countdown time


The cassata practice run seemed to be successful - so I shall have to make another along with the pav and icecream for Sunday. Ian was just about to hoe into this piece today.

Our red Chinese gates arrived today - there are two of them. They won't be up for a wee while but it rather exciting. Certainly will look different around the side of the house.

My Piece of work is making progress - I have to think about the edges.

Today is the 12th day of the facebook 12 Days of Christmas. It has been going very well and we are thrilled with the response.  Next year I shall be more organised and try to start on time. I was inspired to do it by Tim Holtz' 12 tags of Christmas. They were fabulous - you can always relate them to fibres and textiles and all sorts of mixed media.

Harley coped pretty well with all the visitors last night - she even came and sat outside for a while - just not near us.
Hope everyone's progress so far this week has been good.

My 'to do' list has lots of lovely ticks down it.
That piece of stitchery is looking very good, as does the cassata. I'd be prepared to do a tasting for you!
I shall be busy in the kitchen later this week with another 'to do' list.

I knew there was something else! I love the new gates - they are so striking and will look wonderful.

Hi! Dale,

Your cassata looks quite yummy would love the recipe, I'd like some gates like those got just the spot for them. Your piece of work is gorgeous, especially the colours, i'd not have chosen them, but I will at another time, you always stretch my colour palette.
