In the kitchen:
I make all our jam and much of our chutney, piccalilli and pickled veg.
Bread is made from scratch (no machines involved!).
I often make yogurt.
I don't remember the last time I bought ready-made soup, as that's another on my list.
I've recently tried making soft cheese, which was pretty successful.
Cakes, pies, pastries and biscuits are all my own, too.

Around the house:
I make all our soft furnishings - curtains, cushions, duvet covers.
Do all my own decorating.
Paint occasional watercolours (I'm not very good - yet!) and frame them.
Make Christmas cards and gift tags.
Make bunting from scraps of material.
Occasional knitting, crochet and dressmaking.

Is that enough do you think?
