As Seen - sherbet

When I was a young child my mother used to make my brother and I sherbet. I've never forgotten the ingredients 12 tsp of Icing Sugar 1 tsp Citric Acid 1tsp Bicarbonate of soda this has to be mixed together well, put it onto a sheet of greaseproof paper and roll it with a rolling pin. Mum used to make greaseproof paper cones and we used our finger to eat it.
I don't know what trigger this thought but I just had to make some but decided to find something to use as a dabber. A marshmallow that had gone a bit dry on a skewer perfect. I only made about quarter of the mixture as I really didn't think I could manage the whole amount myself
So my picture for today is ....
Sherbet dib dab

I haven't even been out today, I decided I really, really, really must do something about the state of my craft room.

It's going to be a long job as I have made very little headway with it. I could have just cleared the desks but that wouldn't have sorted out my stash and that is the main object of the game. So no more photos until I have done a lot more work.

Today I am grateful to have made a start of the mammoth job.

Good luck Mary - that is a demotivating amount of clutter!

Mary I am sure you will manage to get the task done.
I have seen similar craft rooms transform into organised work areas over the past few months. My craft room being one of those.
Good luck, looking forward to seeing the fruits of your labour.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
