I made this flower yesterday after seeing this tutorial for wallflowers, but instead of using 4 whole napkins as she did, I cut one into four pieces to make a smaller flower which I think will go in the wrapping cupboard to go on a gift at some point . . .

So, I made these cakes today which actually turned out more like muffins than cupcakes and tasted lovely. Just decorated them with either citrus glace icing, orange buttercream or lemon drizzle topping . . . and I think they look very loverly - even if fairly yellow. They also went in the cakebook :) .

Recently I had an idea to make a crocheted bag out of lots of granny squares . . . they are really simple to make and when I put them all together it should look good . . .
To make ones like this you just . . . chain 4
double crochet back into the first chain
chain two and double crochet 3 into the same chain
do this 3 times
slip stitch into the turning chain
double crochet in every stitch
at each corner do 2 double crochets in the first chain
make 2 chains and then do 2 double crochets into the next chain
carry on until its as big as you want it
