Same mincemeat as before, but this time different wrapping!! Two presents in one, vintage doily to decorate the lid! 
I am off work all next week and can't wait. I am hoping to fill it with baking, crafting and shopping for christmas presents! I started some of the crafting today - below is how far I got!

Buzzing bee

This is one of my latest creations, a present for a friends birthday, I am really enjoying using felt at the moment and need to restock my supplies!

I am currently sat on the sofa with a blanket and a nasty cold, no felt shopping for me!! If anyone wants to send ice cream to soothe a sore throat that would be lovely!

I made these last weekend for a friends birthday, I love how different the little cupcake surrounding makes!

I am getting a bit excited for christmas and am looking for some felt decorations to make - or any decorations really! I have done lots of baking so far but no crafting!!

Home made mincemeat

My first attempt at making mincemeat. I think perhaps the decoration of the jar went better than the mincemeat! I didn't quite have enough apples but hopefully it will still be lovely!

I have been trying lots of different christmas recipes , the first few were with shop bought mincemeat which inspired me to make my own!

Mincemeat cranberry and pistachio whirls - they were delicious and I froze half the batch before cooking it so there are even more to come!
