Both Joyce and Meggie kindly commented that it was better to make chicks than cakes for the Easter Treat Sale at the school on Friday. Sadly, I am not the virtuous woman you think me to be - I made cakes as well. Here they are. Don't know what they tasted like - in truth I just enjoy wrapping them up to look pretty, I'm a big believer in the art of presentation and a sucker for cellophane. The tin sign behind them was a Christmas present from my Mum - isn't it lovely? It also means that I can use some of my ribbons. I get them from a stall that comes to Leicester Market on Saturdays, they are so cheap that I buy them even if I have no immediate use for them - you could call it a ribbon stash.
Haven't had chance to sew much apart from the chicks but will be going away to Wales over Easter so I'm going to take my machine and try to make up for it then. I really want to try the peacock feathers that Tazzie has been using to such good effect instead of just meandering as usual.
And ... the clocks have gone forward, hooray, more light = more productivity. Have a good weekend all.
