How to make bobbins

If you don´t have the opportunity to buy bobbins you can make them yourself at home.
I used to create these homemade bobbins out of old, unused markers and pencils.Cut off both ends of the pencil, apply glue to a long, thin strip of paper and tightly wrap it around one end of the pencil, for the other end you wrap about a third of the pencil using either wider strips of paper, or string.Coat the paper/string in glue and let it dry for a day or two, so they harden.

You can read a post HERE about how to make a bobbin lace pillow.

The winner yeast dough with me

It is a winner dough with me. My family always finishes all of it in a few hours. This is a very easy to do yeast dough, but if you're on a diet
and want to keep a slim figure, then you might as well stop reading.

What you need:
1/cup of milk, luke warm 
1 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 teaspoon of sugar
1  cup of flour
1  egg (separate the white and the yolkroom temperature
3 tablespoons of unsalted softened butter

Mix the milk, sugar and yeast in a bowlLeave it in a warm place 
until bubbly, (10 - 15 minutes.)
Put the flour into a bowl and make a well.Next, we have put the 
egg yolk and the yeast mixture we made into the well.
Mix all the ingredients we made into a soft dough. Move the mix  onto a floured surface and kneed briefly until smooth.  
Don't put the dough away to rise, but instead roll it out it a thin as much as you can.Sprinkle flour onto your board to make it easier 
to roll. 

   brushed with ketchup, and topped with  pepperoni and cheese and rolled.

 one roll is filled  witch  a sweetened quark raisins 
 and the other with a grated apple mixed with a sweetened cocoa powder.

I used the same dough  not as a roll  just a pie filled with plum jam and sliced plum (no added sugar)

Don´t forget before baking brush the top with beaten egg white. 
Hope you enjoy :)

Inspired with KALOCSAI

When I'm looking for an inspiration for decorating eggs I often look for embroidery designs.With these Easter eggs I was inspired by a beautiful embroidery pattern called "Kalocsai". This beautiful embroider is even worn by many world-famous celebrities, like Iker Casillas - Real Madrid's goalkeeper, F1 McLarren members Lewis Hamilton and Jesen Button. Even Nicole  Kidman was recently spotted in a beautiful dress with the Kalocsai embroidery.

 More about Kalocsai on Wikipedia HERE.

Easter eggs painted etched and dotted

I'm sorry that I haven't posted anything in a long while, but my full attention was spent on Easter. Since I'm still very busy, I won't be able to post any new patterns, but in the meanwhile, I'll post an old pattern of mine that I haven't published on the internet yet.
