I have now reinstated a baking day. I did get my food certificate recently and have already started baking for Fridays country market. I love the back to basics cooking, seasonal produce and no unnecessary ingredients of what was the W.I. ( I suddenly feel very old!) So here are my recent efforts.
All plastered with icing- just how we like them!
I have also been working on ideas, some christmas - reluctantly. I do love christmas but the run up is getting rediculous.
One very messy workspace, but I do have to have everything out, who am I kidding O.K. a fraction of my stuff out then.
A few little brooch ideas.
And some ideas from last christmases cornish fairy. I love trying to make ideas into 3D so this is based on...
...this one. It's proving very fiddly but interesting, and rather funny from some angles
On Saturday the Piccy Tree that I was helping out on, had its first outing. The town had plenty of stalls, a funfair and a French market. I ended up helping out with my son in the procession holding a banner. The Piccy Trees were so colourful and every banner told a story about the area.
My applique panel and other colourful pieces made at local centres and schools.
We set off from the Liskerret centre (a hub of local activity!)with a fab samba band.
And ended up at the fair!
Also in town were members of the Sealed Knot, demonstating weapons and cooking from the time of the 1600's
A warm welcome at Stuart House (a place where King Charles the I'st stayed)
