What am I going!

Ok so that wasn't a question but more a case of me feeling very lost. I can no longer assess my blog via my laptop as chrom and it are not playing nice. Even this way, via my tablet, I am unsure how well it is working.

It's been a while and life has been flying by. Instead of playing catch up I am simply try and pop on at least once a week . I have a few vintage magazine's, some crafts, cooking and other homemaker bits to share. So here's to finding time in my day for me and my blog.

Homemade White Bread

  For Christmas I was given a new mixer, so I treated myself to a new book.
The children and I really enjoyed this show and I have cooked a few bit from there website. 

I would have liked to do more with this post but as I was cutting this lovely fresh bread the knife jumped and sliced through my finger. So just these photos.


I am fine and the bread was great.
Next on my list of things to learn, how to slice home made bread safely.

Hope your cooking is yummy and safe.

Churros

For a short week I had the use of a deep fryer. There were so many thinks I wanted to cook but this was the most popular with my family. Churros are like a long form of doughnut covered in cinnamon sugar and are best eaten once cooled but while still crisp.


You can see to the side I used my cookie press to make mine.


I was helped out by my children. It was very easy to make, lovely to eat and smelled great.

I got the idea to make these from a YouTube channel a friend of ours does the voice over for.

If you watch it I hope you enjoy it as much was we did.

Me and my New Tablet

Just a short post to pop on and say Hi, I'm a live.  Christmas and the New Year have been a bit full on at our place.  Atomic Dad gave me a new toy a samsung tablet I am still learning to use it but it's lots of fun. I have a new dress and a few other new toy I am looking forward to sharing.

I hope you have all had hey great christmas and a happy new year post more soon.

Red and Yellow Pillows

Atomic Dad was given is  double hamone sideock for Chthe other. mas but he needed some pillows. So I've made him a pair to match the hammock. I've used an inexpensive cotton in plain red and yellow and a zip in the back.


I cut 2 1/2 inch strips and stiched them together to match the stripy fabric of the hammock. 


And here they are outside with the hammock.



a simple sewing task done in no time.
This post was done via my new tablet so I am sorry for any dramas as I am still learning to use it.

Etsy Shop

It's not much yet but I've opened an Etsy shop.


As yet it only has one item for sale but others will slowly make there way up.
It also lacks colour and photos. I don't mind, it's simply a good place to start as an outlet for my many sewing projects that don't have homes yet.

Once I've done it up a bit more I will link it to my blog.
Thank you for looking and your support.
