I love to get a tin of old buttons carefully salvaged from garments over many years, I am always intrigued by the other bits and pieces, bra fastens, random bits of metal with fabric still attached and so many belt buckles which I thought I would never have the need for. However when I needed a little black belt it took about two minutes to make this with a bit of black velvet ribbon, I am chuffed with my re-cycling self.
A bit more bottom drawing, beautifully done but with a full strand of silk, this always makes me wonder was this embroiderer inexperienced, never put right, or making a statement with bold thread to go with the bright and bold design?
Popped in to the local garden centre and look what we found, Christmas is on it's way.

I found this in a charity shop trawl this morning, what a treasure...
My big darling made a Victoria Sandwich at the weekend all on his own, I lined the tins, and my little darling assisted in the licking of utensils.
I managed to make these Ottolenghi Muffins today all on my own, although they were very complicated with a main part of the muffin and a separate top.
