sea creatures..

I have finally finished these lovely hand dyed felt sea creatures, the photo was taken before I attached the little washers for the magnet on the fishing rod to grab.

A set for our boys and a set for a little friend who turned 3.





My treasures love them, I love the 'boat' they built to fish from..



home baked goodness

No mama I am not eating raw dough! Ben's snail bun.

Before.


After. The sultanas popped off the bread!


When I friend offered to help me make a loaf last week I jumped at the chance, you see, I have tried and tired and failed and failed to make bread from scratch and have it turn out edible..



We used this recipe. The boys used sultanas and cinnamon on their lovely creations. I used feta, silverbeet and basil in the mine..

Tasted delicious and we can't wait to make more, there is something homely, comforting and nourishing I find in the process of making food from scratch. Bread making has always been included in the Steiner playgroups we have attended for the last four years so it is special for the boys as well.
