Day 24(ish) - Secret Fabric Something Reveal!

Well, now Christmas is over I feel I might be all crafted out.... I may or may not fulfil the task set. But no biggie.

Here is the reveal of the secret fabric something I made for someone's Christmas.

I like it a lot and I think she did too...

Day 22 - Pomaders (redux)

Spicy dust brushed off and ribbons tied.

These have new homes to go to which I am a little upset about as for 3 weeks they have made my flat smell AMAZING.

Day 21 - Making Merry

It was my birthday today. I didn't make anything. I just ate a lot of good food, drank a lot of nice booze and spent time with a lot of lovely people.

See, here I am being tipsy.

Day 20 - Birthday Cake

Over the top oozy, chocolatey, sugary cake for Richie's birthday.

Day 19 - Birthday Secret

Ho hum... this is getting dull isn't it?

Day 18 - Craft Fail

Whoops. I totally failed to make anything today.

Would you like to see a photo of the cat also being lazy?

Sometimes the lure of the intertubes is too much....

Day 17 - Peppermint Creams

Who would think that peppermint essence was so hard to come by?! I 'popped' out to get it and came back over an hour later after trawling round every grocer and supermarket in the vicinity.

But I found it.

By the way, melted chocolate gets reeeeeally hot. Be careful kids.

Day 16 - Mulled Cider

I didn't make much today. Lazy I know.

I did make dinner and mulled cider though. Does that count?

Here's a photo of the cider. It looks nasty in the pan - or shows off my lack of photography skills. It was very tasty though.

Star Anise is amazing.

Day 15 - Fabric Secret Something

More secrets...

I can't show the finished article, but here's an extreme close up of the fabric...

It's Marimekko - found in a charity shop! Really, who gives that away?
