Last night I had another rarity - I was taken out for a night out for a pie n pea supper and prize bingo at Wath Brow. I quite enjoyed myself. I didn't win on the Bingo but came exceedingly close to getting a full house - I only had one number to get (12). I was taken out by Uncle Frank and my cousin Ian. I won two prizes on the tombola, one was a box of wine gums - HK was highly delighted!
This is my 3d Santa. It doesn't look toooo bad. I shall be practising this technique, then I shall be off and away with it. You really need to know your icing consisitencies.
I made a quiche today. With the left over pastry, I rolled it out, cut it and dipped the pieces in cinnamon sugar, then sprinkled an extra bit on. I was a bit inspired with the pinwheels - and I think they tasted better. Sadly they have all been eaten now! It is a fab way to use up pastry cut offs. It has also been suggested to me to use a vanilla glaze. They are only half a step away from danish cinnamon swirls and I have a thing for them. A memory of cinnamon swirls has popped into my head - I used to take a lot of danish pastries into work with me when I worked in a cat b (male) prison. I used to get them from the localish tesco on the way into work. I used to get two packets - one of mixed pastries and one of just cinnamon swirls as myself and one other colleague had a thing for the swirls. Funny how the memory works. That was 8/9 years ago. Lots of memories are on their way now. I shall move on.
My ASJ. I finished it a few weeks ago, but have only had the opportunity to have photos taken today. As you can see, I made it a bit on the big side. It's lovely and comfy to wear. Needs buttons. That seems a common factor on my finished garments!
