What did I learn this week?


Quite a bit if I may say so myself! My fellow bloggers taught me a few things. I will share 2 of the things with you this week.

Firstly I made the best ever Lemon Curd Cupcakes posted by Lizzie from The Plumtree Bakery, I have never made meringue icing before, it’s easier than you think, follow the link to find the recipe.


I saved the best one for last, I love crocheting and joining yarns is always a problem for me. Well, no more, the “Russian Join” or “felted join” posted by Rahymah from Rahymah Handworks works like a charm. When I want to change a colour at the end of a row I crochet to the end, place a marker in the yarn where the join must be then undo a bit of the work, then join the next colour, please follow the link to find this amazing way of joining yarn.

Quick update on “The Plan” is in progress, just had a few hick ups, hope to show you soon.

Love in crafting

  2. These cupcakes look delightful! I’ve tried to make one meringue frosting before, and it didn’t turn out for me… I’m excited by how well yours turned out. Maybe I’ll try again!

    • Hi Melissa
      I have a feeling it was beginners luck! I have been read up regarding this icing and most recipe suggest you use a sugar thermometer. I did buy myself one because I doubt that I will get it again. Hehehe

  3. Gorgeous lemon cupcakes! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and the like. You have a beautiful blog! Cheers, Mom of Dragon Boy

  4. Oh thank you for liking my blogpost, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen the link you posted for a Russian Join! I have been struggling since I started to crochet back in February with reliable ways to join yarn and this looks like it might be for me.
