Yesterday it was my day off so dear Caitlin came to visit. We had planned some crafty and cooking adventures. And although we spent a good part of the day talking and laughing, we did do some crafting. In preparation for the festive season I thought it'd be nice to do some homemade printed cards, wrapping paper, tags and fabric strips for bags. Caitlin opted for potatoes and I for lino: I am quite smitten with these dragonflies!We also got to do a little sewing. I finished off two bag orders headed for Madrid, Spain - and Caitlin made herself a little tote from some beautiful vintage tapestry fabric (look out for photos on her blog!)
It has a hot Tuesday - and in all this printing, talking, eating, dancing we really worked up a sweat. So we decided to live off the most summery and refreshing drink I know: Watermelon + Rosewater Crush:
Watermelon + Rosewater Crush
- chopped watermelon flesh (more than 2-3 cups worth)
-1 cup of crushed ice
-1-2 tablespoons good quality rosewater (I find the organic rosewater at PerfectPotion is much better tasting and smelling than the supermarket stuff)
Whizz up in a blender or with a bar mixer until all combined. You can add more watermelon or ice or rosewater to taste. You can also try adding some fresh mint leaves or some strawberries.
