It's Blooming Lovely!!

I want to show the evidence of my labours in the kitchen on Saturday, partly to explain the absence of stitching. Here we have 12 lemon and almond muffins, 14 bread rolls and about 40 ginger biscuits.

And, as promised, here is are some photos of Mothering Sunday goodness. This is the little primula from the church service. Here's the beautiful, colourful bouquet from my daughter and finally the the deliciously scented candles from my son. The flowers are sitting in the porch window along with the primula and the carnations my OH bought to welcome me back from my weekend away last week (top photo), so it's a veritable florists in there at the moment!

Despite a shaky start, it'll soon be the second anniversary of this little bloggy offering. Therefore, I'm planning to have a giveaway as a 'thank you' to all you lovely people who keep popping in and commenting, giving me the motivation and encouragement to keep going. I made a tentative start with my first post on 17 april 2008 but didn't really get going with it until a year later. I enjoy sharing these little snippets of life with you and, despite there not being much stitching evidence, I usually have something newsworthy to post about (I hope!). I don't know what I'm going to include in the giveaway yet. All I've decided so far is that there will be something I've made and something sweet and tasty!!

I'll keep you posted.
Bye for now

Would I say happy Mothering Day or happy Mother's Day? In the states it would be the later but I want to get it right. :) Yankee Candles are some of my favorite and I love your cheerful blooms and delicious looking baking. Yum!

Wow Teresa, that is a great pile of baking and I bet your house smells wonderful with all those gorgeous flowers, cakes and candles! Isn't it satisfying to have racks of home baking sitting there - although I bet they didn't last very long!
