Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Make A Thing

Today was the last hook-in until the new year.
Sadly it snowed and snowed and snowed and then commenced to blow.
Just two dear hookers showed up, unfazed we had a rollicking afternoon and here is what I made us to eat:

Toblerone Shortbread
1 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
Beat until it cries out for help.
1/4 cup corn starch
1, 1/2 cups flour
Beat until it is light and fluffy.
Chill  for 30 minutes.
2 or maybe 3 mini toblerone bars separated into wee mountains.
Take a tbsp of dough, flatten out into a disc on your hand, you may need to flour your hands.
Lay the toblerone in the middle of disc. Fold up the edges of the circle to cover the chocolate. Add pinches more of dough if needed to cover completely. No cracks fissures or thin areas allowed or the chocolate will escape.
375˚F for 12 to 14 minutes.Truly, you must try these.

Yesterday I dyed some new original colours over Dorr's Sparkle Wool, yes you can dye it, the sparkle is polyester and won't hurt your cutter.
I also spun some wool to contrast with the colours for our little star man project.

And today I made started some fingerless gloves, not quite done the other one.

Look here soon for a little pattern, recipes and tutorial to make this sweet guy.
It's my Christmas gift to you.
