Cake International

I love going out and finding inspirational events and places. Today was the cake international fair at the excel center in London. It was a fantastically fun event crammed with people though which made it hard to get to some stands. As I am doing this post from the mobile I have only attached a few images of the most impressive images so you get a feel for it , sorry if the images end up the wrong way round. More images and details when I get to a PC.

A weekend of creating

 These are the newest edition to my apron collection, which will go on-line soon. (I know I keep saying it but they will!)

OK so not the most amazing picture, it was taken very quickly after a long day of making things. I have a habit of getting very obsessed with making them look beautiful that I forget to rest for a while, hence the blurry image.

One of them is not available as it was given to one of my dear friends as a birthday gift. 

I have, thanks to another amazing friend, been creating a few of the angry birds in felt. He currently has me working on an exploding bird, not entirely sure how possible this is but my brother and I are going to give it a damn good go! This is one of the better attempts at a pig which I achieved.

 Whilst felting I also managed to create these little ones, I don't quite know how my brain created them, but I let my fingers do the talking and went with them.

I also took a stab at creating something I saw on Rachel Khoo's Little Paris Kitchen a few weeks ago, as a first attempt it didn't come out too bad but you have to like goat's cheese to love this. It is a Pistachio, Goats Cheese and Prune cake. I know it sounds strange, and it is, but I like it as a light  lunch, especially when warm.

That is all for now my lovelies.

Through the Looking Glass

Afternoon All!

So a large portion of my time seems to be addicted to my Google reader looking at all the different craft things that people create and I a completely addicted. After a while though you tend to get an idea for which is actually possible to make and what some lovely person with a lot of time and patients and skill has created. 

For those people like me who purely like creating when it fits in with their spare time and when it is actually doable and doesn't fall apart at the first moment you use it, I am going to post weekly about a few of my favourite things (not meant to sound like a Sound of Music quote but still)

I had to show you all this because it is legendary! The patients and commitment to the TARDIS is amazing!

Along the Geek lines, which is actually ingrained in my soul now, here are some amazingly funny little things from Be Different ... Act Normal

These are from Make It Love It and they are amazing, but am I the only one that looks at these and thinks that there is no way those sweets would last very long if that was my pin cushion!
