Day 3 of my two week break is almost over and I am having a ball. It is so nice to forget about the stresses of work and actually take each day as it comes. I spent a little time yesterday morning strolling around the garden and picked myself a bunch of flowers.
After my stroll I decided to do some baking - I decided upon Cinnamon Scrolls. I made the dough
And left it to double in size
Whilst I made the cinnamon butter for the filling
And prepared the board ready for kneading
Kneading is wonderful stress therapy - The poor thing was very elasticated by the end of it's workout
And in no time they were ready to go into the oven
They baked beautifully
And were served up with cream cheese icing - Yum ! Have you had a go at Cinnamon Scrolls before? I used this recipe.
The afternoon was spent making some shabby lavender sachets from one of my favourite fabrics
And also some Cabbages & Roses versions
Today hubs and I enjoyed a lunch at our local hotel with a nice glass of red. Before we went I cut up my $1 recycled tank top.
I cut a rectangle from the front and back of the top and then cut another matching size to go with each from some fat quarters
Put them together with right sides matching, stitched all the way around and left a little gap for turning. Pressed with a hot iron and then top stitched all the way around closing the gap as you go and Voila !
2 Polishing cloths - These are perfect for drying up glassware, polishing taps, glass, mirrors etc !!
They look gorgeous rolled up
And even better tied up with some organza ribbon. I will make some little labels for these and then they will go in my present box for gift giving later in the year.
Next on my list is an easy little project using this..... Any ideas about their destiny?
Hope you are having a wonderful hump day.
