Yummy yummy banana bread!

Last night I stayed up waaay too late to make banana bread. DaddyMopar takes his lunch every day, and with the possibility of no shops nearby as he is a tradie, I try to make tasty lunchbox treats to stop him going and buying his morning tea.

I should bake up a storm and freeze a few varieties of cupcakes and slices, but I haven’t had the time, or researched freezing. Also, DaddyMopar needs to tell me what he likes in his lunchbox. This weekend I will try to make a few things for the freezer, as baking every second night is tiring, especially as I’m doing it after Squeak goes to bed, so I’m up til 2 or 3 in the morning to get everything done.

DaddyMopar Loves it!!

It is supposed to have brown sugar, but I ran out, so I used a combination of white sugar, and golden syrup. DaddyMopar couldn’t tell the difference, and Squeak loved her afternoon snack. Hopefully I will be able to freeze a few slices for another day

Squeak’s persille jumper is coming along nicely, I will hopefully be finished by late next week. The pattern panel is easy to do now as I’ve memorised it so I can sit and mindlessly knit if I get a chance. I can also easily knit this while watching TV.

I am now at the decreasing for where the sleeves will inset, in a few rows the shaping is finished for a while. I might have the front finished tomorrow if I’m lucky. Next I will knit the sleeves, and I am considering knitting both at the same time. I haven’t done it before, but I think it will work well to make sure they are the same length. Also, I tend to get bored by the second sleeve, and sometimes a project will sit for a few weeks before I finish it.

I have also been looking at doll dresses for Squeak’s dolly Deedee, as I want her to have nice outfits. I should be able to knit something up quickly, so maybe a few outfits as it’s nice to have variety.

Any ideas on dolly dresses?

Lots of love,

MummyMopar

Yes, I got a piece to bring home!! Lucky me, as it’s my favorite.

On Sunday we went shopping to buy a replacement doll, as Squeak’s doll had damage on her little plastic doll hand. Off we trotted to buy two new ones. Now we have Baby Deedee, and backup Baby Deedee. There is a stress when your child’s favorite toy is out of commission, and luckily she was easy to replace. Squeak is very attached to Baby Deedee, tries to take her everywhere, and doesn’t want to nap without her. Luckily she didn’t notice that Deedee had changed slightly, and I was very relieved. We also went to Bunnings to get more fabric storage cubes, for my sewing room. Recently I had new shelves built to accommodate the ever-popular fabric storage cubes. I don’t have a built in linen cupboard, or any built in wardrobes, so I need the cubes to be my linen cupboard, as well as my craft cupboard.

Today we continued re-organising my sewing room, It is amazing how much fabric, and wool I have. The local CWA spring show is coming up in a few weeks, and I am tempted to make a few things, as well as finish a few unfinished knitting and quilting projects to enter. I have been too nervous to enter in the past, but this year I think it’s time. I have to decide what I am making, and what projects to finish. One I MUST finish is Squeak’s baby quilt. It is so sweet, pink and purple with butterflies. I hopefully will finish it by the end of the upcoming weekend. fingers crossed.

Do you have unfinished projects? or a suggestion of what I should knit to enter?

Lots of Love,

MummyMopar
