Christmas Pudding Biscuits.

This past weekend I participated in my first ever “Cookie Swap”. It turns out that we aren’t the only people who have never participated in a cookie swap, as people had to be herded away from the cookie tables as they tried to eat all the cookies instead of taking them home. Anyhow, for my […]

Popcorn and Cranberry Garland

Last year we didn’t really embrace the holiday period as our belongings didn’t arrive until the 23rd, and we could only feel so much festiveness while living in a rented apartment. Sad times. Poor show. And this year? Well I have been slacking.┬áSlacking in that I have done very little thus far to prepare. Hardly […]

The post-Christmas post

I don’t know about you, but it had been a hectic time this year. It has been good to see people though, and I have had some splendiferously crafty presents, which has been fabulous! My friend put me together this apron kit: I love how she also included this tag to add to it: Haha! […]

I got distracted….

I know I said I would work on a bit of a sewing project on Saturday… but the post arrived and with it some fabric for a cross stitch project that I had planned to make from this month’s edition of CrossStitcher. With it estimated to take 65 hours to stitch…. I thought I had […]

The quick share…..

Guess what I’m making?

Grandma K’s Lemon Cheese

Whether you call it Lemon Cheese or Lemon Curd I think really boils down to preference. I usually refer to that stuff you buy in the supermarket as Lemon Curd, the homemade high quality stuff is Lemon Cheese, in my family anyway, and I love it! I spent the morning at work, not very exciting. […]
