Fabric and Food on a friday night ....

Made myself a bottle of

homemade 

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!!!

Mmmmm-mm!  

they were yummy!

(and the essence was perfect!)


Lots of sox nearly done,

and 

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)
and  
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!!)

Hugs,

The Vanilla Cuppy-cakes look so beautiful I can almost smell their yummy fragrance through the screen! Do you think you could give the recipe sometime? I'm a baker I love to bake and these look scrumptious! The stocking fabrics you chose are beautiful and festive I know they will be even more gorgeous upon completion! Hugs, Jennifer xoxoxoxo

Hello Jen,

So that was the lovely smell, homemade vanilla essence I think I would be sniffing that all the time. I use vanilla essence in my oil burner to perfume the room.
I must say those Hunny Bums are stunning I bet they are selling like hot buns.
Have a fantastic Sunday.
