Home Start Cake

Haven't shown you a cake lately - probably because I haven't done one for a while. But here's one that was collected yesterday. Not sure about it myself - I don't like pale blue and red together and I think children should be children colour, not blue. But hey ho, if that's what the lady wants, then that's what I do. She seemed pleased enough though, so that's all that matters.

The squares are coming in very slowly. And now that dear old Royal Mail are on strike again, they'll be at a standstill until the middle of next week at least. Mum came over yesterday and knitted me a couple and I've been told of some others that are knitted but not sent. Hoping to get them soon so I can start sewing up! And on that subject, I've had the kind offer of help from a couple of people, so if I get inundated Kerrie and Marianne, I'll bribe you over with the offer of some cake (if not chocolate, then what do you fancy M?)

I've knitted a couple but they are not a patch on Vera's! Do you think she will be able to tell me how she did hers?

And you wonder why I'd want to be you on cake delivery day?! Just LOOK at the joy you create!

ps: robbed a 5'er from one of the nuns today - I'll have to put her name in the drawing though (I need all the help I can get if I want to go to heaven.)

I have a square here from my daughter and will get knitting myself this weekend. The postal strike is such bad timing for you! when is your deadline? I am heading east towards the end of the month and could hand-deliver?

Ha ha, I'm glad to hear that Vera is settling in so well. Brandy hey? Can't say I've ever been that keen myself, but we all have to find our own way on our drinking adventures :)
