I decided to use up some left-over yarn from a previous project by making a cushion cover. Completely ad libbed - a granny square for the front and some granny stripes for the back.
Otherwise there hasn't been much crafting going on, but I have been busy in the kitchen in a sudden urge to try my hand once more at some gluten-free baking. I think Andy was tempted to take cover when I declared that baking was on the itinerary as previous GF attempts haven't exactly been resounding successes (think rock solid loaves of bread that, if fired from a cannon or simply dropped on a foot, could inflict serious injury) but this time was different.
Armed with some new recipe books (Phil Vickery's 'Seriously Good! Gluten-Free Cooking' and 'Seriously Good! Gluten-Free Baking') and a new bread maker with a gluten-free programme I've been baking up a storm: Yorkshire puds, lots of different types of bread, cakes ... As I type there is bread baking in the bread maker and some lentil soup on the stove ... I'm looking forward to lunch today!
I know I've had some success baking if Andy will eat the results - he doesn't need a gluten-free diet but was quite happy to scoff down the Yorkshire puds, deemed one loaf of white bread to be surprisingly good (was I sure it was gluten-free?!) and loves the fruit cake that is rapidly disappearing. Now I've just got to crack pizza dough ....!!
