A Round Tuit 255

Hello and welcome to another week at Creating my way to Success. I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

We had a lovely family day out here in Cairns yesterday up at Copperlode Dam where my husband was running in the 'Black Snake Trail Run'!  We were his cheer team for the day and enjoyed the time by the lake while he ran around in the bush! It's just beautiful up there!


So now it's time to see what you've all been up to! Let's get started.

----------------------------
Welcome to this week's linky party. A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.

Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 
Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all, this idea was just too cute I had to share, 
Paddington Cupcakes from Optimistic Mommy:


Finally, another embroidery hoop craft project. This time a 
Kids Yarn Chandelier from Albion Gould:

Pavlova - the recipe!


I posted this picture of a pavlova I made a couple of days ago when I had cream, eggs and fruit to use up, and was asked if I'd post the recipe!

Pavlova is a dessert believed to have been created in honour of the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, when she toured Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.
Australians and New Zealanders still argue over the true country of origin!

Whoever created it - hats off to them, it's a very tasty dessert - crispy on the outside and soft yummy meringue on the inside!


So here is how to make one:


4 Egg Whites
Pinch of Salt
1 Teaspoon Cornflour
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Essence
1 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
200g (8oz) Caster Sugar
Cream
Fresh Fruits

Preheat Oven to 140C (280F).
Add salt to egg whites and whisk until stiff. Gradually add the sugar, whisking until very stiff. Stir in cornflour, vanilla and lemon juice. Spoon onto baking sheet to form a 3cm (1") deep circle.
Bake for around 1 hour until it looks pale brown and is hard to touch.
Allow to cool, then top with whipped cream and fresh fruit.
Enjoy!

A Round Tuit 253

Good morning from Cairns!
We're half-way through our school holidays here and I'm having a lovely time with my girls.
Less blogging is happening, but once they're back at school I'll have plenty to get stuck into and share!

For now - let's see what everyone else has been up to!

Here's my favourites from last week's party:
 
First of all, some very cute 
DIY simple and sweet owl pillows from Creatively Homespun:


Finally, a brilliant upcycle from Bikelovin -
 a pinboard made from an old t-shirt and bike inner tubes. Genius!

Book Covers - A Birthday Present

Today is my elder daughter's birthday!
This year she asked for something I could make for a present, so of course I was very happy!

She started high school this year and has lots of exercise books for all her different subjects. She asked for fabric covers for them so she can easily identify each subject's book! I'd made a couple for my girls before for different sized books. 


I had fun choosing my prettiest and most fun fabrics for her.

This one is a final remnant I had from when we decorated her room - it's on her roman blind, a bolster cushion and her pinboard...and now a book cover!


I'm sure she'll love them.
It's always nice to make things for my girls!

She'll definitely have the brightest books at school - and they're not likely to get mixed up with anyone else's.

Do your kids ever ask you to make things for them for their birthdays and Christmas presents?
