I just love them-They are sterling silver and the ear wires have the cutest little flowers on them. Thank you so much Barbara :)

I decided to make a ball for Joseph-with all the toys he has been given he doesn't have a ball. I made a pattern piece that I thought looked about right-I was wrong they were too fat so after sewing it all together I had to cut two panels out so it didn't look like a pumpkin! I used red ribbon for tags and different textured fabric. I think it looks ok now and more importantly he loves it.

Here's how to make one-
1 large coffee mug
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
3 tablespons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons choc chips
Add dry ingredients to mug and mix well. Make sure the measurements are level-not heaped. Add the egg and mix thoroughly. Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add choc chips(if you want) and vanilla and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 mins on high(1000watts). Cake will rise over the top. Allow to cool a little and tip out onto a plate if desired (I ate mine from the cup)
Mine was a bit dry but I think that was because I ate too much before it was cooked so I only really had half the mixture left. Next time I might try to make it self saucing or have some cream with it. Thanks Heather xxx

Last weekend I rediscovered crochet. I learnt how when I was younger but prefered knitting so I haven't done any for a long, long time. With help from my sister and cousin and a long phone call to my Auntie, I finished a granny square. With a bit more practice, and probably a lot of unpulling, I hope one day I can make things like these :))
