Yesterday was the AGM of our branch of the Embroiderers' Guild.
We had a fabulous talk from the very talented Nodeen Salmon whose talents range from the most exquisite counted thread work through to feltmaking, doll making, quilting and amazing machine embroidery, where she achieves the most brilliant painterly effects. Not only is she talented but entertaining and funny too.

Of course being an AGM there was also some business to attend to and more by default than design I appear to have become the Chairman of our branch.
I can't help but detect that for a small (at least I hope it is small) faction of our branch I might not be the most popular choice...

but then they didn't really have a choice because no-one else was prepared to do the job. Having said that I'm not entirely sure why I want to do it either...
Chocolate and Vanilla Marble Cake
But at least I make the members cake!
