Sara and Tom have spent the day with us and although their journey did not necessitate a plane or a train, their automobile conked out! Thankfully they were only twenty minutes from our house and so whilst the last of the food was cooking in the oven I went to collect them :-)
Caramel apple pie. I switched up the pastry to a paleo based option consisting of ground almonds, butter and an egg. The pastry formed a really good dough that was easily pressed into the pan. All the recipes were courtesy of the Pioneer Woman, The Holiday Cookbook.
We are currently watching "Planes, Trains and Automobiles", hence the title of this post. Dave and I first watched this film many years ago when it was first released and it is still just as funny :-)
In other news my website and shop is up and running:
Most of my time in between the home schooling I have been up in the loft room sewing:
One Christmas Rosie Rabbit lovingly handmade by me :-)
A knitted hat and poncho with a crochet trim, a blouse and pantaloons made from cotton and a bag that could easily hold a teeny tiny letter from Santa :-)
Felted Baboushka Dolls.
The green and pink one on the left made an epic journey all the way to Idaho!! A lovely friend that I got to know through a you tube channel and Instagram account saw them and ordered one straight away. She then shared its arrival on her social media and someone else has enquired from over the pond :-) Dave has announced that I'm in the export business, if only ;-)
I have missed popping by to catch up with friends but now that we seem to have settled into a better routine I'm hoping to be around more often ... here's looking at you, Ros!
Thankful for family, friendship, food and shelter x
