Last year when Emma visited a friend's daughter joined us on a few of the days and the two got along very nicely. We borrowed her again this year and yesterday morning the three of us made slippers. It took a bit of fiddling to enlarge the pattern to the right sizes for them but once that was done these were a breeze to put together. I may have to do a pair for myself because they'd be great for traveling as they fold up quite flat. I used remnants of flannel and fleece. On the top we put the fleece on the outside and on the bottom we put the flannel on the outside thinking it would be a bit more hard-wearing and the fleece would make for a cushy insole.
It was Jason's birthday yesterday so the girls helped me make a peanut butter tart and we arranged his gifts on the bed awaiting his return from work. I love peanut butter but I'm not a tremendous fan of peanut butter desserts however, I have to say this one was really delicious. It's great for summer since it's a custard and you don't have to heat up the house with baking.
