Now for something completely different...

Seeing as we're hosting Christmas for the family this year, I though it only right that I bake a Christmas cake. Naturally, I included twice the brandy demanded by the recipe and it's now in the oven... for four hours!

On the craft front, there's a charity craft fair coming up in Glossop that Alex and me are attending. I'm planning to make at least three lamps for the event, possibly with new designs (there are only so many Koi a man can cut out!).

This time I will post pics of the progress, of the lamps and the cake if it turns out any good!

You can check out the Craft Fair details on the short video featured here:

Despite promising to update the progress of the Craft Expo piece, I haven't blogged for ages. Trips to London and casualty have bookended my crafting of late and it has been difficult enough to progress my projects, never mind photograph and post them.

Today though, I'm bursting with enthusiasm again after the opening night of the village Craft Exhibition. A great time was had by all and it was great to chat with such a talented bunch... it must be something in the water!

Many thanks also to everyone who's expressed an interest in my work and even owning it! I'll always love putting stuff together in the 'Cludgie' but your interest and kind words are the icing on my crafty cake! Thank you.

Oh, just in case anyone's wondering how the exhibition project turned out, here are the pics...

 ps. anyone who attended the event and would like something from me, 'local' discounts are available!
