Annie's Ramblings 7th May 2020 - Don't forget Mother's Day!
Hi there. Thank you for all your orders over the past couple of weeks – it is good to know there is still plenty of sewing activity going on out there – and don’t worry, we still have plenty of stock!

This week I thought I would show you a couple of projects that I have been working on. The first is the Nellie Hill- Plus one Quilt by Rosalie Dekker. You will have to forgive the fact that it is not quilted yet!
The quilt measures 68” x 92” (173 x 234 cm), and I have put together a fabric pack for this is the colours I have used. This is $199.90, and the pattern is $9.90. Suitable to all levels of ability it is simple sewing, and all about how you place the fabrics.
The next project is another cutie from Birdhouse designs called “Count your Blessings”. I have put the kit together for this little pincushion with pattern, fabrics, and paper pieces for $23.00. The beautiful little hand turned wooden stool base is available as an optional extra for $24.00.
Now on to the recipe...and bearing in mind that sometimes (any time now) we all need a bit of a treat!
Chocolate Fondant Puddings (makes 6)
- 200 g dark chocolate
- 100 g butter
- 1 tbsp cocoa
- 1 tbsp self-raising flour (yes, only 1 tablespoon)
- 1/3 c sugar
- 3 eggs
Melt the chopped butter and chocolate in a small bowl over a pot of simmering water, and mix until smooth.
Sift the cocoa, flour, and sugar into a bowl and then whisk in the eggs and chocolate mixture.
Grease a large size muffin tin and divide the mixture between 6 holes in the pan. Cover and freeze overnight or for at least 3 hours.
Bake from frozen at 220 C for 7 minutes. If your muffin tins are a different size you may need to alter the cooking time. Serve immediately with cream or icecream and enjoy some chocolate happiness!
Before I tootle off...the winner of the Annie’s $50.00 voucher for March is Sue Eaves from Cave. Congratulations Sue, your voucher is waiting for you.
Keep stitching and carry on...and Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday!
