The huge rise in popularity of shows such as ‘The Great British Bake Off’ has seen a resurgence in home baking; it can be as easy or as complicated as you want to make it, from no-bake fridge cakes to the fanciest of iced creations. Healthy eating is also to the forefront of many people’s agendas and with the rise in popularity of cookery programmes on TV and the massive amount of cook books available, the kitchen is the place to be. So why not adorn it with some funky textiles to make the whole baking and cooking experience a lot more enjoyable. These Dotty Sheep from Ulster Weavers are the perfect antidote to a grey dreary winters day in the kitchen.
