Don’t know what to call this post :)

This week I’ve not known if I’m coming or going. Its difficult trying to hold down a job, run a haberdashery, be a mum, clean the house, do the ironing and cooking and trying to fit some quality family time in. I don’t think I’m doing a bad job at it but god I’m starting to feel tired now. My days start at 6am and the first time I get a bit of a breather is about 8pm by that time I’m shattered so when I sit down with nothing else to do I feel my eyes drooping 😦 So this week I took advantage of the football being on and made a syrup sponge cake using my old recipe on here but substituted the normal self-raising flour for gluten-free self-raising flour.   It turned out quite well and if anyone can’t find my recipe on here please message me and I’ll send it to you.2014-06-19 20.43.32

It was nice and calming to bake again. Before the days of Simply Needlecraft I had time to bake and cook and always had something homemade to have for tea and dessert. Now I’ve decided I need to make more time in the kitchen…..if thats possible.   This week it’s also been Rowleys 2nd birthday……I thought he might have calmed down a bit by now but sadly he’s still nuts and doesn’t show any sign of growing up as yet, but we love him and his over the top personality. 2012-10-28 17.06.10


Craft wise this week, finished projects are Baby door pillows with minky fleece   Redwork Embroidery – my favourite. The simple designs are so elegant.   Key rings using scraps   Frayed flowers using scraps.   2014-06-18 09.08.44
