Too, too cold to sit at my sewing machine today. I'd wanted to choose, cut and stitch beautiful fabrics to piece together into Patchy cushions.
I had two ideas for keeping warm. One was much more fun than the other. First I huddled by the fire and stitched the backs on the Round and Round Cushions.
Blue skies and flowers on the jolly red and pink one.
Purple splashy flowers on the green. Once I was finished I thought I'd better give the other keeping warm idea a go.
It was that thing called housework that needs a hoover and a duster. It actually kept me pretty warm for a good hour or more, so it's another way of beating this freezing weather.
Once everything sparkled I felt hungry with a chocolate cake craving.
I tried a new recipe (one that was so easy and the most delicious one I've ever made). For a change I used Cherry Cakes and Ginger Beer. Bruce Bogtrotters Heroic Chocolate Cake hit the spot for all of us. Mr Bun declared it the best cake he'd ever eaten and could eat it all up in one go, the Bun's looked in heaven munching away. Now this all sounds a bit show offy about a cake doesn't it. But it is a seriously good recipe.
I've not done anything I planned to do today, but it's been a really good day so no complaining here.
