This is the cake Naomi made me for Mother's Day. Diet? What diet?
Of course she also managed to dye my chopping board pink and blue, but you can't have everything.
The girls got me some Lush shower gel (Happy Hippy, do you think they are trying to tell me something?) wrapped in a scarf made from recycled Lush bottles too.
No stitchy updates this week, everything I'm working on is secret for now for one reason or another.
I have managed to crochet six whole squares for my blanket, but I'm not sure thats enough for a progress photo.
DH is in disgrace. He needed a needle or pin to unblock a jet on the boiler when I was at work and "Couldn't find any others"
Not, for example, in the large stuffed pincushion or magnetic hedgehog needle minder on my desk either side of the scissor frog.
No, he took the needle from my W.I.P.
He didn't just unthread it either. He got a pair of scissors from the scissor frog (do we remember where that was?) and snipped the thread off to get the needle!

Well, hope he wasn't given cake! Meant to say - do you need a bowl for the frog? It looks nice "as is" Just a thought.

I am sorry that happened to your current WIP. That was so typically male.

Carol said...

That sounds like something my husband would do!!

Hope your Mother's Day was a special one--love the pretty hearts on your cake!

Love the cake Christine, had to smile though at your description of DH and the needle. I expect you said, It doesnt matter dear I have lots more-or words to that effect lol.
What will be the revenge I wonder lol.
