January brings the snow, Makes our feet and fingers glow. And it certainly did what a strange month, weather wise, we're having so far, here in Cornwall.
New Year's day was spent on Looe beach, very cold but bright blue skies but by 7pm it had started to snow we only had a sprinkling but Lily was delighted when she woke up the next day.
Then came the rain & flooding on Friday night/ Saturday but by Sunday we were back at Looe in the sunshine.
So when I wasn't weather watching I was signing up to a couple of challenges. Debbie has started a country heart and home cooks 52 week recipe challenge. The first recipe was for the most delicious carrot cake you can try it out here I haven't made the second recipe of mushroom soup yet but will do soon.
I've also signed up to Stephanie at Loft Creations no strings attached challenge, you make string blocks using fabric or scraps that you already have in your stash then make them into whatever you like aiming to have one or more projects finished by June 30th. I haven't made any string blocks before so I'm looking forward to doing this.
