Although the sun is currently trying to make an appearance, it's a wild and wintry day here on the Isle of Man. The wind is gusting up to 70 mph. There are some fierce showers rattling through and next doors mail box is clattering! So that makes it a very good day to stay at home, wrapped up warm and doing something creative. Like my cross stitch. Santa finally has a face, I'm all caught up on the back stitching, and the only thing that remains to be stitched are the toys in his sack, I already made a start on the dolly, that's her blue dress you can see there.
I'm hoping to get Santa finished today. But first I got busy in the kitchen, it's a good day to have the oven on too!
I made Chocolate and orange marble muffins. Once they have cooled I'll add a creamy chocolate topping and a slice of Terrys chocolate orange.
I'm off to sew while the cakes cool down.
I'll try to get a photo of both finishes, but I suspect the cakes may be difficult, they disappear fast! There are already three missing!
