Chrissy Sewing...

Geez Christmas is just around the corner and I still have so much to do... 
plus I am going to Perth on Wednesday to pick up my daughter and my MIL... 
do some Christmas shopping as I have done very little and a food shop and I will fit a tidy up at the hairdressers before I head back home as early as I can Friday morning to get home before the heat that day and expected temp of 40...
mug rugs for some footy fans and the mug writing idea off Pinterest...
 another bro-in-law... he is boss at his work.
 I found these in the home ware shop ''Matchbox''
 and made a mug rug to go with them
this one is for my sis-in-law
 and this one for my niece...
 more Christmas cooking
 Peanut Brittle
it is so yummy and morrish that I had to put it away quickly...
recipe as follows
Peanut Brittle
2 cups white sugar
150g unsalted butter
250g salted roasted peanuts
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine the sugar and butter with 1/4cup water in a large heavy based saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir gently until sugar is dissolved. Bring to the boil, then boil rapidly, without stirring for 10 to 15 minutes.
Working quickly pour the mixture onto the prepared tray and tilt to spread out. 
Use a metal spoon to help it spread. Place tray somewhere cool and wait for brittle to set. Shatter into pieces and store in an airtight container.
