I thought it would be nice to share some highlights from December. As you'd expect, a fair bit of baking went on! I also finished off my hot water bottle cover. I made it following this loose pattern by Coco Rose and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Most of the Christmas break was spent up in the North East where we had a great time seeing family and friends. We had a lovely trip to Whitby for some tasty fish and chips. It was bloomin' cold though and Mr Makes said my head looked like a giant fondant fancie with my pink woolly hat on.

From top: sherry, mince pies, sour cherry chocolate brownies, cherry and vanilla cupcakes with more mince pies, me in Whitby, snowmen meringues, more meringues, my finished hot water bottle cover, key lime pie (or lime lime pie as we called it, because I have no idea where to find key limes).


  1. Looks like a magazine piece! It all looks far too yummy. The hot water bottle cover is lovely - I love the texture of the stitch you have used.

    1. Thanks :-) for the hot water bottle cover I used super chunky yarn and a 7mm hook for a tight textured finish.

  2. Hei! I just found your blog and it is amazing!

    I am following your blog and I hope you will follow mine too!

  5. Wow, you were busy. I love these round-up posts and those little snowmen are really cute! x
