Hello, Thankfully the zucchini
season is coming to an end. We have had a very good season and have had zucchinis coming out
our ears. I have shared them with friends, family, neighbours and every
one at work. Out of desperation I have found lots of new recipes.
One of my favourite finds is Clotilde Dusoulier's Chocolate Zucchini Cake recipe. This is a beautifully moist chocolate cake. Clotilde is a French food writer based in
Paris. Clotilde had a great anecdote about zuchinnis which I which I thought was very funny. "An
American friend once explained to me that nobody ever locks their car in her
small town… except when it’s zucchini season. Leave your door
unlocked then, and you risk coming back to find a crate of zucchini left on
your passenger seat." Perhaps
I could try this tactic next year.

Todays card is for the challenge at Less is More - Monochrome.
Hello! I have just arrived home from a
weekend away.My sister and I spent the
weekend at Portarlington (a small seaside town on the Bellarine Peninsula).The weather was warm which allowed us to do
some walking.But the main reason we got
together was to do some crafting, the results of which I will show you later, when
I have put the finishing touches.

back. I had annual leave in January. January is a good
time to take leave because it is the most reliable time of the year for
good weather. It didn’t disappoint, some days it reached 40OC.
The Bendigo Art
Gallery had an exclusive Edith Head costume exhibition on during January.
Edith Head worked on 1,000s of films and won 8 Academy Awards. She
dressed stars such as Dorothy Lamour, Mae West, Barbara Stanwick and Veronica
Lake. A friend and I drove up and really enjoyed it.
So now to the card
I have made for the Less is More Challenge - Dry Embossing.
