Let’s Make Christmas,
Make your own Mulled Wine Sachets!
The wonderful thing about being a food blogger/writer is that you get to meet lots of amazing like-minded people online, and, sometimes in person if you are lucky. I follow many blogs and I’m always astonished at the level of creativity and talent that abounds in the food blogosphere. I am also heartened how we all support each other and marvel at the level of passion that is evident in so many posts I read on a daily basis. Vanessa Kimbell started the amazing Let’s Make Christmas bauble rolling and we all rallied to her Let’s Make Christmas idea; this culminated in the official event that was held at Fortnum and Mason last week….what a fabulous event, and I will be writing a post about my experiences a little later this week.
It was at this sparkling event that I met a lovely blogging chum, Kate from Turquoise Lemons; Kate and I are “tweet” friends and both of us got into the spirit of the making Christmas idea in a BIG way……..as you will see if you visit her blog! Kate has only been blogging since August this year, 2011, and has already written some wonderful posts about hats, squirrels, chocolate brownies and many more diverse articles. I have never featured a guest blogger before, but I thought it might be nice for you all to meet Kate and maybe you can pop over when you have finished here and visit her blog ~ PLEASE do tell her I asked you to call by and she may offer you a cuppa and a home-baked Christmas treat!
I asked Kate if I could feature one of her wonderful Christmas recipes and this is the one I have chosen to share with you all ~ a REALLY innovative idea and one that I will be making to add to my home-made Christmas hampers this year ~ I am featuring Kate’s Make your own Mulled Wine Sachets……..
So here they are, and it’s over to Kate now and here is what she has to say about them………
“I absolutely love mulled wine. I always make up my first batch on bonfire night. Lots of my friends love it but aren’t sure what goes in it so I thought I would make up some sachets to go into the food hampers I’m making as gifts this year.
In order to make the teabags I took inspiration from A Beautiful Mess and her lovely tutorial on how to make teabags.
You will need:
Sewing machine and thread
Thicker embroidery thread
Dried orange and lemon
I am entering this as part of Vanessa Kimbell’s Let’s Make Christmas. Do pop along to her blog Prepped and think about entering something yourself….”
Thanks so much for agreeing to be my first guest blogger Kate, I will be back later with more recipes, photos and daily gossip!
