… where has the last week gone to?
Last week was Christmas (there I’ve said it) baking week.
I made mincemeat, a Christmas pudding (which spent 6 hours simmering on top of the woodburner) and
baked a Christmas cake. I’d fully intended to do my cake back in October, but what with holidaying by the sea and then getting a virus cake baking got delayed. It is going to need some fast track sloshing with Brandy!
Now what is that supposed to be I hear you ask? Well as you know we ballroom dance, and the seating in most village halls are those horrid grey plastic chairs that are cold to sit on, but also make you feel, how can I say this delicately, hot and sticky once you’ve warmed up from dancing. This goes on the seat to take off the chill, and prevent the embarrassment of one’s skirt sticking to one after sitting a while. The granny square pattern can be found here on Attic24′s blog.
