All in two days work :)

Well it's been a productive couple of  days, although in all fairness it's only 09.40 of day two lol. At the top of the list is baking, baking, baking one of my favourite pastimes. In the top left corner are the Condensed Milk Chocolate Chip cookies i was making around seven this morning, they are my favourite choc chip cookie so far. Next to them is Anzac Biscuits, based on an old recipe for Scottish Oatcakes both of these recipes are taken from 

This book which has been a source of inspiration.The flapjack is a modified recipe i found online to which i added some ginger yesterday, not sure what i think yet but time will tell.

So then there is Otis, this is a pattern i have from online, somewhere. I have many owl patterns because i love owls. I haven't touched my felt in months but yesterday felt the urge and so here he is. I cut out the pieces before i picked Brett up from nursery and in the afternoon when i got too hot and bothered i put him together :)

This is my new t-shirt which i picked up for £3 from Adsa, a couple of days earlier i had bought some transfer paper and so the experiment began. The butterfly got printed onto the transfer paper, the butterfly is one of my drawings. The one thing i didn't anticipate was the edge that i left showing and in my haste i didn't cut it exceptionally neatly. So in order to disguise the edge last night i sat and sewed some alternating beads round it and voila! Mind this morning i was a bit worried when my t-shirt seemed to have adopted a greasy looking hand print which I'm guessing wasn't grease as it came off but i have no idea where it came from. I will definitely be trying this again with other things. How well the transfer will last i don't know but I'll keep you posted. Phew now i must go prepare dinner. Listening to some early 80's tunes. So cool :)
