TUSAL and a loooong update

Hello dear friends, beware this is going to be a loooong post, considering the number of days of silence here. I have been quite busy, what with DH away, me managing everything at home front alone and of course the work. But I have been crafting whenever I could.

My Tusal is a make-shift one, as I am away from home at the moment and could not wait till I take a picture

All the Orts are from seashells

I attended this baking workshop a few weeks back. This was an eggless one.

We were taught to bake brownies, vanilla cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes, strawberry crush filled cupcakes, apple cupcakes with streudel topping, hazelnut swirl cupcakes.

On the decorating front - chocolate ganache, buttercream frosting, rose decoration techniques. These 2 were decorated by me :)
 It was great fun. We took away a lot of tips.

Here's the October cottage, finished and ready to be put up when I go back home.

Just 2 more to go

And finally, I can show you some progress on seashells

It's festival time here, with the start of Navrathri and time to get dressed up, go visiting people. There's a whole lot of positivity and cheer in the air. With this festive note I sign off today

Till next time.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir
