It's our Village Show this weekend, and there is a class for men's baking, he's suddenly decided he's going to enter. He has the recipe for a chocolate cake, I've got everything out for him, switched on the oven, lined the cake tins told him the order of things (even though everything is clearly stated). I've left him in the kitchen but he keeps coming in and asking is this right - what do I do now. So keep your fingers crossed that everything goes well, and that the kitchen doesn't burn down. MEN!!
Anyway DH and myself are going to have busy weekend as we are both on the committee so we have to help set it all up, and generally help with everything else. I have to make 2 coffee walnut cakes for the teas, but I'll do that tomorrow. I'll take some photos for you to see, but I think the number of entries will be down because of the dreadful weather this summer.
I have finished this competition piece that June set us in our club, made a little cushion from it. I'm not sure if I like the blue pom poms, too late now they are all sewn on, but I'm getting used to it, and think it is quite cute.
I have finished this other piece, it's a little bag by Polstitchers, they suggest using it for needles, this is the front, followed by the back and when it is open. I enjoyed doing it, but I'm glad it's finished.
I have started cross stitching some little pressies for Christmas, time and tide wait for no man or woman, so I've started. I guess that when I come back from holidays I shall start making Christmas puddings and mincemeat, I don't know if I shall make a Christmas cake or not, but what ever they all need time to mature.
He (DH) has just come in 'can I check the cake is cooked' well it is.It looks and smells good, He just has to get it out of the tins and on to the cooling rack without breaking it!
Back to Christmas, I reckon when I come back next time, I'm coming back as a man at Christmas time, as it is hard work for a woman all the cooking , shopping, cleaning, cards and wrapping presents, or it is in my home. Where did I go wrong?
Thankyou for visiting my blog, love hearing from you, apologies for still not getting the reply bit sorted out yet. Have fun!
