Hello! I am in a less petulant frame of mind this morning(1.26am!) Not feeling so tired now I have retired so I am still awake and have been browsing my old blogs and finding some of yours that I had "lost".Here are my Christmas decorations and I am quite pleased with my snowflake Christmas cake.....

Hi there a happy weekend to one and all.Last week I made a cake for the "bake off" at our WI meeting.It was a traditional Victoria sponge filled with my own homemade blackberry jam,berries picked from my garden.I decorated it with marzipan bees and a hive to represent our campaigns,and a keep Britain tidy marzipan litter bin and a little bit of knitting done on cocktail sticks!The band around it I crotched and embroidered 100 years onto mini bunting,to celebrate our centinary year.Lastly it was on a board covered with the music Jerusalem that I downloaded from my computor AND ta dah!I won 1st prize!! I was so amazed as I thought my efforts were quite naive!!My prize was tea for two at the Vintage tearoom in our town,Chesterfield.It happens to be my favourite tearoom so a double delight!!I shall take my elder daughter Laura Jo with me as we attend the WI together!
