Well perhaps I built up the Valentine's presents from Mr Stressy, but honestly, I was thrilled! Silicone bun cases - which have already been used to make some mini bread-puddings and a heart-shaped baking dish. I have never used these silicone cases before, never believing they would work. Well let me tell you. I am a convert. They are fantastic - didn't stick, dead easy to clean and a really great colour! I am going shopping tomorrow and can see more of these ending up in my bags before the day is through!
Here is the baking dish filled with an apple and raspberry crumble. Served with custard, this was the perfect pudding for yet another cold and miserable day!
I joined the Posh Valentine Swap this time. I don't normally like swaps and don't often do them - have a major inferiority complex - but blimey am I glad I joined in this one!
A very interesting and delicious book about tea time recipes (expect to see some of those gracing this blog in the near future!), some Charbonnel and Walker pink champagne truffles, cakey cake cases, crazy sheep paper clips, some pink yarn, hand spun by my amazing swap partner (lacy baktus I feel) and this scarf. Would you just look at this scarf? It's crochet. Unbelievable how anyone would spend so long making something so beautiful just for me. I am in awe. Thank-you so very much Saira. So much so that I have yet to eat the chocolates!
I'm going away for a few days now so will be back at the end of the week with news on how much knitting I've managed to get done! Bring it on Locket, bring it on!
