Desserts and stitching

Hello dear friends. I am sure all of you have been very busy stitching and crafting.

This time I decided to try something simple for weekend dessert. I made a cheesecake base and had 2 desserts in a weekend
This was the cheesecake base. V wanted to have strawberry and chocolate variations. So...

That's the strawberry cheesecake. And...
That's the "chocolate" cheesecake. I had a little bit of nutella left over. So, used that as the topping along with hershey's chocolate syrup. Yes, it was as sinful as it sounds. And totally yummmmm...

And I do have a little progress to show you on Jan cottage
I am simply loving each stitch that I am putting into this design. Love the way the colors stand out.

So, my dear dear friends that's the update from me for now. Till my next update.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Cottage SAL

Dear friends, thank you so much for leaving behind your lovely comments :)

I contacted the vendor and they said this is not how the box should be. But unfortunately, they not replace items to India. So, I have to glue the ends back.

Now, for the better part of the post. Yes, I do have some progress made on the JAN cottage

Isn't it a beauty?! I made a mistake last night while stitching the leaves and had to frog them all out and re-do them. I did not receive the recommended WDW and crescent floss along with the kit I ordered. So, I would have to finish the remaining portions while I wait for that to arrive.

Well, that's about it from me for now dear friends. Till my next post.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Till then dear friends.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Look what arrived

This being the first post of the year, I am totally elated. Any guesses?

The postman came knocking yesterday, with my most awaited parcel - yes, the January cottage came knocking
I am itching to start stitching. While I was ordering I also took advantage of the opportunity and ordered a long time wish I had - a sudberry house box

Isn't it a beauty. But this is how it is
Any idea if this is how it normally is? Or is the box damaged? Please please be kind and say that it's not damaged
On the stitchy front, I have only a teeny weeny progress on the seashells. Till my next post..
Take care..Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
