This weekend I got a head start by one day, which I really needed. I've tried some new stuff both in baking and crafting. :-) Both are nice ways to spend time indoors. We have had some chilly wind here is Southern Finland few days.
The new thing I've interested in is quilling. I saw some photos of beautiful quilled decorations a week ago. Last Wednesday I happened to find a tool for quilling from sale!
My first work is a snowflake, a pattern taken from here. Thanks :)
Since I used copy paper the outcome wasn't good for window decoration. Instead I made a card out of it.
This certainly needs more practise! What I also intend to practise is making gingerbread dough.
They look fine but could have more spices. :) I love to use those old moulds that I got from my mother.
There was one success in my weekend - muffins! I filled these with (frozen) strawberries and white chocolate crush. Yum! First time I also used baking soda instead of baking powder. And yes - there is a difference in size.
I still have some baking and gift shopping to do, so I have a good reason to go out today to admire the falling snow. :)
Take care and enjoy the season! x
