Stitching and cake

I have almost finished my Welsh Guards man, the white patch should have a bright light red, but in all my stash, I don't have the colour or anything similar, I had to finish him off, as the pattern had children standing in front of him. I have added a sewing machine, I have never in my adult life not owned a sewing machine. I now want to add other items for Kev and myself, I am really enjoying this project,

I have been baking, we watched Hairy bikers last week and they had a fantastic recipe for a ginger cake, which they said was very moist, so I went to their website and used the recipe, it does not look to great, but it is the best tasting ginger cake we have had. If you want to try, click on the recipe for the link

I have found some seeds for wild strawberries for my garden, I hope to get some plants from this pack below, I will keep them on the corner of my desk, it's the sunniest spot in the house.
I have not alot planned for today, Kev is home so I won't get much done, tonight I'm with my friends, and hope to see how they got on with the small kits I gave them to do, I'm off to spend the day with Fliss and Sammy tomorrow, which is always fun.


  1. Your WIP looks lovely Marlene.

    I could just eat a slice of that ginger cake. It looks delicious.

  2. I love the welsh guardsman and the sewing machine.

    It is looking great! Can't wait to see what you add next :)

    Happy stitching
