my creative space - shared

I'm enjoying sharing my creative space this week. A few projects have been completed including this reversible eye mask made by Miss A, and a matching mask for her well loved and faithful friend Moose.

The chocolate brioche are by (aspiring Junior Master Chef) Master D, who wanted to make something 'different and hard'. These weren't too difficult but had a few different stages, some yeast and some rising, and best of all have a square of melted chocolate inside each one. They are perfect for this classic school holiday weather we've been having - wind, cold and rain.

I'm just hoping the wet passes before we hit the road on Sunday. Otherwise I might have to pack a few more creative projects to take along.

The upside though of this rain is that every time I look out the window I see spring springing, and I know this much needed rain will help those little green shoots grow.

More creative spaces, shared and otherwise, here.

(p.s. brioche recipe from Taste but actually I think I prefer the Artisan no knead Brioche recipe I used back here: next time I'd use that for the dough and steal the chocolate bit from Taste! Fussy aren't I!
