Slow and Steady...

I thought I could complete this by the end of the year but at the rate I'm going memang tak boleh.... My next target is end of January!
I managed to get some backstitching done and filled in most of the white spaces on the house...Can you see the other cat?
Hopefully the next time I show this piece it will be complete...wish me luck!!

Jom makan lagi...
Yesterday terlebih rajin...buat apple crumble.... makan with custard...yum yum!

This is the recipe...senang aje nak buat!

Apple Crumble:
Source: Women's Weekly Cookbook - Sweet Old-fashioned favourites

5 large apples ( I normally use 10 green apples)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup water

3/4 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
80g butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

1. Grease ovenproof dish. Peel, core and cut apples into cubes.
2. Combine apples, sugar and water in large pan, cover; cook over low heat about 10 mins or until apples are tender.
3. Drain apples, discard liquid. Spread apples into prepared dish; sprinkle the crumble mixture on top.
4. Bake in moderate oven about 30mins or until golden brown.

To make the crumble:
Combine sifted flour and cinnamon in bowl; rub in butter. Add sugar, mix well.

Custard tu pandai2 le buat sendiri ok...cos me just main agak2 aje!

Pinkeep Exchange
I received a package on Monday afternoon... however due to some technical difficulties i am only able to update my blog today... hehe sorry for the delay.

Inside this package was a lovely pinkeep from my partner, Index.

See I can also gantung it! Nice kan?

I've noticed that whenever Index takes part in an exchange, she will always add something extra and this time was no exception. She also made a lovely doily for Cik Noxxa, my hardworking maid! When I looked at the doily it crossed my mind that even though she must have been very very busy packing at that time, she still took the time and trouble to make that something extra for me.... For that I am very grateful.... thank you my dear Index.

So here is Cik Noxxa with her new Index says we must keep our hardworking maids happy! Btw the doily is very neat and nicely done, you wouldn't know that it was done by a beginner.

And this is another pic of the goodies that I got... of course one can never forget the surat cinta! To my dear friend Index...thank you for everything.... hope you are settling down well in your new place and will be very very happy there....
