All things LOVEly



Belated Happy Valentines my Blogettes!

I have been super busy writing blog posts and taking pictures, writing tutorials and testing patterns to share with you all and I hit slump with my internet connection.  It's still not resolved but today is ever so slightly better than it has been :O(

So here we go with a catch up on what I've been up to ...



For Valentine's Day I went totally overboard as I do :O) and made everything I could possibly do heart shaped.  I even cut my strawberries out (above) using heart shaped cookie cutters.  Simply slice the strawberry into thick slices and using a really small cookie cutter cut out your shapes.  Perfect!  Fiddly but pretty cute :o)




I also went mad making latte's just so I could use my love stencils.  I'm normally a strong black americano type of girl but I went mad for a few days and had a few lattes to perfect my stencilling technique.


On the eve of Valentines day I had an evening tea with my friend Carole, complete with heart shaped sugar lumps (tutorial on how to make them here) raspberry buns iced with white chocolate and topped with heart strawberries and shortbread biscuits iced with white chocolate and red heart sprinkles :O) 


The week continued with lots of heart shaped lovelies including lots of these heart shaped pancakes (recipe here).





and even a heart shaped breakfast  




and lots more but I'm pretty sure you've had enough by now :O) 

Hope you all had a lovely Valentines' whatever you were doing. 

Sorry again for lack of posts.

More to come including details on this little chappie ...


Hope everyone's having a lovely relaxing Sunday x
