About Me

My photo
I retired early because my legs don't like holding me up for too long. So now I can do things in my own time. I like to sell things at farmers market. Most of which, I've made myself, e.g. homemade soap, crochet dish cloths, hand towels, baby afghans and of course,..tatting.

Lots to share

Here is the latest member of the choir. I call her Angelica. She's made with Lizbeth Blue Ice.
 Next is the gingerbread house my daughter and I put together yesterday. It was lots of fun.
 And here's a cold sunrise picture I took a few mornings ago.

  2. Very sweet angels! And the gingerbread house looks adorable! I always wanted to make one of those but was too intimidated!

    1. The secret is to buy the kit with the walls already made. We used way more Royal icing than what came in the kit. I had some Royal icing powder in my pantry. It was a little old, but it worked well. Not sure it will taste very good, as my icing was old. So, if you buy a kit, pick up some Royal icing powder, so you'll have lots to play with. My talented daughter made the icicles in the front of the house. I made an attempt on the sides. Her's are much nicer looking. But we had great fun together and that was the whole purpose.

  4. I saw your beautiful ice blue angel on intatters and left you a message on there, she is beautiful.
    Nice ginger beard house, looks lovely well done to your daughter.
    Your sunrise made me feel cold, we have a frost this morning and it's getting colder here in the UK

  5. I had to do a double take of where you lived, then I understood :) That looks cold. And I could kick my self, I ordered a bunch of stuff and never purchased Blue Ice, she is just beautiful! :) And love your gingerbread talent, It's times like these that makes me glad I didn't come over and see your house, I would weigh even more :)

  6. Blue Ice Angel looks so wintry, and perfect for the Christmas season. Nice gingerbread house. ...I used to make them, but without a kit, and always used the meringue powder...is that what you used? hmmm, I think I still have some left........

    1. The kit came with some icing already made. I found it wasn't enough, but I had some powdered Royal Icing in my pantry. So I made that up and was able to complete our gingerbread house that way. I probably got the powder at Nutters. Do you think meringue powder and royal icing are the same thing?
