The other things making me happy today are these proteas from our playgroup cake stall. Have a great weekend everyone.

We did some baking for the playgroup cake stall tomorrow. Anzacs and Chocolate Chip and Golden Syrup biscuits. Here is the recipe for the latter - the measurements are only approximate - I'm not big on measuring.
Chocolate Chip and Golden Syrup Biscuits
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup SR flour
2 tbsp golden syrup
2/3 cup choc chips ( I prefer the dark chocolate ones, but any will do)
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients. Form into little balls and bake at 180 degrees C for 10-15 minutes, until they start to brown.

So if you would like this bag and a book - Fog Linen work ISBN 4579209303 all you have to do is leave a comment by Thursday evening Western Australian time telling me a good, not to stressful activity to do with two year olds. I need some more ideas to keep the girls amused. And yes I'll post anywhere.

Even a packet of tiny teddies couldn't tempt Amelia to sit still. I took this picture in the 1 second she sat in the chair before she started screaming. So she sat on my lap and they managed to quickly cut her hair, but she couldn't be in on having water sprayed on her hair or having a bit of a blow dry, unlike Grace who loved that bit.

I have finished up a few things. Some flower yo-yos for hairclips. I got mine here.
Another bag - it is going to be sad to cut into the last of this fabric. I had some blue fabric the same which has all been used. I think these were nearly my favourite bits of fabric ever. Definitely top ten. Another giraffe. I actually made identical twins, one has gone to live with the sweetest little baby called Braydon.

We had a massive thunderstorm here yesterday which blew the filters on the internet, which we just got fixed and completely freaked the dog and the girls out - the storm freaked them out not the lack of internet which is what completely freaked me out.
So there has been no crafting this week, but I have recieved a lovely pile of old fabric from Mum's friend Lys. Here is just a bit of it, there is bits of linen and barkcloth in there so now I am inspired to go and do a bit of sewing.
