Homemade gluten-free apple tart with ginger, lemon and hazelnut

Because it is nice to enjoy life with good healthy and fresh food, I have just baked an apple tart following a recipe from the book La Tartine Gourmande.

I have also enjoyed the little "mise en scène" for the photo shoot with props taken directly in my garden ;-)

Yummy and enough to give me strength for the rest of the renovation ;-)


I'm happy to stop by to say "hi" to all of you and as  a treat, here is a corner of my workshop which is now just waiting for me to have some free time ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend  wherever you are,

 PS : I guess you have understood that it is hard for me to stay away from my blog ....

Until later,

#21 Summer blog vacation

Hello everyone,

I first wanted to thank you for all your kind comments on my summer photos. It was nice to read them. It was a fun break from the renovation work.

As far as the renovation is concerned, I knew it would be A LOT OF work.... and I haven't been disappointed ;-)

I still have three weeks of hard work and then some finishing touches here and there when the joiner will have finished his part.

So far, I am very happy with how it turns out... though there have been some problems with the windows.  It is going to be fixed but it delays a bit the finishing time.

The good news, though is that my office/ workshop is completely finished and I will put everything back into place on Sunday. All my quilting and stitching stuff will come back to life again! Yipee!!!!

I will work a lot to finish what I have to finish before August 20th so that I have 10 days to prepare my next school year. That's why I put the blog on vacation this month and will be back in September.

Thanks again for stopping by, leaving a comment. Happy quilting and stitching to you all.

Until later,
