Project: Elongating Old Toddler Coat :)

My girl has got a coat that she has been wearing for the past two years and simply refuses to say "goodbye" to it :) It was getting too short on her arms and general length.. I must have been thinking about it, because last week I had a dream of her wearing this coat with some fur attached to the bottom of it, the sleeves extended and a lovely foxy hat matching it. So following my dream I went to a haberdashery shop, got some fake fur and done exactly what I saw in the dream :) I also made a little hand warmer to go on her neck as she refuses to wear gloves and then complains about cold hands :D 

Coat before alterations :)

Beetroot Muffins :)

Rainy days call for some different activities and last week we found a lovely beetroot muffin recipe that we thought we should try out :) 
I wouldn't say the muffins were particularly tasty, but the process of making them was great fun and it seems we have another beetroot lover in the family :)
