All I can say is YUM! These were really easy to make and while they did brake my mixer (I seem to have a habit of that!), they were very quick too! I got the receipe on Design Sponge at http://www.designspongeonline.com/2008/12/in-the-kitchen-with-caroline-swifts-holiday-treats.html. And a friend of mine gave me the cutters a number of years ago.

My flatmate really likes cord (remember the bean bag?) and I made her this scarf for Christmas as she'll be in the Northern Hemisphere and having a proper cold fuelled Christmas. I put a fleecy knit fabric into the centre and I cut square in the fabric so that it would have a patch work effect with the cord lines running the opposite way to the squares above and below it. Feels really soft and oh so warm!

I adapted a paper kit doll (it was female) into a male cowboy for a friend's birthday in a few days time. I hope he likes it. The cowboy was originally wearing a miniskirt and had plaits - they got converted into shorts and the extra hair became a moustache!
My mother asked for an apron when I was last home a few months ago. I finally got around to making one. I quite like it, though its not in the colours I would have chosen if I was making it for myself. And as I'm living in a different country I hope my aesthetic hasn't changed too much and she actually likes it. Fingers crossed!
