Full breakfast
i pod
Bullet Bill
Mario mushroom

Baked beans

When I have the confidence, I shall try some fruit!!! lol

Tea and Cake

I've just finished these slices of Battenberg cake for my Folksy shop. I wasn't too sure about the shades at first but now they're finished, I'm happy with them.
Just makes me want to snuggle under the throw on the sofa with a hot cup of tea and cake! Although, I've been eating too much comfort food of late and have put back on the weight I'd lost for the wedding! :(
Two weeks left in work now before the holidays (yipee). The Christmas tree is up, presents bought, just wrapping left! We're having lunch with my family this year, and there will be 8 of us, so am looking forward to a good old family day like they used to be.

Christmas Craft Food

Since the last craft fayre, I've been making felt food like crazy! I had another fayre on Saturday (5th) which was also a poor turn out, but I managed to make a few sales! All felt food!

I've been focusing mainly on biscuits ( as you can see) but want to make more savories now, especially as play food. Maybe a few young children in the family will be getting play food off Father Christmas this year!

I'm a lot more relaxed now that I'm done sewing before Christmas, although now I can't wait to have time to experiment with new designs. Since that was my last craft fayre before Christmas, I've listed the biscuits online in my Etsy and Folksy shops (links on this page). I want to list all the stockings and dolls too, but will have to wait until I find some daylight to photograph them!

Oh nearly forgot to say, I had my first 3 sales from my Etsy shop last weekend and sold 3 Matryoshka dolls to a lady from Poland. I was so delighted, I hope she likes them.
