Neil’s Maw and Paw were coming for cake and tea last Friday pm so I baked a sponge cake with our hen’s eggs and layered it with our gooseberry jelly and fresh cream, then sprinkled with icing sugar. It went down very well.
Yesterday I spent all day making ‘flooer’ (shetland name for flowers) buttons and stitch markers from polymer clay using slices of clay from the flower canes (think sticks of rock) I’d made previously. These are all laying on ceramic tiles ready for curing. Just trying to boost my stock for a craft fair I’m doing in Tingwall tomorrow. Hope the weather holds and lots of people come.
