Wednesday again, where does the time go?
Desk first:

On my table today we have a small selection of the million Christmas cakes I have to finish, these have been marzipanned and will be iced today and tomorrow, plus I have two more to marzipan. There are a couple of Christmas CDs, you can't Christmas craft without the appropriate music. There's a Mr Ripley book to go back to the library, this one didn't grip me as much as The Talented Mr Ripley. There are two almost finished Christmas trees and a pack of ten thank you cards. Then there's a brown paper bag and a cardboard box containing who knows what?
Would you like to see what's under my table?
My poor rabbit has got cabin fever she's been in the hutch so long so I thought I'd bring her in for a hop. She's doing a lot better than the guinea pig, he died on Tuesday :-( He was almost seven which is ancient in guinea pig terms. RIP Shaggy, reunited with Scooby Doo at last.

This morning was absolutely freezing but it did provide an amazing sky for us to look at whilst my 12 year old scraped the cars!

Time to go mix up a pile of royal icing.
Hop over to Julia's blog to see a wide selection of festive surfaces.


  1. I used to make and decorate my cakes every year and spend so much time fiddling with it to make it perfect, after all it is a stage by stage process. How are you going to decorate the top?

    Love your bunny, ours died many years ago and loved being inside, he was house trained. LOL

    Happy WOYWW

  2. Two lovely ribbony trees, I see - you really must have the patience of Job!! They defeated me...I ended up wanting to stab everybody with the pins, which isn't really in the spirit of Christmas, is it......?
    The cakes are looking good too :)
    I am going to try and use all my stash up in the New Year - have embargoes any more spending on fabric until at last the, when does that start???
