And what comes next?

Since finishing my UK Trip Book I have been busy making Suffolk Puffs.   Lots of them.
Well, to be honest, thirty six in total.
And what am I going to do with those?
These will form a Christmas Tree for my friend in Japan who has no space to put up a real tree in her home.   She will put up my tree on her wall and hang small ornaments from it.   Clever don't you think. 
So far so good.   It is hard to place randomly when your mind works mathematically!  
Now I need thirty six large buttons to go in the centre of each puff.   Probably gold ones or failing that bright red and bright green.
A tree trunk, a bucket, gifts around the base, backing, binding.....  
No Margaret!   This is not yet nearly finished.   You still have some way to go ;-)
Now I am off to watch Heston Blumenthal create "the world's greatest Christmas pudding".   That guy is mad.   Mad but interesting!

  2. I've never heard these called Suffolk Puffs before. I know what you mean about the random thing. The harder I try to be random, the more the patterns emerge. How big are the puffs? This is a really good idea!

  3. What a lovely idea! I think it is going to look fabulous when it is done. And what a nice gift for your friend.
