I did end up making some Anzac biscuits, which G ended up taking to work with him the next day. They are fun to make and only take a few minutes. I love adding the bi-carb soda to the butter and golden syrup and watching it go all light and frothy.
Also finished putting together the package for my sister with the little pot holder and a little kit for her to make her own duck. I wonder if she'll end up making it or not. I'm guessing not, but we'll see. There's not too much else for her to do in her spare time up there.
Inside the little duck kit - all the pieces cut out for a cream and pink ducky (named Esmay), some stuffing and some thread and ribbon to finish her off.
It was my cousin's birthday a few days ago and I thought I'd make her a pot holder and oven mitt set.. so I made this pot holder, but I don't think this is the one for her. I'd like to make one with more natural/muted colours for her - so that's the next project. I do love the little apples trim on this one though.
I announced my resignation from work on Friday and after a bit of celebrating that night I needed a quiet Saturday and Sunday. Had a nice dinner on Saturday night with G's cousin and his wife (who are expecting their first baby in a couple of months and have ordered another little duck for the baby) and then spent this afternoon making another duck for G's brother. This duck is named Albert and I borrowed the idea of a scarf for him instead of a bow around his neck from the beautiful little birds blog.
Edward (the duck) has gone to his new home now, still with his wonky little head. We decided that was character building.
