RAK, WIP, Cake!

Hi Everyone,

Well it's a bitterly cold blustery day today which I spent out and about taking Lottie to speech therapy and for a hearing test. All was ok and ST don't want to see her until May now and she won't have to go back to audiology either. We did go to a friends for lunch wich was lovely, so nice to have a catch up.

I got home to a lovely surprise parcel from Laura full of fabric for my hexagon quilt and some charms too. Lucky, lucky me! Thank you Laura!

I've been having a rest from the blackwork sampler and working on a little freebie as part of the Monthy Freebie challenge on Needlecraft Haven. I've changed the dates and the initals so it can become an anniversary gift for hubby in June for our 10th wedding anniversary. I didn't ever get round to stitching a wedding sampler so this one will become it.

The kids and I made some crispy cakes yesterday from a recipe which I think is an Annabel Karmel one. I got it from a friend yesterday and they were yum. These are white chocolate and apricot ones.

Last week Thomas met the author Shoo Rayner at school and had one of his books signed. Very exciting for him!

I posted my exchange card to McKenna on Monday so I can reveal that sometime next week along with the little handmade bits I put in the parcels to the winners of my giveaway.

McKenna is having another giveaway for the cutest valentines octopus you can enter to win it here.

So until next time...
