WOYWW 213 – 2 For 1

So here we are at Wednesday again and as you all know by now, it’s the day we share what’s on our work desks. 

You’re getting two for the price of one from me this morning because I have two work spaces to share with you.

The first is my usual desk in my craft room.

It’s not been used for crafting on very much recently but this morning I’ve made a start on some more cards for Jo’s   LillyBo Quilt Project

I’m thrilled for Jo, and amazed at how will her project has taken off and the generosity of everyone who has made quilts, more than one in many cases. 
My contribution has been the little gift cards that Jo is sending out with the quilts and having just received a case full of eleven quilts from Spain which you can read all about  Here , I thought I’d best make some more, otherwise she’ll run out and we can’t have that, can we.
The picture of my second work space was taken at 7.30 this morning when I was baking tiny cupcakes for my Goddaughter’s baby shower that’s being held on Saturday.

Ideally, I would have liked to make all the mini cakes for her afternoon tea on the day but with scones, cupcakes, chocolate éclairs and fruit tarts to make and two dozen of each, it would be too much of a rush for the 1pm start.  So this morning I decided  bake and put them in the freezer for a couple of days, that way I can get them out the night before and  just do the finishing off on the morning.

The picture shows the first batch of Vanilla cupcakes and the tiny Pink flowers that I’ve just cut from some coloured Pink Fondant Icing. The second dozen will be Lemon and Poppy Seed and have Blue Flowers because she doesn’t know what she’s having.
So there you have it!

I have to get back in the kitchen right now but as soon as I’m done I’ll be hopping across to Julia and The Stamping Ground  to see what’s on your desk this week.

Happy Crafting!

You sound very busy this week, Sue. Love the look of that paper pad you have on your desk. Jo's quilts have been brilliant haven't they. I have another one to send her but not made by me I hasten to add. I still have nightmares from making the 2 I did. I'll never be best friends with my sewing machine!!
Your baking sounds delicious.
Thanks for visiting already.

I really thought I'd popped in on you this week Sue. So sorry i'm late. You are a star making more cards for LillyBo, they will be very well received as were all the others you sent. I'm dying to get started on the monkey quilt but first I'll have to do the name labels and tote bags for the 11 quilts from Spain. It's all go here!
Your cakes sound wonderful, what a joy to make them for such an occasion.
Bye for now
Jo x
