That's sounds very cute! I have my woollen threads on wooden pegs, but to be honest I'm pretty lazy and mostly they don't get put back on after I unravel some. :( I'm naughty like that :) Mel x

This has been a real struggle to get it to this stage. It's not that I haven't enjoyed the process, but I always mull over what I'm going to embroider in the squares so much!! I hope you enjoy pulling yours back out x

oh YAY!! That's so lovely that you're making them for your girls for Christmas - love that idea. I'm really surprised at how quickly it's crocheting up and I am already wondering if somebody else might like one. xx

I feel your pain Ange and I'm not sure I have a solution for this. To be honest, I doubt that my 18 year old will receive anything handmade this year, because I feel like I'd be making, just for the sake of making - does that make sense? The only thing I could think to make him, would be a knitted blanket (like the chunky one above), but he already has quite a few blankets/quilts on his bed, so that rules this out. He's not a beanie/scarf type boy either and although I'd quite like to make him some knitted socks, I have a feeling that they would just sit in his cupboard unworn. He doesn't really put anything on his Christmas list at all, so he's always tricky at the best of times, but he's really into mountain biking so I know that something along these lines would be much loved and well used. I know this isn't handmade, but I think Leonie's idea for a teenage gift is really cool: http://www.kiwiatheart-leonie.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/spend-free-september-week-one.html Mel x

Well done on all that scarf knitting Suzan. I think the memory box idea for your dad is so wonderful, I'm sure he'll really love it. I also love your stationery set idea, thanks for sharing that. xx

Carly, thanks for trying the recipe, but mostly thank you for sharing how you did the blueberries!! I am really excited to try this for some other fruits. I didn't know about violets being edible either - wow! Mel xx

oh YAY, Bron. I'm going to make another batch today & will try your 'hot tip' of popping them in the oven just before the school run - which should make for very happy kids :)

Thanks Suzan & me too. I always chose a simple recipe over something involved and I'm a bit like this with craft projects too.

Haha, I'm SURE you had no trouble getting him to taste test for you. I hope he enjoyed them xx
