Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx

You can tell it is November and the run up to Christmas by the rate at which I am stitching - very fast!!! It is always my busiest time of year trying to finish presents in time for Christmas. These are two projects I finished at the weekend and I am pleased with them! Although the strawberry fields one is very out of season, I love the strawberries and little white flowers. Still plenty more stitching to do before Christmas though! With the Good Food Show Live next week, several trips to Germany before Christmas and New Moon coming out at the cinema this weekend (we have already booked tickets for Friday and Saturday - with my friend Maren flying over from Germany to watch - a definite Twi-Hard Fan) I may still end up finishing stitching on Christmas Eve as usual!

Love your stitching - so pretty. I too am looking forward to New Moon. I couldn't put the books down and can't wait to see the film. Enjoy! X

Beautiful stitchery Hannah! Oh how I wish I had more time to do things like this. I miss it. I loved the first film and I have read all the books. I can't wait to see New Moon!
