What I've been doing the last week!

Hello, hello hello - yep I am still here - just been really busy in the studio the last week painting a couple of big Bobbin orders... last Friday I was baking cakes -a recipe a friend gave me for a packet mix cake plus you add a packet instant whip pudding mix and a cup of lemonade - a really moist cake ....I did a chocolate one (duh! of course) and a Raspberry Swirl one! to take on Saturday which was the West Australian Lace Guild day and the group I go to - (Lacecargot) were the hostesses ... so I went armed with 1/2 of each of the 2 cakes ( had to leave the other cake halves for the piglets in this house!) and a large plate of mixed sandwiches.... It was a great day even though it was a bit rainy we had around 24 people there (which is about the maximum for the room we were in anyway!).
Sunday I was madly painting the bobbin orders (after the 1 1/2 hour morning ironing session yik!) then yesterday I was bill paying and then bobbin painting and cleaning (double yik!) the house as today it was my turn to hostess the little quilt group which I belong to. I did manage to do a bit of the hemming stitching on my Kanthas quilt today (pics soon) and last Saturday I did get to carry on with the needlelace Nefertiti and YAY! I finished it in the evening that day - it is "off the needlelace pad" now and waiting to be mounted and put together as a neck purse for me to wear at this Septembers Aus Lace Guild AGM conference (also pics soon)- I have been taking pics of it as it has been worked. Well am pooped so bye for now :-D
