We have warmth and dry sunny days here at the moment so I’ve been making the most of it in the garden, getting it neat and tidy for Caoimhe’s Communion this Saturday. All last week I had meetings to go to in the evenings for it and this week sees a lot of the preparation work being done early.
I was asked what was on the menu this Saturday, well its a cold buffet which I like but I’m getting help on some of the dishes as my mum and aunt offered to help, this frees up some time for me to spend on the desserts. Now on the dessert menu there is Strawberry Cheesecake, Banoffee Pie, Dutch Apple Cake and I’m going to make a Mint Cheesecake on a Chocolate Biscuit Base, this I’ve not tried before so will be a resounding sucess or a complete disaster, lets all hope for the former lol.
I promise pictures will be taken of Caoimhe in all her style and of the ceremony and the yummy desserts lol. Next week I hope to bore you all to tears with photos.
IHSW weekend was this past weekend and I got no stitching done. Saturday I had planned to start the fishing but ended up in the dr’s out of serivce with Alan and his finger which was swollen and bruised from basketball the previous day. Him being a child they wanted an xray to make sure none of the small bones were broken, which thankfully they weren’t but a trip to A & E here means several hours and we were just back in time when his friend came over for a play date so there went my Saturday and I was just to tired to stitch that night and on Sunday I knit some more of Ruairi’s sock as I couldn’t summon the energy for stitching. I’m hoping after this weekend I can get back to it.
I did finish the rotation on Hogwarts and have a picture of that for you. (very boring up to this isn’t it picture wise lol). I have finished the black on this first page and am now filling in the rest of the colours.
