I thought I’d show you this gorgeous vintage china cake stand my lovely friend, Jo, gave me for Christmas. She made it herself and it’s so fabulous it makes me want to bake loads of cakes and scones. In fact, I may just have to get some jam and clotted cream at the weekend and have a cream tea, using some of my loose leaf teas from Eteaket (my favourite tea shop).
On the craft front, I’m just beginning to get my motivation back after feeling poorly. We have a craft fair on Sunday and I don’t have as much stock as I’d like, but I’m sure between Lesley, Sigrid and I, we’ll have enough stuff. Progress with my Belle Ruffle wristwarmers has been slow – it’s definitely showing that it has been a long time since I knitted on 5 needles (I think I was 7 or 8 the one and only time I did it, and even then it may only have been 4 needles). I’m now on “take 3”:
It was also my first time knitting on a circular needle, which took a little getting used to. I’m now at the stage where I’m ready to transfer to my 4 needles.
On the fashion front, last week joined Polyvore – OMG what a time sapper that is, but so much fun; I am so looking forward to making new boards, hopefully with some clothes I actually own (and maybe even ones I make, once I learn how to photograph them properly for this). I must limit my time there though, as I am looking forward to making lots of things in the next wee while. I’m off fabric shopping next weekend, so will make something from my Sew What! Skirts book.
I’m looking forward to hearing about everyone’s crafty makes and bakes.
