Excitement levels are running pretty high at my house at the moment.
A little package popped through my door the other day. It had travelled all the way from America containing this magazine and it made me woop a little woop and dance a little jig. Well, maybe not literally, but I definitely did squeak a bit.
The reason for my mouse impression was the realisation that what I held in my hands was a little bit of fantasy dreamland made real. Because this magazine, good ladies and gentlemen (should there be any gentlemen reading) contains a step by step tutorial written by my very own self. Can you believe it?
Look, here it is. Printed on proper paper with pages that turn and everything.
Look, that's my little face and my actual name. It's dream-like to see it, but don't pinch me, I don't want to wake up!
The tutorial shows you how to make a Casserole Cover, which you can adapt to suit your own dish size and I'm pretty pleased with how it came out. It's a sort of cozy to keep the contents warm, perfect for transporting a warming treat to a friend or to take to a dinner party.
The magazine, Hobby Farm Home is only available in American as far as I'm aware and so if you live in that land of plenty and would like to make your own cover, you can pick up a copy of the May/June issue in the shops now.
For those of you in other parts of the world, I don't think the magazine is available online unfortunately, but the good news is you don't have to miss out entirely. I also made a little pot holder to match the casserole cover and the instructions to make that are online.
I hope you enjoy the tutorials if you try them, in the meantime, I'm going to go and see if I can calm down. Excited jigs take it out of you!
