Oh! Your cupcakes are so very cute. I did recognise them straightaway as Sarah's - aren't her supplies just the cutest?


The bag looks awesome, those colours, yummy!

I had no idea a Christmas Cake needs cognac to get it’s excellent taste. Thanks for the link to the recipe!

Take care, eat well and enjoy your sweet knitting project!


I love all your crafty makings--the cake and the cupcake ornaments. Happy week to you TRacy! xoxo

Oh you have been busy!!

How perfect to bake an English X-mas cake after your trip to London?

Also, love your new photo!


My oh my, you have been busy. Love the bag and the Christmas Cake look so yummy. I am glad you are feeling better. Your new hair cut is so cute!


Tracy - you're beautiful! Your new haircut is totally becoming on you!!! I'm glad you're feeling better. I had an iron deficiency about 15 years ago and had to take supplements in a pill form; I would SO much have preferred to take it in a natural form!

Your creations are all so lovely. You've certainly been a busy lady! ;) xo


loving the new hairdo. ten years younger!!!


I agree! The haircut is adorable :)

And of course you know that the bag is PERFECT! I'm so excited!!!


That certainly was a productive blog break. The bag is elegant, and the cupcakes the cutest. Hmm, now I am contemplating making a Christmas cake (never quite got around to making one) ... also my Christmas pudding needs to be made. ahh! Yes, your new look is most becoming. Cheers

Im loving that gorgeous bag and those soo adorable cupcakes!! The yarn colors are soo gorgeous and sweet! Love it. :) Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!


Oh, I think Willow's going to love that bag. I love seeing your eye for detail in every stitch. Hope the new eating/iron regimen will help you soon.


Tracy, I'm so sorry that I've missed so much this past couple of weeks. I'm sending you lots of good wishes that your health concerns clear up quickly. I love your new haircut!!!

Your recent creations are wonderful. The knitting project is so pretty!

How lovely is your post.
The bag is exquisite (I didn't know you took orders) and I know I would love one. You probably have lots of orders to fill, so perhaps I'll wait.
Sending you lots of love and hugs and to tell you I do love your haircut.

Hi Tracy!

What a lovely bag! I'm sure Willow will get many compliments on it!
I also love the darling cupcakes! They would look so pretty on a kitchen Christmas tree! Your knitting colors are so sweet & light..that will be beautiful!

My sister-in-law was born in Ireland and her family there often send her an Irish version of this fruitcake. It is covered with marzipan and then a stiff icing. It is delicious! A little piece goes a long way but it keeps beautifully.

Tracy ..."mangia, mangia," as my Italian mother-in-law used to say!!

Ah, warms my heart!!!! So happy and keeping my fingers crossed that you love the cake ~ you are early as I generally make mine the weekend of Thanksgiving but I'm laying in supplies now :)))

I saw what you put in your last post about your iron deficiency and I've thought a lot about your hair the past week and I seem to recall that you are a vegetarian? We don't eat a lot of red meat but I think some is good for you. Also I love sauteed swiss chard (olive oil, little water, garlic, sea salt) and that I think has tons of iron....

Love Willows bag ~ she's just around the corner from me you know (practically).

Well one can see you really have been productive while you've been away. Very nice. The cupcakes are so cute!


Wonderful haircut! It is uplifting!

The cupcakes are super sweet! Your nieces & nephews will adore them! They'd make great Xmas tree decorations too!


What lovely makes and bakes. Your cake looks just like a traditional English one -not even burnt on top (always a danger with the slow low heat) so brilliant job.

Your bag turned out very well- great colour scheme. I can just imagine the cup cakes being oooed at by your neices and nephews.

The lace knitting pattern looks great. I wonder what it will be?


Your cupcakes look very yummy indeed. Felt is so much fun to play with. It looks like you're taking the time to do some very FUN projects. (And by the way, love your new profile picture! That's a great hairstyle).


Doesn't this cake look scrumptious! :) I love, love the bag as well... You have been happily busy, and that is wonderful to read as always!

I am glad that things are looking up for you... Love and big hugs!! :)


Wow, Tracy! I love the purse you made!!! It is so pretty. I'm so glad you're finding some solutions to the physical issues you were facing. I pray that the supplements and diet changes will help you! <3


Oh that bag is so beautiful & the little cupcakes are just too cute.
Mmmmmmm Christmas cake I love Christmas cake, we have it with a slice of crumbly white cheese in our family & it is delicious!
I really hope you are feeling better Tracy & that the supplement is working.
You look so so pretty in your new photo.
Sending you lots of love


I love this tote. I love, love, love it!! I seem to be having trouble blogging every day and visiting all my friends. Still, I did want to come and say hello. Happy end of fall, my friend.
