Last Sunday was my Dad's 81st. I thought I would try American peanut butter pie, my favorite dessert when I was there. It was not as successful as I wanted . Our cornflour must be stronger as the filling was too thick and I couldn't get the peanut butter crumble to go on the base so I used crushed buttersnap biscuits. It didn't work the same but I am going to try again and do some modifications. One of my goals for this year is not to waste food so I made a pavlova with the egg whites which were not required for the recipe The pool and the BBQ were well used.

On my journey to getting back into it I found a pile of tea towels and hand towels that I had planned on decorating for gifts. So I am into getting these done. They are very basic but done ready for the present box. I always think a cute tea towel over the bread basket at a BBQ is a nice touch. They have only been in the cupboard for about three years, so naughty.
A couple of hand towels to jazz up the bathroom .

Getting down to my sewing space. I had to find a spot for this beautiful little quilt Denice gave me in November when I visited her in Michigan. ( You will find her at "Denice's Day" on my side bar. http://weesied.blogspot.com.au/ )I could not find any wall space so it is at the entrance to my sewing room on my Nana's Singer treadle. It so lovely just like a flower garden inside.
I finally got to my sewing space after reading Chooky's and Googy's blog. I really must get in there every day.

I have spent some time over the holidays making these little decorations by Artsi2 . I bought a couple of packs back from Houston. They are cute and easy. I have also spent some time reading Sue Spargo's new book.
