Skull Tea Cosy

My friend Sheryl Gribben suggested I use the 1 Second Everyday to record the progress of my craft projects. The following is my first attempt which I recorded back in June 2014. The project was a Christmas present for my sister (hence 7 months later posting the results!) – a Skull Tea Cosy.

It was an easy first project and only took me 5 days and most of that was spent attempting to unravel the mess I got into when using four yarns! 🙂

Getting in the mood for Christmas…

Baking from last year but just starting to think about what I should be making this year…

Cupcakes and Christmas cakes are always a winner in our house.

These sugar craft glasses were fun to make (and I found a new use for a parsnip) but I don’t think I will rush to make them again this year:

Cake Pops

A while ago I attended a Cake Pops class at 3DCakes and here are the results:

I haven’t made them since the course but I think it is because I associate them with making good use of leftover sponge. I really should give them another go as they are a tasty treat and great because they are small (less guilt)! Watch this space… 🙂

Dog tea cosy

I just couldn’t resist knitting this tea cosy for my mum for her birthday! It was great fun to knit and I now love the possibilities I have of using different colours to make a variety of new characters.

Empire biscuits

My friend Sheryl recently married and as part of the wedding reception, asked if I would bake her Groom’s favourite sweet – Empire Biscuits. Obviously there had to be a romantic twist!
