A felt sheep magnet

The IronCraft challenge this week was "Spring", and when I think of spring, I think of sheep.

Growing up in the country, spring meant new lambs and shearing and the agricultural show. Oh, the Show - Highlight of the Harvey Social Calender! ^_^

This sheep is made from felt and is a magnet. She has a pretty blue award ribbon because she has won first prize!

Well done, little sheep! ^_^
Inspiration credit goes to Kate - our sheep don't look much the same, but I looked at her sheep to copy the nose stitching. Thanks Kate!

Ninja Cake!

Today was Amy's farewell afternoon tea and I made a cake - a cake that *didn't* crumble as soon as I took it out of the tin! Huzzah! This cake is gluten, wheat, and dairy free - I did cheat though ... I used a packet mix. (Naturally Good, Deliciously Free - Moist Chocolate Mud Cake, if you're interested)

I was most pleased with the icing though ...

It's a chocolate fudge icing ninja!

The green icing is peppermint flavoured - and it was all very tasty ^_^

Have you ever had a ninja cake? Do you have good tricks for making non-crumbly cake? Or icing really well? (My icing is still pretty wonky!)

Harry Potter finger puppets

Hello! Today is a special day - this is my 100th post!
So, Happy 100 Posts-Day! Yay!

And to celebrate, here are some Harry Potter finger puppet patterns - just for you! 

I've only made Harry so far; but as tomorrow Bec and I start our Harry Potter movie marathan (in preparation for the final film!), I think I know what I'll be crafting during my viewing ^_^

I hope you like them - and thanks for sticking with me this far!
And here's to another 100 posts ^_^
