A very creative day :o)!

Today I baked!! I can't remember the last time I baked. Heavens isn't that dreadful!!!??!So this is what I made, a coconut slice. Soooo easy and soooo yummy!! I can think of several ways to 'fancy it up' ... I think a layer of lemon butter through the middle would be just delicious ........ or maybe some frozen berries sprinkled over the batter before cooking ..... Mmmmm. Might have to bake again real soon ;o).

I was also pretty pleased with this afternoon's efforts. I decided to make a bag for my gorgeous Mum for her birthday on Sunday ...
I already had the stitchery so all I had to do was make the bag to go with it ;o)........Would you believe this bag only took 4 hours to make?? It's true ... just 4 hours :o)!!
I'm going to a shop called "Britain on the Bayside" tomorrow to get some goodies from England to put in it. They have loads of things that Mum used to really enjoy - like PG Tips tea, and pork pies and fruit and malt loaf .........
They also have some stuff that I like too so I might just have to take a bag for me as well :o).
