Happy St Patrick’s Day!

Top o’the morning to you all- I hope your St Patrick’s Day is a really good one!

Yesterday, in preparation for tonight’s dinner, I made Irish cupcakes and soda bread I had cupcakes in the oven, ganache on the stove, soda bread working on the other counter and butter getting soft for the frosting and I kept expecting Paul Hollywood to jump out at me from the shadows any minute!

My lovely brass handtool arrived yesterday from Dimitris in Greece:

It’s beautiful and heavy and I can’t wait to learn how to use it and everything it can do.

Also in the post were all the tiny hand dyed silk ribbons I wanted for the ribbon flowers on the tea cosy I’m designing. I’m not even close to needing them yet but I do like to have all my supplies gathered ahead of time.

Sometimes I just want to work on everything at once… I wish I had more hands and more time!!
