Calm Before the Knitting Storm

Tomorrow is the day I always look forward to every year: The Knitting and Stitching Show! To be honest, I have been so busy and I didn’t realise it was this weekend until a day before yesterday.
Firstly though, I would like to thank Fancy Elastic for a fantastic recipe of a treacle tart. My absolute favourite since school (never knew how to make it). I must say that half way through making it, I realised that I did not have a food processor (duh!) so I had to use my crafty hands to make bread cumbs – so you can see they are coarse!!
Nevermind, because it tasted ABSOLUTELY YUMMY!!! Thank you very much!!
Making my fist treacle tart made me realise few things:
1) making a tart is fun! – now that I know I can buy a ready make crust pastry, I can do other tart quickly.
2) treacle tart is really lethal! I was fasting yesterday for Yom Kippur and when I broke the fast I ate this tart. I was not hungry many hours after this….. To be honest I have been scoffing a huge piece of this during my school years. No wonder I put on weight!
3) I am very clumsy. While I was making this, I burnt my arm, I dropped things, I banged my head on the kitchin door. What is wrong with me!!? I have no co-ordination.

Anyway, although I wanted to complete my knit bag from my previous post before the knitting and stitching show… I still haven’t managed to do it. I think I will by the end of next week.
The interior is going well.
I will sleep early tonight as I have a early start. I already have my favourite focaccia to take for lunch. I shall take lots of photos of the show on my next post!

Have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi! The treacle tarts looks great! I use a small food processor made by Kenwood, called the Mini Chopper as recommended by Dehlia Smith. It's really usefull.

    The Knitting & Stitching show was great wasn't it, I will blog about it tomorrow.

    I have never really been a fan of knit handbags – trust you to come along and completely change my mind! That bag is superb – can’t wait to see the finished product.
