Well firstly I want to say a big thank you to all you lovely kind people that left well wishes on my blog! I am new to blogging and sometimes get overwhelmed at how wonderful, inspiring, kind, positive (I could go on here...) everyone is. I love the fact that you can be yourself and your blog just evolves into whatever you want it to be, and people take you or leave you as you are - it's just such a wonderful warm and nurturing place...I am so glad I found you all here in blogland wonderland!
So I am feeling better, but haven't been very productive just yet, apart from a tad of baking, reading and crocheting. Thank you everyone who has suggested fabric shops to me, I have to confess I have spent a lot of my time deciding what fabric to buy for my quilts. It seems I am going to need to buy from a few different shops and it's gonna be $$.
The only thing I have been up to is finishing off my first ever little crochet blanket for my daughters doll. I just need to figure out how to do a border around it. Hopefully tomorrow I can reveal how it went.
Once again thank you all you lovely ladies that come and spend time with me on my blog, it's much appreciated and very inspiring getting to share my daily adventures with you.
And I leave you tonight with a request I had for the Afgans recipe so here you go, it's from the well and truly trusted iconic Kiwi Edmonds Cookery Book
200g butter, softened
½ cup caster sugar
1 ¼ cups standard plain flour
¼ cup cocoa
2 cups cornflakes
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Sift flour and cocoa. Stir into creamed mixture. Fold in cornflakes. Spoon mounds of mixture onto a greased oven tray, gently pressing together. Bake at 180°C for 15 minutes or until set. When cold ice with chocolate icing and decorate with a walnut if wished.
PS These freeze really really well
