Home made Tomato Chutney

My pantry is bursting with the delights of our garden.
This time it is Tom Chutney, and it is beautiful.. Love it on hot buttered toast :))
Again made with Black Russian Tomatoes, garlic, from our garden..
We have had to pick our grapes early this season as the birds are having a real picnic..
The Chef hopes to be making grape juice from, and  grapes our good friends T&J so freely gave to us..
Don't they look wonderful?? I can tell you they are so sweet and juicy ..

But now a little crochet..
A visit to a wool shop in the city today , (which I would describe as an Aladins Cave of every fibre and colour of yarn one could use ) I settled for 6 balls (50gr) of Wendy, Peter Pan, DK..
I just have to make the most cutest baby dress pattern .. Dorothy pointed me into the direction of Etsy for this and I will post a pic when I have completed it..

Another pot holder from this Mama's site, It is crocheted in Sugar and Cream and is thick It would also make a great dish cloth..
I think thats it from me for now, enjoy the rest of your week..

I know mine is not perfect, but I got the hang of it , now all I need to do is to watch it again so I can make it larger.. The st is called "Entrelac"..
Afghan or Tunisian st ..
