Blogtoberfest: Bells made me

(and yes, Mum, I probably would put my head in an oven if Bells told me, because she wouldn't lead me astray!)

So I've got a bit of spare time on my hands over the next couple of weeks, and as Kylie has a bit less free time, Bells suggested we should tag-team on the blogtoberfest thing, and it didn't take much to convince me. Yesterday was day 1 for me, and I sat down tonight and made a list of blog ideas for the rest of the month - and surprisingly, it was quite easy!! Let's see how the actual writing of the posts goes!

I almost thought I wasn't going to make it today, husby has been monopolising the internets - but here I am, just in time! And because a post is much better with a photo or two, here's my first instalment for Bells' Long Lacy Summer completely casual KAL:
Doesn't look very lacy but I'm hoping blocking will open it out nicely.

And here are some sweeties I couldn't resist buying today on our way home from the city - Babycakes! Jaffa chocolate, banana, caramel, white chocolate, mint chocolate and peanut chocolate slide (or something...)
Perfect for today - eaten whilst thinking of Amy and lovely Grace!

OMG! Look at those cakes! Why is it that nowhere in the UK seems to make things like that!

Donna Lee said...

It's almost lunch time and now I want to ditch my yogurt and granola and go find a good bakery. And the baby is so precious!

Alwen said...

Oh, yum, both the cakes and the lace!

Even the plate is pretty.

Bells said...

oh the power I wield! What else could I make you do? Your mum should rest assured I like you too much to make you stick your head in an oven.

And welcome aboard. I'm so happy to see you doing Blogtoberfest! And with such style and colour - shawls and baby cakes. All fabulous.

Bells said...

i came back to look at teh shawl again. I hope you have it done by the time I see you on Saturday. I just love it. Am wearing mine right now.

I am amazed at how quickly you and Bells whip these things out. The colors are stunning; beautiful work.

The lace is looking really good. I'm chaffing at the bit to get started, but my yarn hasn't arrived yet. Grrrrr. Little cakes look good too. Yum.

So it works both ways?! Cos I heard a rumour that a certain someone bought a pretty something because a certain you-know-who made her!

BTW My word verification was 'indabin' - I hopa that'sa no reflection on da quality of my commenta!!
