of the water in a small pot. Stir constantly over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Turn off the heat as soon as the sugar has dissolved. Leave the water to cool. [I put mine in the freezer to speed things up]
2. Put the lemon juice, the sugar syrup and 1 glass of cold water in a jug. Add about 7 - 8 ice cubes to serve.
I used the above mix as a base and then added extra cold water depending on the tastes of the person drinking it. I like mine in a glass with lots of extra ice and it's delicious served with some fresh mint in the glass too. Some places here serve limonata garnished with a finely cut green apple. It's a perfect combination :)
