A new start and a WIP

I just realized that there was no update from me last week. Well, there has not been much happening, crafty wise or other wise.

Guess who celebrated her birthday last weekend.. yay, you guessed right, me of course.

The day was a pretty much low-key one. V and I were at home waiting for the carpenter to turn up half the day. Then the evening we went shopping for some baking ingredients. For the first time I bought Golden syrup
It's awfully expensive, but wanted to try it in a recipe

V and I tried our hand at a new recipe. I wanted to use peanut butter and V wanted some bars/squares. So our search lead us to Choco-peanut butter squares

It really came out yummy. We do not get corn syrup in India, so I used the golden syrup instead. As I do not know why corn syrup is used, am not sure how different the taste would have been had I used it. Any tips on that??

My bro and SIL had bought an unfinished frame for V to complete over summer holidays. She decided to finish that over the weekend.
I did not help her at all with this. She did everything on her own. The choice of colors and the ideas are totally hers.
As V calls it, that's "the face of the frame"

Finally on the stitchy front, I started with April cottage and made a teeny bit of progress on Sea shells project. But the progress is not that great to post a picture yet. Promise to post something next time

So, with that friends I take leave from you now. Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
