A Baker’s Pantry

Shelves have been installed in Fierro’s back room! The process of filling them up took an afternoon… ….but it’s definitely worth it! It’s quite the baker’s pantry of flavours and decorations – I imagine the bulk bins of things like oats and yeast and such are on the wall behind the camera. We also mounted…… Continue reading A Baker’s Pantry

Summer Garland

After however-many-years, I have finally made myself a summery garland! There’s a bit of a mix of beach-related things and flowers/foliage on there, which is just about right. Peach shell, sunflower, and sun designs by Steffi Glaves And I found a permanent place for Bubbles, too. I did have Bubbles sitting on my desk prior…… Continue reading Summer Garland

January: February: March: April: May: June: July: August: September: October: November: December Last year, I said I wanted to make some more life-sized things, continue exploring…… Continue reading 2021: Year in Review

Multipurpose Aprons

Inevitably, with baking (and running a business), messes happen. Fierro’s got some aprons today, so Hazel’s clothes won’t be permanently stained by anything. I spent ages trying to work out how to get the gathering attached to the top half, and this solution doesn’t look too bad once it’s on. There are no pockets, but…… Continue reading Multipurpose Aprons
