1  Re: Thing-A-Day February 2018 Craftalong in Craftalongs by edelC on: February 18, 2018 10:26:27 AM
I made these today-all for me, they are for my capricious appetite post chemo on Monday. Chemo gives you a nasty taste in your mouth, so these are good to sweeten your mouth and mask the taste. But tbh, you don't need an excuse they are great.

Melt some really good chocolate (no cheaping out here, you're worth it). Put teaspoons of melted chocolate on baking parchment and add things you like. I love sweet+salt. So I add dried cranberries and salted nuts (normally cashews, but I was out so I used peanuts, bashed a bit). And I like salt so i crumbled some sea salt flakes on top. Leave to cool. Store for a week or so in a ziplock bag in the fridge- guard jealously. And enjoy

I love that embroidery acadian-driftwood

I made a thing, quick and dirty, but I made it. A soft cap to wear in bed, stop my ears freezing off. It's from a child's teeshirt

Plus as a wonderful extra she sent a bag of popcorn jellybelly beans, my facvourite. And a packet of flamingo cake sprinkles!! they are brilliant

thank you so much Anna, and I am so sorry for the delay in posting this

woohoo look at me with fast internet back. I have been going crazy with speeds of, wait for it...0.5meg. Arrgh, but the Mr internet fixer arrived today. 44meg baby

And I baked something, it was simple, but it is the closest thing I have gotten to a craft in weeks. So here you go (delicious, easy, no equipment needed)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Head Mistress challenge Dec

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: chocolate orange shortbread
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: from Jamie Olivers 15 minute meals. I am currently treating myself with lots of carbs, chip butties, crisp butties, bread of all description. But I was craving something home baked, so this was fast and easy. From this recipe. https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/chocolate-recipes/chocolate-orange-shortbread/ I didn't bother melting chocolate chips separately, I just put them on top when the shortbread came out of the oven and smooshed them a bit when they melted. There are both dark and light chips on here.

I received this great birthday cake from FiberAlchemist. It is already on the tree. So cute

My tree is all it's awesomeness. It's a little table top one. With my flamingo advent wreath in the foreground.

And I got these incredible HP tree lights, all of the bottles are glass, with glitter or sequins and potions labels. The LEDs are inserted through the corks. They were a steal at 8 battery operated and guess who forgot to turn them off before bed last light.

And in the same post, I got another personal swap-lucky me!

From Suueede

This very clever bag, it is made out of a man's suit jacket, it is really strong and I love that the buttons etc are still on there, offset to make it look even better. The lining is really pretty too

She sent me a ton of flamingo goodies, a lollipop, pen, ruler, eraser, bag charm and they are all so cute. They will be coming into work with me to brighten up my office. There are some chocolates in this picture that may or may not exist any more.

She spoiled me with some pampering stuff, fluffy socks, moisturiser and lip balm.

and the piece de resistance, some harry potter decorations for my tree. I struggled to get a good picture of these, so suueede they deserve their own thread. There is a set of glass slides that have scenes from the movies, they are double sided and each one has linked images.
 And also a set of tiny HP books to hang on the tree, these have real pages that turn!!

Thank  you so much honey,

I have been lucky enough to do a personal swap with the crafting machine that is  CraftyLittleMonkey.

She sent me these really cool decorations, I love the expression on the reindeers face, he is just so cute. And the scrabble tile NOEL is exactly my style.

As a harry potter nut and a bookwork, these bookmarks are already in use

 She also sent this brilliant notebook, the fabric of the cover is stitched over and over, so it has a brilliant texture. I love it the wavy design and the casual looseness of it is just lovely

if that all weren't enough! there was this great pouch which is a perfect size for me. And best of all this snowman mug rug, he is pieced (so many little pieces) and embroidered over the top.
