Bits and Pieces...

Hi everyone well I have been wanting to post a few of the things that I have been doing so thought I would put them altogether and just tell you a bit about them..

Adult version of ice cream cake.. 
This cake was so yummy My daughter wanted an ice cream cake for her birthday so this is what we came up with. It is 2 layers of brownies and 2 layers of ice-cream.  With the ice cream layers I actually let a 4 litre ice cream tub slightly soften and then cut it into the circle shape and layers then refroze.. You have to do it quick and I tell you what it freezes your fingers.. Over the top I put mint chip ice magic chocolate, that you melt and then pour over and it hardens.  Well I have had requests now that this is the go to cake for birthdays so easy..  Oh peppermint crisp crumbled over layers and over the top.. Thought it would be hard to cut but it was fine with a warm knife.. 

This is a cape I knitted for my daughter it turned out really great and she loved it. It was really thick chunky wool.. Was so quick to knit but tricky to get the right size needles a few tension squares later and I hit the right ones.. I loved the blend of colours in the wool, but I am fond of blues.. 

Playing with watercolours.. The quote is.. We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.. Max De Pree..  I do like some bits of this and I always find it relaxing with my watercolours.  I am getting better about writing on my projects after all it will only get better with practice.. 

So there is still more bits and pieces that I have to post up but this will do for today.. Have a great day
Sandy :)
