Oh gosh, where have I been? Sorry to say I've been rather busy of late and my crafting has suffered. Never fear, my stitchy bug has returned home and I'm back putting needle into thread!
I've been trying to finish up Gingerbread Cottage this week. As it's soon going to be April, I think it's about time I finished this wintry design up. Here's my progress to date . . .
I don't know what I'm going to do with this design once I've finished all the stitching. At the moment, I'm just concentrating on getting it done. Any ideas would be gladly appreciated :)
I'm so close to a finish though. One more tiny area of stitching to do and then I can reveal my latest happy dance. I know exactly what I'm going to be doing with this one :) Stay tuned for more!
And in other news, I made bread! I've never made bread from scratch before and thought it was high time I gave it a go. After hours of kneading and resting and yet more kneading and resting, this was my result . . .
It turned out brilliantly - the yummiest, softest loaf of wholemeal bread I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy. Well, that might be a slight exaggeration, but it did turn out good. I was pretty sceptical that my first attempt would be anything like real bread, but this was darn tasty. I've stocked up my freezer for awhile too :) Do you have any tips for a novice baker like me? I'd love to hear some tricks of the trade.
I hope to go back to regular posting soon, I have missed blogging these past couple of weeks. I can't wait to read about what you've all been up to.
