what's on my workdesk - kitchen table

Stuff to bake - that's what



I have cakes and cakes and more cakes to bake.  No time for sewing and knitting. 

Tiny cakes for smallest's playgroup party, small cakes for Small's end of school sale, big cake for friend (may have mentioned that last week but still not made it as she had the audacity to be taken to Barcelona for a birthday surprise - how dare she - and leave us behind - pah!). 

However, cakes aside, I have finished knitting my chickens.  Bless them.  They are now all bagged up and ready to be given to their new homes.


Perching on the bird table


Sitting on the fence




Waiting on the bench


Nestled on a tree stump


Brooding on a branch

My Huffle thinks I am "not all there".  Oh how much fun did I have setting these photos up.  What must the neighbours think??

I think the neighbours would be in awe of your knitting capabilities and trying to summon up the courage to put an order in for a handmade chicken, I know I would. x

Great looking chickens. They are so cute. IF I lived closer I would come to the school sale and buy one. Read the post of the cake decorating. Looks really yummy and looks like they had loads of fun doing it. Thanks for sharing. Vickie
