 I managed to get another sewing tin done,if anyone is wanting to have a go at these i got this hinged tin from Aldi's it was full of Dutch spiced Bikkies for $5.99,now i just need to made up the Etui to go into it and i will have another matching set,lol.

 I made this carrot cake yesterday and it was the moistest and loveliest carrot cake that we have ever had,this recipe will be a regular for us,lol.
 And here is the recipe for you if you would like to have a go at making one.
I had run out of SR flour so i used half white and wholemeal for the flour and i made up double the amount of icing as i didnt think there was enough with what the recipe said and i love cream cheese icing,lol.
I am still not a 100% but i am heaps better,hope you are all well,and I hope you all have a wonderful day
