Bottoms Up!

I'm back!

It's been a manic couple of months here, doll making and just doing everyday life stuff.

But, that means you've got a super variety of things to read through here!

First off are the dolls. I've had quite a few orders, so here's the ones that are finished and now living with their new owners.

Aren't they sweet?!
As always, let me know if you'd like to order one. 

Another big(gish?) thing that's happened is I've finally got my new header sorted out! A huge thank you to Kylie George (from Kylie George Designs - I'd post a link but I can't bloody find it?) for turning my sketch into the fabulousness you see at the top of the page. Wooo!

I've discovered how to make super easy apple pies. Just what you need for the coming winter!
Grab a sheet of puff pastry, cut it into quarters, whack a dollop of stewed apples (or canned pie apple) in the middle, and fold 'er up. Egg-wash and bake at a high-ish temp until golden. You can freeze them easily, make a whole heap and pop 'em into a container without cooking them (with baking paper between so they don't stick to each other) and they're ready to go.

Not the prettiest, but they're damn tasty!

I've done a whole lot of little things, like deciding to wash the kitchen window fly-screen. This of course turned into painting the windowsill and making a little curtain-y thing, but it makes a huge difference! I almost enjoy washing dishes now. Almost...

Yeah, I'm all about mixing up instagrammed and non-instagrammed pics. 
I never said I was consistent...

I've made some funky scarves from things that were hanging around...

...had my first decent sewing failure...

It was meant to be an oven glove...

...and today, I baked my most successful batch of cookies ever! 

Yeah, I know it's unbelievable considering how awesome I am, but I absolutely SUCK at baking. I have NEVER had a whole batch of cookies come out of the oven un-burned. But today - not even one who's 'lightly golden' was more 'eighty year old sun-worshiper'. This is cause for celebration! Bottoms up!

For some reason the picture's around the wrong way and it
 won't let me change it. But how cute are they?!

On that wonderfully positive note, I'm gonna sign off now. Hopefully I'll be back again quick-smart. Unless I find another good book, that is!

Hope y'all are doing smashingly!

Love on ya's,

mama sof xx
