Snowflake Cookies

My mother gave me an early Christmas present, she knows I like to do a lot of baking for Christmas. Love the packaging and the cookie cutter!

There was a lot of butter in this recipe, plus one egg and whatever was in the supplied mixture.

I had imagined they would turn out to be shortbread but they were actually very similar to cookies made with a biscuit press that I remember as a child.

Thanks Mum!

Faux Suede Platypus

This is the Faux Suede Platypus that fits on a swatch, my project for December 17. He was designed a while back with the others in my Cut & Sew animals that fit on a swatch collection. This time I stitched him by machine and the only slightly tricky thing was turning his feet through.

Festive Nutcracker

Over the last two days I have been working on a design for the Nutcracker contest at Spoonflower. This design co-ordinates with my Scandinavian style cut and sew designs. Now just to decide on which colourway to enter.

Bobby Bunny

This little project is another mini animal on a swatch I designed a few months back. As with Pumpkin Cat the arms and legs would have been difficult to turn through so Bobby Bunny is stitched with blanket stitch. Bobby Bunny is printed on the faux suede so fraying is not really a problem.
