Stitching Christmas Pudding.


Hello ladies,
I'm sooo excited and I couldn't wait to show you my latest project. I'm soooooooo pleased with the way it turned out. I'll try and calm down a little bit so that I can type without having to backspace every other tippity tap!


Look! Look! Look at that little pool of thick cream that has trickled down the pudding and gathered on the plate.
Juicy red berries and prickly green holly leaves
and lots of delicious trickily, dribbily, thick cream.


Hmmm... smell that cinnamon.

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

Sorry about all that, but I'm feeling terribly, terribly smug. I wasn't expecting it to turn out so well. In fact I wasn't sure I could do it at all!

Thank you for letting me share my excitement with you.

Hmmm... I wonder if I can remember how to make another one?

So deliciously authentic darling. I really did think it was edible when I saw the first photo. You have every right to feel chuffed with yourself.

I love your Christmas pud and the cream dripping on the plate is great! By coincidence I made a teacosy pudding before Christmas but trimmed the bottom of mine with a lace doiley you can see a photo on my blog. I made it up as I went along, but friends have asked for the pattern so I have to try and remember how to do it!
