Easy Envelope Cushion Tutorial

I have been wanting to do this project for a while but I just hadn't found the fabric I wanted. 
As you will know, I found it! At the Creative Stitches, Fashion Embroidery & Hobbycrafts Show two weeks ago.

I am not an expert at sewing and I bought my first sewing machine only a couple of months ago but this is an ideal beginner project.

So let's get started!

Hot Cross Buns

One a penny, two a penny... Yes, it's that time of year. Easter is just around the corner and I will be visiting family at the weekend so I thought homemade Hot Cross Buns would go down a treat!

Creative Stitches, Fashion Embroidery & Hobbycrafts show

This weekend I traded in the baking for the Creative Stitches, Fashion Embroidery & Hobbycrafts show (wow that's a mouthful). It was at the ExCeL Centre, London and my friend Stacey joined me. The ExCeL is a great location, jumping off the DLR at Prince Regent and strolling straight in was so convenient. It was £10 entry which is a great price however, we did miss out on a half price ticket with Groupon - really need to start checking the deal websites more often!!

Gâche Melée

Gâche Melée, pronounced "Gosh Mel-Are" is a traditional Guernsey dish, commonly made with suet to make a heavy apple cake. There are soo many variations of this recipe but this is my take and again its super simple.
