Merry Christmas Cakes

It's that time of year again. I'm talking about festive cake decorating, obviously. This years effort is Star Wars themed of course!

Here are some of my favourites from previous years :-)

Happy Easter

Hey folks! As you can see I've been in full on crochet mode these last couple of weeks. I even managed to knit a chubby little chic. Isn't he sweet!

Meet Ramona, Ana, Mary and Jennifer! Each of these clucky (get it!?) ladies is guarding a chocolate egg. Nom. The pattern I used is from Idea Ivana and it's free - big thanks to Ivana for dreaming up and sharing such a fun project.

I also want to say hello and thank you to Adele of Nice Things By Adele *waves*. A few weeks ago I won this cute little bobble hat egg cosy through a competition on her blog. It arrived swiftly and atop a creme egg. Thanks so much Adele!

Obviously, the chocolate didn't last long but I soon found a new use for the bobble hat. It's a perfect fit for Dave the chick!

I hope all you lovely people have a great Easter break. I plan to watch movies and eat ALL the chocolate.

The past month has been a super busy one that's gone by in the bit of blur. I found time to make these pretty crochet flowers and I'm working on a few more. I'm mulling over what to do with them - bunting, brooches? What do you think?

There's been a bit of scrapbooking with these cute little stickers and pretty floral papers.

I sorted through my fabric stash. Just look at the pretty colours and patterns! One thing I want to try this year is quilting. Hopefully I'll find some time to get started on that soon.

No blog is complete without pics of some recent treats! Clockwise from top left: my chocolate dipped meringues, salted caramel and chocolate icecream at the pub, a delicious pistachio biscuit at Aromi, pancake with caramelised apples and homemade salted caramel. YUM! I knocked up a banoffee pie with the leftover salted caramel too.

I hope your February has been as tasty as mine!

Happy New Year

Woah! Can you believe another year has passed by?! To get things off to a good start I crocheted this adorable lucky cat.

The last month or so I've been a bit obsessed with these paper bows. They're just so satisfying. I made loads to decorate Christmas gifts. You can find the tutorial here.

My second make of 2015 is this cushion cover. It's definitely brighening things up. Hooray for pom poms! I already have plans to make another.

The first bake of year was pecan brownie. I can't think of a better way to start 2015. Here's to another crafty, cake-filled year :-)
