Making cake !! One very important make this week was my husbands 40th birthday cake , as he is a bit of a Tolkien geek I decided I would make him a Hobbit cake . I wanted to feature Bilbo and Smaug so this is the creation I came up with , it took me two days and was a labour of love . My husband absolutely loved it and said it was a shame to eat it !! The boys enjoyed helping them selves to Smaugs treasure and my youngest requested Smaugs head to eat . The cake was enjoyed by family and friends , they enjoyed eating it and I enjoyed making it !!
Making myself cosy and warm on cold snowy days ...... Hot water to drink ( hot water ?? ..detox ! ) in my new Cornish Ware Teapot and a hot water bottle for my feet . So a warm me = a productive me !
OOoooo making a crochet nest in my favourite chair to make Granny Square jumpers for my next batch of Linen Hare's .
In my efforts to continue living frugally and simply I got a bit more organised in the kitchen and knitted myself a new dishcloth from some leftover craft cotton that was languishing at the bottom of my wool basket. Such a quick and easy but very useful make!!
Making progress with sewing projects !!
Making daily bread ( well actually it is often every other day bread ) .
I've been making oven baked beef Chilli with re-fried beans as the kids love this !!
Making a journey by foot on a beautiful day to bring my eldest son home from school after he had fallen down some external stairs at school and sprained his ankle . It was a long slow hobble home but we enjoyed the slow pace by admiring the beauty of our local park covered in snow and bathed in the afternoon sunshine !! I am glad to report he was only out of action for a couple of days and he is back his normal self now .
Me making an early morning trip to the train station to collect my mum who was staying for a spot of child care so me and hubby could go out and celebrate his 40th birthday. I love walking through freshly fallen snow it is up there with kicking big heaps of Autumn leaves !!
So there we have it ' Making 'in all it's different forms . I have lots of makes planned for the next week but I think that is for another post !
Thanks for popping by and I hope you have a lot of makes in your week ahead ( whatever form they take ).
So ta ta for now x.
