New year

So for a change i have something less Christmas to show you...I have a new years eve party to go to tonight and it's fancy dress. I am Cruella De vil. I hope by this outfit it is obvious. I also have a wig to match and long sleeve gloves and one of those long cigarette's.

I have also been making a special dessert for the party. They are fruit tart's on real custard's. I have never made them before and they a really easy except for the assembling. It is quite tricky to get them looking very smart but a good dose of icing suger does the trick.

Ra Ra the theme of this apron.....what a flowery, beauty it is. A lady asked me to make it for her daughter whom she never aloud to wear pink...i guess she is getting her own back now eh?

I know that there is an overdose of Xmas scene's in the blog world but i wanted to show you my favourite's. My boy's first ever Xmas play..and the little lady joined in too.
Some really tasteful decoration's from supermarket's. They are really making the effort this year. They look like they have come straight from a Swedish log cabin.

Sometimes it is nice to go the extra mile for a good friend. I wanted to make a thank you card for my dear friend Caroline. But I don't really care for buying card's so i decided to sew one instead.

It isn't exactly complicated but very effective. It is also something nice to keep.
I used chain stitch for the message inside.
