Blogging Kindness!

A couple of weeks ago at an Embroiderer's Guild Regional meeting, I met Sharne. We know each other from pre blogging days when she'd been a student in a couple of my classes. I'd brought some knitting with me and we got chatting about the knitted cake I'd made and Sharne asked if I'd seen the book "Twenty to make - Knitted Cakes." I hadn't, the conversation moved on and I forgot all about it. So imagine how thrilled I was last week when a copy of the book arrived from Sharne - a totally unexpected and wonderful surprise.


Thank you Sharne - I think it's fantastic!


Doughnut anyone?


After the baking fest of last week these calorie free cakes are just what I need. Only another nineteen different cakes to make!

  1. Hi Gina,
    Now those are the sort of cakes I should be looking at!
    saw your bit about OPUS and the V&A. I love that place, I can even pursuade my daughter to go there as she likes the shop and the food! The module you are doing was one of my favourites, really interesting- its just a shame we all feel so disconected at the moment.Hoping to hear more from Winy and co. by the end of this week and at least then we will our purpose back - I hope.

  6. The chocolate gateau looks good enough to eat! Do you think they serve these at half time at Weight Watchers?

  8. So glad you liked the book, you have knitted the doughnuts quickly. I don't mind the knitting, it's the stitching up that gets me!.
