Chocolate and Raspberry Roulade Recipe

Occasionally on this here blog, I like to share a recipe or two. This one is too good not to share!

Trust me, everything went wrong with this because I cannot read recipes (I get slightly dyslexic when reading recipes) but it still turned out delish!

Go on, if I can do it, you definitely can!

Quilted Cushion Cover

I got lots of sewing done this week! It will take a few blog posts to get through it all. 


Here's my first completed project. I was sorting out some fabric and found an old project I started years ago.

All the quilting had been done, it just needed to be sewn together.
To do the quilting, you need one piece of fabric for the front, a piece of wadding the same size and then some backing. Pin together and then sew. Then repeat for the other side of the cushion.

I sewed it right sides together, leaving a gap and then turned it the right way out. Then, I stuffed it with wadding scraps and sewed the hole up.

It's an easy way to brighten up your room!

I'm still here!


I thought I'd just check in and say I am still here!

I had a busy summer but I am back now.

My busy summer included a bit of this:

A gallop along the beach is always fun.


There's a  giveaway coming soon (as soon as I can get organised!).

I will also have some projects to show you (when I finish them!).

There might possibly also be a cake decorating tutorial, too, I just have to make the cake first!

At the moment I have a lot of work, so my only crafting opportunity is Saturdays.

I am hoping to finish something, anything (!) this Saturday, so watch this space!

Right now, I'm working on:

A cute little bag
An ever cuter potholder
An embroidered canvas
A winter snow scene painting
A poppy watercolour

In my head, I have:

A vintage quilt
A duvet cover
Oven gloves
A skirt made from some shorts
A summer dress or two
Refashioning my bridesmaids dress

I haven't quite run out of ideas, yet!

Anyway, I thought I'd just pop in to say hi and make sure that you didn't think I had abandoned my little blog.


See you soon!
