What a delightfull treat. I went to my postbox and found a lovely parcel from Pip at Rest Is Not Idleness Pip had made some lovely Quince Paste (which she gives the recipe for on her blog) and wanted to share some with me when I said that I loved it too. The paste arrived all sealed up and in a lovely little box
as well as that Pip included a little red organza bag that held a grogeous red beaded rose pin that she had made, and the cutest little bounding bunny (check these out on her blog also).
My lovely cheese and fruit plate I made last night that featured that yummy Quince Paste.
Thank you so much Pip, the real treasure in that box is friendship.. how wonderful to think that technology enables two people that might not have met under ordinary circumstances to 'meet' and share bounty. Do look at Pips blog, its so nice to see people living a sustainable life in these times when our economy is battling. I think most of us will benefit from becoming more selfsufficient and thats not an imposition.. its rather nice to produce homemade/grown goodies for our families.
