And while I'm on a roll here as this new posting app is so easy, here's some non eating baking done during the week...can you guess from my drawing what it's for?

Trying to perfect my Gnocchi, third attempt with this one as it was delicious!


Trying out a new posting app on my iPad...Hope it works out! This little box I had put away for some herbs to go in on my kitchen bench, but I have decided its much better with a few pretty fabrics in my sewing room!

I have also been enjoying some time in the kitchen trying out a new Banana cake was so yumm!

I also splurged on a LynetteAnderson designed iPhone case...pretty cute, couldn't resist the one with a chook!

Crochet...a little more crochet and a little stitching!

It seems the crochet bug has bitten hard, with a little crochet bunny for my daughter for Easter and crocheting a chevron cushion. I am very eager to start another crochet cushion!
I have including a photo of the back of my Copenhagen cushion using a few vintage buttons on the back
Still posting and taking photos with my iPad, and haven't worked out how to add text under the photos.
I forgot to mention my little pincushion (in bottom photo) which is the March project with the stitch a long group...such a cute little project and another lovely Anni Downs design.
