I'm sorry, it's been a little while but I've been very busy in the background preparing for...
and Father Christmas has also asked me to help arrange gifts for a couple of very good little boys. Before I could pause for thought, I spotted it's been over a week since my last post!
I've been crafting away and generally trying to keep warm - I've Iced two of the four Christmas Cakes, the first of which has already been eaten (partly) by the lovely Ladies from the Butterfly Garden Knitters group when we had a festive Bring and Buy recently, I brought and I bought. I'm always astonished by how well these Yarn BABs go, what I couldn't bring myself to knit with ever again someone else snapped up and already had a project in mind.
We raised in excess of £230 for the Butterfly Garden at Dundry Nurseries - a superb effort by all for a great local cause - they're hoping to build a new classroom on site with disabled access, convenience facilities and more space generally.
Marzipan, Midnight Blue Fondant and Simple White Snowflakes - think my next two cakes will have simple coverings too, I'm struggling to come up with a modelling idea that really strikes me - any and all suggestions warmly welcomed!
