My Creative Space.

Whoops! Has it been a week already. I would be more repentant, but it would be a lie in all honesty! Would is satisfy you to know that I really have been doing a lot of craft though? In between not updating my blog that is.

Anyway, this weeks creative space is all in the kitchen and in my big bed. Tonight marks my first attempt at my mum's special sausage roll recipe. I was a little nervous to begin with, they're a much loved recipe. But aside from the fact that her recipe make 8 dozen and mine only made 6, they're still looking pretty good. I'll let the boys at work be the judge of that one tomorrow!

And, on the bed front. Since I got my blanks (as featured in last weeks creative space) I've been having my first proper go at embroidery, and I really like it. I think it's really relaxing as far as craft goes, something that you can put your mind to but doesn't need as much attention as knitting or all the noise of running the sewing machine.

Today I went on a trip to Lincraft on my lunch break and picked up one of those nifty embroidery thread boxes with the little plastic spool thingies. I think I may have said it before once or twice, but there's something very satisfying about making things into a rainbow! I will admit that it's a little sad looking still. But I'll fill in the gaps soon enough!

For more creative spaces as always, go and see Kirst!

Yum! I just bought some of those little winder things the other day at clegs as my embroidery basket is getting too embarassing to air in public..

How did your sausage rolls rate on a scale of Joanne to Vicky?
