Making and baking

The start of a planty type embroidery inspired by Melissa‘s freehand stuff.

I was leafing through Notebook magazine and came across photos of Australian native plants. They were beautiful… although I’d have preferred them to be New Zealand natives 😉 Maybe next time.

Tobin has a book of New Zealand flora and fauna (I think?) left to him by his grandma, so I might see if he’ll let me borrow that to inspire some embroidery.

Carroty goodness in cake form. Recipe here. My workmates appreciated it. Hannah asked me to bring her home a slice and I did… she ate the icing and left the rest. Not so happy. Next time I’ll save more for my work buddies and let Hannah lick the icing bowl instead.
