Health benefits of Rhubarb and it's juice

I thought that I had read somewhere recently (probably the daily paper) that rhubarb juice was beneficial to health. So when I harvested lots of the said stuff on Tuesday I decide to save all the juice as I had added too much water and it needed to be poured off. Anyway here are some very good links to places that tell us all about this wonderful juice. It taste lovely and you can even make a mix with oranges as well, check these out as it's worth a try. Also try googling ' Health benefits of Rhubarb juice' as lots of other sites and info came up.,1-0,rhubarb_juice,FF.html

And here is one from good old 'Waitrose' must be good if they have a recipe. If you try it and like it please let me know.

I think Florence liked her throw, but --

she would rather get on with her new walking skill, and couldn't wait to take the throw off and get down, she did look cute wrapped in it though, and her mummy loved it.

At last ! Florence's throw is finished.

Finished at last and ready to wrap in lovely tissue to give to her for Easter. I love it, but I can't wait to get on and try something new. I showed it to my daughter this evening and she wants one for her double bed in similar colours. I will start it and do it inbetween other projects as she isn't in any hurry for it (thank goodness) but I was pleased that she liked it enough to want one. I just hope my daughter-in-law likes it too. I haven't told her that I was making it for Florence, so it will be a complete surprise.

I picoted along the edge, but it didn't suit the throw, it looked too dainty for the chunky squares. So I undid it and decided on a straight edge using some of the main colours and worked it in double crochet. I love this stitch it's so firm and has a nice thickness about it, so it was a perfect choice for along the edges.

Sorry about all the photo's but I couldn't decide which ones to post that would show all the details.
