Fabric and Food on a friday night ....

Made myself a bottle of


Vanilla Essence 

a few weeks ago..

it has been fermenting nicely, till tonight,  I used it for the first time..

Vanilla Cuppy-cakes were on the menu
but I didn't have any patty pans left so I used muffin papers...

They worked out fine!!
Topped with yummy vanilla buttercream
and edible glitter!!!


they were yummy!

(and the essence was perfect!)

Lots of sox nearly done,


this is only half of what I have been working on in the last week or so!!

(busy, busy, busy!!)

And I wanted to show you my gorgeous Robyn Pandolph fabrics that I got last week,

Scarborough Fair on top (Pastels)
Boxwood House on the bottom (deeper colours)

Aren't they just beautiful :)!

(and if you would like the recipe for the vanilla essence let me know!!)

Kate Spain 'Flurry' Sox ...

 I really love this 'Flurry'  range of fabrics by Kate Spain
for Moda

The are just stunning in person!

and as with all Kate's fabric they have such a beautiful soft hand..

These Jingle Sox are all in stock and for sale in my Etsy shop!

Aren't they stunning!!

Also, this Be Merry Jingle Sack is on it's way to a lovely customer :)!

This is the last one I will get out of this fabric, 
such a shame it is discontinued!!

my gorgeous grandbugs..

Just a few recent photos I took of my beautiful grandchildren....

The Bug

The Hunny Bunny is going through a bit of a 'don't take my photo' stage..  
...have to snap them when I can!!
(1 year old)

The princess loves having her photo taken!
(6 months old)
