There is so much to do in the Creation Station at the moment. More blocks to make up for my NewFO and the binding to put onto my UFO. I could also be preparing the next blocks for my BOMs but I thought I would take the time to do some tidying up. And what better way than to make up some more mini bolts for all the fabric I have bought lately.
Oh goodness me, I really do have a problem when it comes to fabric. I have been looking at some of this fabric today and realise that I have no idea at all what I am going to use it for. This one, for instance, that I fell in love with last week and brought home all that was left on the bolt (2m).....where or what will I use it for?
It took me quite a while to make the mini bolts up as I was getting caught up in drooling over my own fabric stash. After lunch I decided it would be nice to have a little sweet treat so (even though it is so hot) I set to making some date muffins.
Date Muffins (makes 6 generous muffins)
2 egg whites
1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup self-raising wholemeal flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup chopped soft dates ( I like lots of dates so I add a few more than this)
Lightly whisk the egg whites till they look frothy and then add all the other ingredients and mix just to bind together into a smooth batter. Divide into 6 muffin cups and bake at 160 degrees C. I bake for about 15 minutes and test to see if they are cooked through. (sorry I am not too precise on the time but it does vary on how big your muffin cups are)
Oh yummy, that his the spot
