Love is in the air

I couldn't resist this gorgeous little love stamp cross stitch from The frosted pumpkin stitchery so adorable. 
I made it in to a mini quilt with extra wadding so it would stand up like a picture. I was after quick fix cuteness to brighten up the mantle, so I was too impatient didn't want to wait for a frame.
I also took down my Christmas sampler (it needs a proper frame and it isn't Christmas any more). It left a really blank space on the wall, so again after a quick fix I stitched up some hearts with some pink and red scraps and made a little decoration for the wall, the picture is pants but it really does brighten that wall up nicely.
I can't believe we're at the end of february already…yay for march and the clocks going forward :-)

mmm fudge

I've been having a go at making fudge, with surprisingly good results, this batch was vanilla fudge with a chocolate and peanut topping, it was yummy.
Just in case you want to have a go…your family will love you forever lol)
This is the recipe.
Back soon,

I know it's only just February but….

...the spring colours are coming out of the stash. 
I'm all ready thinking of Easter, my Birthday is on Good Friday this year, which makes it even more exciting. 
I have completely indulged myself and made a mini quilt, they are just so quick and satisfying, I'm not sure I want to commit to any thing bigger at the moment so I am pleasing myself and loving it. Just look at that tiny bunny so so cute, makes me smile very time.
I hope you have something that makes you smile too…it's the little things you know :-)
