Making Jewellery or Baking?

I thought I would have a break from jewellery making today and wanted to do some baking. I had a free Asda magazine which had some lovely cakes recipes in. My favourite was a recipe for Cherry bakewell slices.

The cake was quite easy to make and to my surprise, tasted absolutely delicious! If you don't have a copy of the March Asda magazine, let me know in the comments below and I will send you the recipe. I thoroughly recommend making this cake.

Can you guess which one is mine?

The next recipe on my 'to make' list is this lovely Banana and pecan cake from the same magazine.

 PS: Yes, you guessed right, mine was the one on the right....

Charming Threads.

My mother in law was clearing her cupboards on the weekend and gave me some old cotton reels. Although I do some sewing every now and then, I'm not sure when I will get a chance to use all these threads. But I had to have them anyway as I think they are really charming and look quite vintage and make great photos. See for yourselves...
