A cake interrupts WIP Week


So last night I was supposed to be ironing, decorating a cake and knitting some of yesterday's WIP. But I got side tracked as I so often do and ended up not ironing or knitting. Had to finish the cake though. This is going to be a raffle prize for my mum to give to their local church - all ready to have a suitable message iced on the top just in case the winner wants it for a special occasion. (Mustn't forget to put ribbon round the board)

But the real reason that I didn't get much of anything done was that I blog browsed. I spend too much time on this machine as it is and can ill afford to spend hours 'playing'. But play I did last night and amongst many other blogs, I found this absolute gem. What a lovely thing to read, and what beautiful photos. The pictures of the gin yesterday made me run to the cupboard and pour myself one (sadly no lime though Mrs Magpie).

So let me know will you, have you found any new blogs out there lately - new to you that is? And isn't it about time we all started up a petition to Monkee Maker to come back soon? She's had long enough off!

One ticket please - if I win I'd ask that you take it to my dear old Auntie in Crewe (Cheshire)...

ps: just made a comment about MM on VC's blog

Thank you muchly for that very kind recommendation.

I am horrified to think that I might have distracted you from such a Work of Art. It is too much responsibility

Glad to meet you!

De-lurking (again!) to say that the cake is stunning. One of the most amazing ones you have made. You can see you were allowed to get on with it without anyone telling you what to do! If you are looking for new blogs, then please feel free to come over and visit mine :) I need some visitors - it's getting a bit lonely over here:

I found a new blog recently, after someone sent me a picture of someone's beautiful dyed wool. Tracing the path backward, we learned it came from http://www.purplejenknits.blogspot.com/

I love that cake. That's my favourite so far for sure. You really are very talented. Keep sharing them and the other lovely goodies with us won't you. Life can't be all textiles.

What a beautiful cake, you truly are an artist. What sort of cake was it (Fruit, plain etc?)

I am saying hi from Canada, and would love it if you would pop in and say a quick hello over at my blog :0)
