So Christmas is over and the presents are given. Now I can show you some of the making I did previously. I made hampers for the couples in my family with little knick-knacks and some yummy home cooking. There's nothing like home cooking. I baked star shortbread drizzled with white chocolate, mega chocolate chip biscuits and some lemon butter. I didn't taste the lemon butter but I hear it's good. The recipe I had made just one cup which was barely enough to fill each jar so I didn't dare lower the level. I do however like how the labels turned out. Just plain yellow paper which I used a corner punch on and scrawled the words with pen and dipping ink give it a bit of an antique look. Cute. Quite happy with the way it's all turned out.
I haven't been creating much lately other than that. I think I've been distracted with Christmas and the Twilight books. ^^ I did however teach my sister-in-law how to crochet. I taught her a few basics last time she was up and at our Christmas gathering I gave her a crochet book and taught her how to read the instructions and helped guide her as she crocheted a square. She did quite well too. I've been doing some squares myself today but my camera batteries are playing up so I can't show you. They're made with bright acrylic colours with my funky new crochet hook I bought to show by example while teaching. Unfortunately I think I'm spoiled against acrylic. It's just no where near as nice to use as the other wool I have. Oh well.
Happy New Year to you all too! Hope 2010 is a wonderful one for you and that you can learn new things and have fun adventures!
