I Love Making Stuff!

Even though it has been raining, it has been perfect weather for making things!
I've made a couple of these zippered bags... one for my husbands cousin and one for my silk thread cotton reels! They are such handy little bags.
I love this fabric.
I used the Faith, Hope and Love cotton tape for little wrist straps.
Back view of the bags.
My husbands cousin has got me into cheese making! When we were in Sydney last week she showed me how to make Labneh cheese.
It's a delicious cream cheese and very, very easy to make. It's wonderful for dips and salads, but I also just love it spread on bread or toast.
This batch I made is marinated in oil, infused with garlic, pepper and chilli flakes!
It's soooo good!
I have also (finally) bought myself a yoghurt maker and I'm having a lot of fun with that too!
I hope you are all having a very creative, productive day!
Have fun whatever you're doing!
Oh yes, by the way..... it's STILL raining!

My goodness, you're branching out in all directions! I love your little bags. The fabric reminds me of some scrapbook paper that I once had. Too pretty to use. The cheese looks interesting.
