Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx

This weekend I finished Gareth and Amy's wedding sampler - in just under 4 weeks this is not bad going and I am really pleased with it. Sentiments to live life by. In case any of you are wondering - Monkeytown is where they got married - a quirky venue for a quirky couple!
(ps - a few of you have asked about the chart - it is Lizzie Kate ABC and I just used the charted letters to write the last line myself. The chart comes as a kit with threads - lots of lovely colours like lettuce leaf, queen bee and secondhand rose - I am such a sucker for nice threads! Stichaholic...who me???)

Hannah--That's just gorgeous, in both aesthetics and sentiment! Did you compose/design it?
Thanks for cheering my Monday!

What a wonderful and unique present. The sentiments are inspiring and the needlework is fantastic (as always!). You really are an inspiration.
