The post-Valentine's Fug

Ok, so I had just a little too much sparkling Prosecco last night....hmmmm, not feeling too bad , but definitely not 100%. The steak was the best we've ever eaten. We picked up two sirloin steaks from the farmer's market in St.A, from the Bassingthorpe Beef stall. I highly recommend their meat. Ok, so it's not the cheapest, but the quality is hard to beat and I'd pay out again and again, infact I do. The 'cheaper' cuts are definitely worth the money and are similar in price to Le Supermarche - lovely shin of beef cooked long and slow, delicious. Actually, £10 for two sirloins isn't really that bad considering they were quite thick and melted in the mouth, much like a fillet but with more flavour.
I think I need something to eat.

More Crafyy Ideas

I was surfin' the net for some inspiration for Valentines presents when I stumbled upon a handmade picture for a child's bedroom. £40...."What?!" I thought, "I could make that for next to nothing"! And so I did.

M helped by editing and colour printing (thank you to his office!) the background I'd found on t'internet. I created the felt shape and blanket stitched it. Et voila! You'd never know the fact, which one did I make?!
