Forgive me for…

…it has been two weeks since my last post, but on the other hand I did do three in the space of two days – am I forgiven? Winking smile

So what’s been happening? The trouble is when I go so long between posts I forget what I’ve been doing and what’s been going on. Work is still work – more of the same really so I won’t bore you with that, other than to say it’s been punctuated with cake wars! For the last three Monday’s I’ve taken cake in, I don’t know how long I can continue with it though! Here’s last week’s effort which I must say after 30 plus years of baking was probably my best ever Victoria sandwich cake – even though I may have over filled it somewhat!

In other news…I’ve carried on with the quilt, I quilted it last weekend but am not over happy with the result – I may ‘frog’ it (just the quilting) and start again, but then again I may not!

Today I’ve been to the Quilt Fair at Chilford Hall in Cambridgeshire, which is the next county to the west of Suffolk. Originally I was going with the friend that I call Julie (I know that’s getting a bit old hat now, but she really does like it when I refer to her as that!!) but unfortunately she had a lame excuse that her brother was fitting a new bathroom for her and she needed to be at home in case he needed her to hoist the bath into position for him Winking smile. When John sensed my bitter disappointment, he gamely volunteered to come with me – ah bless him. At his instruction I now have to say what a wonderfully loving husband he is and thank him for giving up the opportunity to spend a day geo-caching. I half expected that he would have his stuff in the car and say ‘oh look, I’ve just remembered the GPS is in the boot’ but he didn’t – although he had looked up the area for caches and told me there were five nearby!!

So, now I whetted your appetite, do you want to know what I bought? Do you? Well that’s a shame because I’m afraid you’ll have to wait until tomorrow – I need to take photos and it’s too late now!

Watch this space!


  1. I would've come with you too Heather - just to keep you company - but I keep thinking about all the money I've saved by staying at home!!!

  2. Oh Nicola, and I spent far too much in Ipswich today because she wasn't there to keep an eye on me!
