Finally A Finish

First off apologies for the bad photo :). But I finally finished something in time for Halloween ( I wont be around for Halloween but that is a totally different story LOL)
This is a freebie from Jaunty Fox Designs, and I can see myself stitching this one again as the design lends itself to a mulitple choice of fabrics and threads.......

I've Got Me An Addiction!

Hi my name is Vicky and I am a kitchen gadet addict! I just couldn't resist my latest purchase it was all red and shiny and with summer heading our way I am sure it will get a lot of use.
I actually did a test run on Sunday and made some raspberry icecream. I had the raspberries in the freezer, went low fat on the milk etc. I was surprised how much it made. If anyone has any good ice cream recipes that they care to share please email me :)
