Progressing

I have been asked to make a bag. This is to be a raffle prize as a fundraiser for commemoration for the start of the First World War. I am not sure about this whole commemoration thing, but as I believe the money will be put to good use in the community, I am going with it, and pleased to do so. The theme had to be poppies, so I have started by making three dimensional fabric origami poppies to apply to one side of the bag.
 So here is one side of the bag- I shall do a flatter second side, and then consider the insides..
 My kind next door neighbours fed the cat for the weekend, so I have made some cakes for them. There is a secret chocolate heart inside each of these... I think the children will enjoy these.
 And my daughter made some hedgehog biscuits with that lovely cutter I was given. I watched and encouraged and pretended to help! I did help with the eating!
And isn't the colour of this magnificent? A present from another friend! A second flower spike is also coming along.


Meantime, these crocus have appeared in the garden while I wasn't looking, and more mini daffs are out!

Those poppies are comming along a real treat. I love the cakes with a secret heart in them. My daughter (17) cooks just as well as I do but still wants me to "help" her. She really only means "hang out" with her because any constructive imput is always viewed as "critical" input, so I lurk about in the kitchen with her making the coffee.

Great poppies for your bag! Seems you are busy making one way or another.

I love the poppies on the bag. I hope you aren't anywhere near the floods over there.
