More of the Same

I am hoping I will be able to get my webbed feet back into my shoes after the downpour here over the last couple of days. I braved the elements to get to Yoga yesterday so I think I am entitled to curl up at home today. I took some bikkies I had made from Christine's yummy recipe. They were a hit.
Mine are a little paler as I didn't have any essence and I subsituted a teaspoon of dissoloved coffee which was fine but I really want to try it with the chikory and coffee essence as I am sure it will maker them nicer.
I am now just doing the emboidery on "pink faerie bear (that's why she has thread across her face)
I assembled her in her top this morning and I should have sprayed and pressed before taking the photo.
Little "red faerie bear" now has a ladybird on her toes....
A little bit of stitching on ladybirds antenae and then it is backing fabric, wadding and quilting for both of them. I have both lots of binding all set to go.
As they say "Thats was all she wrote"
I am off to throw some more wet washing into the dryer. Somehow that just doesn't conjure up the image of a Domestic Goddess does it....
Wherever you are be kind to yourself.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. the faerie bear is lovely Michelle. Yes I think we've all been using our dryer's a bit lately. Though we had a reprive on Saturday and I managed to wash sheets of two beds and the clothes from the week on the line, yay I was happy with that.

  8. The bears are looking cuter the more you work on them. Am definitely sick of the rain. Why does it always pour at 3.00pm just when I have to pick Jake up? I like your header. Hugs....
