My Creative Space
I held my breath and ... I cut into it!
Dolce by Tanya Whelan has long been a favourite of mine so when I got this Marilyn Grey I knew it was for something very cool.
We bought new pillows so I decided that this fabric would look great as pillow cases.
I was thinking of getting a matching panel for the cases but then when it came in I didn't like the way it looked if I were to make a cuff for it.
I can't wait to get them finished and have only cut out the pieces.
In other news I made these yummy Mars Bar Slices for a party.
They were a huge hit (even if I used dark chocolate for the topping, hence the milk chocolate lattices I piped on top).
I also made my favourite and very easy Beef Stir-fry with Hokkien noodle.
I recieved lovely comments about this too.
I think people believe that Asian people are born with stir-fry skills but seriously you can learn it very easily. The method is to brown your meat first in hot oil in batches.
Then remove and fry your vegies in a little stock and steam them on the wok for a minute or two. Then add your meat back in the wok and add your soy sauce, oyster sauce and salt and pepper. That's it! Enjoy your healthy stir-fry.
That's about as creative I got this week. More spaces at Kirst's.
If you're busy like me please take time to SLOW DOWN.
I watched an Oprah program today where this lady had one change in her busy schedule and she left her two year old in the car by accident, where she passed away due to heat stroke, and they found her 8 hrs later. It was a heart-breaking story and she was so brave to share it with everyone.
Please, please, please take your time to be WITH your children and be mindful of them.
If I can reach out to one person this post would have been really worth it.
