Homemade - my kinda fun!.
Here is the finished blanket. I'm so thrilled with it and its something that i will use (& have done since England seems to think its in the southern hemisphere!) for many years. i made it with 100% wool so that it would be pretty, and warm!. I followed the very clear and excellent tutorial from Signed with an Owl blog. i ended up doing 8 lines of grannys round the edge to finish it off. i've also been baking - 2 batches of my favourite Donna Hay chocolate biscuits - i tried to find the recipe online, but the closest on the Donna Hay website contains milk, which my recipe doesnt. I found my recipe in the Daily Mail magazine many years ago, and it makes a lovely fudgy biscuit with big chunks of choccie in it. today i made ANZAC biccies and finally, i have been playing and learning techniques for art journalling, i have finished one page completely and am thrilled with it as my first attempt. i am interested in doing a calendar journal as well, and did make pages for this month, but i'm not happy with both the pages and the book its in, so am going to rethink. i have been keeping a note of whats been happening, for when i get the pages done. i've decided to do 12 x 12 and into an empty AC craft album i have. i'll show when its done!.
