Cinnamon Rolls

The first pastries for the Three Broomsticks have just come out of the oven, and boy, do they smell good!

The white icing’s a little messy and thin for my liking, but it was the first time I’d mixed paint and glue together, so I’m hoping the next time I use the mixture it’ll turn out better.

I also made the paper bag here, and the silver cake stand in the first picture.

River seems to like the smell at least…

…although I’m not sure Mr Bentley quite agrees with her! Maybe it’s his Spanish roots.

Anyways, see ya

Upcycling

I tried to make a long-sleeved shirt for Sarah, and it didn’t end well, unfortunately. Until I had the bright idea to upcycle it into a short-sleeved shirt.

You can see the cut-off sleeves in the top corner above.

Sarah helped out too, holding it while I hemmed raw edges.

IMG_1807_1

Looks good, doesn’t it? Its material is slightly thicker than the other shirts’ so it’s perfect for the colder weather we’ve had recently.

In fact, it’s the perfect weather to light the fire…

… and bury yourself under a blanket with a hot drink and a book.

Anyways, see ya!

Winter Bunting

Do you guys remember the autumn bunting I made a while ago? Well, this is a winter version of that bunting.

IMG_1793_1

I made it with the same pattern as the last one, just different shades.

IMG_1794_1

It’s actually two triangles shorter than the autumn one, although I’ve no idea why.

IMG_1795_1

It matches the winter-y blanket, too!

I see the Three Broomsticks has been decorating for the season. 🙂

Anyways, see ya!

Sarah’s Threads

Sarah – finally! – got a new shirt. The Captain America one really needed a wash and a rest from wear.

Again, a simple Velcro fastening in the back.

Looks good under the hoodie!

IMG_1779_1

I was playing around with new PicMonkey overlays here.

It does look like she’s walking here, doesn’t it? I’ve had the fabric for a while, and I knew from the start it would look good as a shirt.

Thinking about shirt designs is giving me ideas for other shirts now…

Anyways, see ya!

Ready to Order?

I finished the Three Broomsticks counter today.

IMG_1772_1

The circular Three Broomsticks logo was originally going to be on the front of the store, but I think I like it here just as much.

IMG_1773_1

There’s also a little glass box for displaying cakes and pies when they get made. For now, we put some ice creams in.

IMG_1774_1

The orange curved bench-top, which would probably look way out of place in any other store!

IMG_1776_1

IMG_1777_1

Looking good! I may make booth seating next, or I could do a cake stand and something to put on it. We also need a coffee machine, and definitely a chalk menu behind the counter… not to mention the food. I’d better get busy!

See ya!
