My photography gets worse - think I must have a bit of a shake on just lately, maybe I should get a tripod for my camera. I baked shortcake again yesterday, a very useful item to have in my cake tin. If I make six at a time that means we have puddings for three days and none get wasted. If I make more than this we get fed up with them. This time I used the silicone muffin pan (can't call it 'tin' anymore!). It feels really weird to put this soft, floppy pan in a hot oven. These shortcakes turned out a lovely colour and rose really well, mainly because I used double the amount of baking powder by mistake and because the mixture was a bit dry I added a drop of milk at the end and didn't mix it in thoroughly. They were very light and fluffy.
I'm still doing freestyle embroidery. The light this morning was terrible until a few minutes ago and I struggled to see. I've got my lamp with the daylight bulb on and the ceiling spotlights but it was still a struggle. Now the sun has come out and it's much better. This time I'm stitching what vaguely looks like cow parsley/Queen Anne's Lace, or even giant hog weed. It'll be made up into another little pouch. I love making these pouches, the bigger ones are useful for storage, the small ones are mainly made because I just like them. I have several of them, big and small, scattered around my craft room and bed room. There are several scattered around the world too!!! I love the thought that my work is in so many countries.
