Evening lovely friends. I hope I find you all well today, better than the weather anyway. It's been showery and cool here all day but that's been OK as I didn't need the temptation to be in the garden as you will see from my workdesk this week.
I've spent the day decorating a 11" chocolate cake for a lady whose FIL is celebrating his 90th Birthday on Friday. Luckily she chose the same design as I made for my friend Sylvia last year so I knew what I was doing. It still took most of the day though. I made the cake yesterday and it's a good job no one could see me, have you ever tried whisking 15 egg whites. My bowl wasn't big enough and it was like a volcano. Still alls well that ends well and the cake is all boxed ready to be delivered tomorrow, I just hope she likes it.
It's been an exciting week with all the delights of the 2nd Anniversary pif and I'd just like to say a huge thank you to our esteemed leader Julia, the head of team WOYWW who not only gets all these wonderful people together every week but also suggested the pif and it's a huge credit to her that everyone took part so enthusiastically.
I was absolutely delighted to receive mine on Monday from the very talented Laura. She said she was on tenterhooks to know whether I would like it or not. She needn't have worried.
Not only is it beautiful but so useful especially to someone like me who has a memory like a sieve. I've been showing it to everyone and it now has pride of place in my craft room so that I can jot down everything I need to remember and I'll think of Laura everytime I use it.
It's been so nice to make two new friends this week as I also had the pleasure of sending my pif to the lovely Lisa-Jane.
This is what I sent her and the eagle eyed among you may recognise it from The Stampman challenge the other week. While I was messy with inks and embossing powder and happy with what I was making I made two hangers, just changing the wording on this one. I was quite nervous about posting it off too, hoping it would be OK but I'm pleased to say Lisa-Jane says she loves it, phew!!
Thanks, as always, for stopping by and for the lovely comments you leave, I really do appreciate them. You are a wonderful bunch of friends.
