I had a nice comment left by Sheila, who it seems, is in my neck of the woods, amazing how blogland can bring people together who would otherwise never know they were there. Still not sure of the protocol of answering comments, so sorry if I have neglected anyone and thank you for your comments.
Yesterday I received a surprise, DH went to the post, his second outing since his adventure and when he returned there was a package from Australia. Well I really don't know how, but with all the curfuffal of the last two weeks I had completely forgotten that Judith had awarded me a prize for the number of gifts completed in her Early Bird Christmas crafting. This is what I received, isn't it pretty?
I finished my bird cage from Alli, little difficult to see but I added two colours of seed beads as flower buds. DH assures me that if we double click on the piccie it will enlarge when its uploaded, ok, we'll see. I finished the stitching part whilst waiting in the hospital with DH to see theconsultant who was running 55 mins late, so whilst I did receive some funny looks at least I was spared watching a spot on the wall for an hour.
DH decided to go flying with his radio controlled model planes this morning, so I decided to do a little baking. I tried a spinach and bacon quiche with a little goats cheese sprinkled on it, made many quiches before in previous years but never tried it with soya milk. We have an intolerance to dairy produce so have to either go without or substitute and hope for the best. Pleased to say that the soya mik behaved very well and the usual sweetness did not come through in the quiche, so bouyed by this I made fruit pies and a chocolate mayo cake, although that's for tomorrow when we host this months miniature club. Will have to be up early to put the frosting on.
