We woke up this morning to big fat white flakes falling past the window. It was snowing ! Some folk get excited about snow, me? I don't really care either way. It looks pretty but it's a nightmare when your kids drive out in it ;)
Anyway, due to the nasty weather we decided it was a 'staying in' day. My translation of that is crafting and baking day :)
In no particular order this is what I have done today:
Made Honeycomb (Cinder Toffee).
Found a recipe on my favourite ALL RECIPES site, it turned out very well, although the greaseproof paper was a pain to remove, next time I shall try parchment which is a little thicker.
I doubled the recipe and ended up making a huge pizza tray full. Shona wanted to keep it all, greedy piglet.
But I broke it up and gave a lot of it away :)
I also made some LEMONADE QUENCHER cookies. When following this recipe it tells you to use an ice-cream scoop of mix, which I thought was an awful lot..... it was, it spread everywhere so I ended up with some really uneven cookies. They certainly do not look like the ones I on the site I got the recipe from, but they taste amazing.
Inbetween baking sessions I got my tattoo extended. Marie, Shona's girlfriend, does them for me, she is well known for her doodle arty flowers, and this is what she is tattooing onto my thigh. I usually have two or three at a time, but this session I bled out, so only one was coloured in. You can check out her new blog that includes tattooing and her many other crafts HERE.
The other craft I have managed to squeeze in today has been the Crochet Vest. I am just starting to shape the armholes on the front now, shouldn't be too long before this one is finished :)
I do love Snowy Sundays.
