Lots of baking going on at the moment, at home and at work. A PTA stall to be stocked, two student birthdays and a fundraiser all on the go. This cherry cake, from Jane Brocket's Vintage Cakes again, is for eating at home. We need a bit of carb to cope with the cold, wet, dark and miserable weather. At least the roof is mended now, following some particularly gusty days last week.
I have some things to show you, when there's enough light to take decent pictures that is. I don't like using the flash, mainly because I don't have the finesse to bounce the light or whatever it is people do. I could learn, but I don't particularly want to. So you get crappy, grainy shots that I could pretend were meant to look like that... let's face it you can spend good money on an app to get the distressed look and I can do it for free.
I haven't made anything with the yarn I spun yet, and I also haven't had any overwhelming desire to do any more spinning. Which is a bit of a relief in a way, but it was nice to try something new and meet some really interesting people. I'm not sayng I won't ever do it again, but I can't see my efforts competing with Rowan any day soon. Although I was watching some drop spindle videos on Youtube, now that looks quite soothing...
