I know, I know – from nothing for a while to three posts in three days, but I’ve just decided to roll with it 🙂 Today was the first chance I got to make use of part of my Christmas present from T – this book, which covers all manner of baking, sweet and savoury:
Seeing as I normally bake sweets (and very well, might I add :p), I decided to go for savoury this time round, and see if my amateur baking skills would stretch. I first started out with relatively simple crumpets for brunch. After a couple of casualties which stuck to the pan, I switched frying pan and viola! Behold delicious crumpets, which were eaten drizzled with butter (in my case) and smothered in rasperry jam (in fruit-loving Teo’s case).
Next came lunch, for which I opted to make Scottish Forfar Bridies. Despite slight overstuffing, these turned out to be delicious – from the homemade dough (might aswell go the whole hog, right?) to the meaty stuffing… they were consumed with gusto. So far, so good, new baking book!
I intially intended (as specified in my last post) to write a post about crafty ventures that have been undertaken of late, but after certain events that have taken place over the last couple of days, I find my usual cheery crafty spirit somewhat diminished.
I’d just like to post a little tribute to our recently passed dog, Joey. We found out a few days ago that he had contracted a sort of virus resulting from a parasite in his blood, and despite his generally strong countenance, various trips to the vet for treatment and round-the-clock care, his brave fight came to an end yesterday at around 6:30am. We love and miss you little one, RIP.
“Happiness, oh happiness,
waiting to burst forth from me,
As most of you know by now, I’ll be taking part in Patches street market at the end of the month – Saturday 25th September to be precise, as part of the Notte Bianca celebrations. We’ll be there all day (from 9:30am!) so come and have a look-see should you find yourself wandering aimlessly with nowhere to go 😉
With a little over a week left to go, work is piling up at the rosey household, and there’s still more to be done! Happily, the weekend is finally upon us – one in which I intend on finishing (and starting, but shh! don’t tell anyone!) a good number of projects. The boy is hard at work on his MA dissertation, so we’ll both be heads down working at our respective babies!
You can see some of the things I’ll be selling on Patches’ website, here specifically: http://www.patchesmarket.com/?p=859
Hope to see your shining faces on the 25th! 🙂
Work is well underway for the September edition of Patches Special Market! Despite working during the week, weekends and evenings are generally my sweet crafting haven, and I try to cram as many things into the time I have as possible! Today I woke up inordinately early in the hopes of ploughing through a very ambitious ‘To Do List’. Luckily, willpower makes all the difference in such situations and luckily again, it has never been something in short supply in Sasseh World 🙂
So here I bring you, (although I can’t give away too much – I’m big on the element of surprise!) my workspace today, with a few highlights into what I’ve been up to! Hey, it’s also an excuse to show off the work of my brand new SLR camera… everything looks so much tastier through it’s lens!
