Saturday again and that means the start of the new challenge over at Allsorts.  This week my lovely teamie Mervi is the host and she has chosen

With the weather we have had this week it certainly feels like winter is not far away so a good time to start those christmas cards/projects.

Hi Susan

Welcome home from your holiday. I hope you had a lovely break.

Your Christmas card is lovely. That gorgeous ribbon matches your backing paper perfectly.

Yep .. .. we have been swamped with runner beans this year .. .. and courgettes, tomatoes and cucumbers. I am actually quite fed up with eating and freezing runner beans now (and we haven't even eaten all the ones I froze last year yet LOL!!).

I make a lovely courgette and cheese soup .. .. I wonder if there is an equally lovely one that uses frozen runner beans!! Might have to get searching.

I hope you had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
