Spreading the love

Hey would you just look at this - I've got an award! In fact I got it twice, so I'm doubly excited. Thanks to Samantha and Vicious (don't want to use your full name here Vicious Chicken, it sounds too formal!) (and anyway, 'Vicious' has a certain ring to it don't you think?)

Now apparently I have to spread it around. But I'm going to break the rules and only give it away to one person. Kerrie. You deserve it. You have become my good friend since first you took over Hipknits, kind and generous to a fault. You have donated raffle prizes to good causes at my school, and given supplies for us to use there. You helped me do the stash auctions last year (oops, 2 years ago) and have helped so much with the blankets this year (everyone loved their raffle prizes by the way). You are so like me, always wanting to please and sad when things go awry. We both like chocolate cake, rhubarb, ridiculously weak tea and yarn. You must be my English Internet Twin (even though there's years and years between us).

Oh, I've just thought, Clara is my American Internet Twin. Are we therefore triplets?

aw, thank you! Chocolate cake, rhubard, weak tea and yarn sums me up perfectly! I don't believe there are that many years between us either. I couldnt think of a nicer twin to have and with Clara making it triplets that is just perfect.

Awww shucks! You're making me blush : )

ps: I'm sure Kerrie is being modest about the year count, but we'll let her keep believing!

i am just wondering what you made out of because i have a project with my kids to make a kangaroo and i just want to know what you made yours out of. is it clay? because it looks like it

akhila said...

by the way do you even check your comments? just wondering.

akhila said...

plz answer soon

Yes Akhila, I do check my comments, but I do not live on the computer - I do other things too! If you had left an e-mail address, I would have contacted you. The kangaroo was made out of fondant icing and was then painted using food safe powder colours. The Spitfire is a World War II fighter plane and was also made from fondant using gum tragacanth to harden it up. The wings were strengthened with wire. Hope this helps, and I'm glad you liked them.

It's now 12.45am and I'm going to bed - got to be back up at 6.30. No rest for the wicked is there?
