Whoopie Cakes

Little sponge cakes, sandwiched together with marshmallow cream, decorated with sprinkles.
Recipe from Sainsbury's; mine don't look quite so perfect though!

Birthday card for an Auntie

It seems to have been a long time since I made any cards!
This is one for my husband's auntie. 
The bear picture is stamped, then watercoloured.The letter "J" is her first initial.
The papers are some I got free with a magazine a very, very long time ago. I'm pleased they came in useful eventually! The ribbons are plundered from my extensive stash.

My Wool Stash

Excuse the funny camera angle; I had to stand on a step to fit it all in one picture.
I think I have enough here to knit for years, and this picture doesn't include any wool which belongs to a work in progress.

WIP include a stripey cotton cardigan, zig zag cushion, cotton vest, crochet blanket, waistcoat, fairy, several scarves and a sock.

So why am I compelled to buy more yarn?

Dandelion Cordial

An election day vintage because we collected the dandelions on the way to the polling station!
It is very delicious, you can find the recipe on Dawn's blog Raising Seedlings.
