Thursday's Photos....

I spent Wednesday morning on the frame, 3 hours later came off with a bad back, frozen shoulder and a flimsy finished :) it's got its binding on and i'm hand stitching the back, fingers crossed it might be finished ready for me to hang it on the wall, looks a bit wobbly with the binding on, why is it my tops never look square once the bindings go on ??? any ideas anyone???
my quilting was a bit rushed so not great curves and I used cheap polyester batting which I think it making it look a bit puffy, going to sacrifice the cotton/wool hobbs on the wreath.

The wreath one will be on the frame for Monday :O-) so i'll be hand sewing tuesday or wednesday.

As a side thing, I watched Jamie Olivers Christmas with bells on yesterday, bought some extra ingredients and tonight we had

For the epic hot chocolate mix

  • 2 tablespoons Horlicks
  • 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 3 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 4 tablespoons quality organic cocoa
  • 100g quality dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids), finely grated
  • a pinch of ground cinnamon
  • a pinch of sea salt

1. Pour the milk into a large pan, and bring almost to the boil over a medium heat.

2. Meanwhile, add all the chocolate mix ingredients to a large jar and give it a good shake to combine. You need around 10 heaped tablespoons of the chocolate mix for this amount of milk.
  Simply spoon the chocolate mix into the hot milk, give it a good whisk and leave to bubble away for a few minutes before serving. You're looking for that gorgeous, thick, almost claggy, knockout texture.

It is truly delish and the pictures do not do it justice, so I made up another batch and a small jar for my brother, going to find a nice label for his... definitely one for everyone to try.

Tomorrow its the Jerk Ham and the kids sneaked a pic of me making their sarnie for tea.

I got caught up with my photos and here's the new additions to my fabric stash 

Can't you just eat the Watermelon's :)

These are a bit of a step from my usual stash but I'm trying to move out of my box a bit

These ones are for backings and for my country style quilt that I'm going to start in the New Year
Have a Fantastic Friday xxx
