Workshop and Cakes!

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

I've have (once again) not been blogging as much as I would have liked to. 'Real life' has been busy, so my 'Internet life' has been put a bit on the back burner. Having said that, I have missed blogging as it does focus my busy life for a brief moment. So what has taken my time? Well the last week in July I attended a 5 day summer school in free style machine embroidery, Tutor Pauline Verrinder. A superb time with 15 like minded creative souls and their sewing machines. I'll write more in detail abut that later. So much to tell......
The summer school was followed by a lovely warm and very sociable weekend with friends. Then I had to do my final preparations for teaching one of my textile groups. We all take turns in teaching and cake baking. I do more teaching than cake baking which is totally fine with me :-) Everything in moderation (kind of :-) but I do love all these home baked, traditional English cakes all baked from scratch that suddenly appears in the tiny kitchen of our village hall where we meet once a month. This one was a moist, sweet, tardy lemon drizzle... beautiful!!!! Such creativity!
I tell you about the workshop I taught in my next blog post. Gotta run, I'm of to make a cake.... :-)
