How was your Easter weekend? Ours started super busy. Lindsay was asked to organise
the catering for that weekend. Our Church had a Jewish rabbi come a show us a Messianic Passover. Jameil came over last year also, which was good as this year Lindsay & I didn’t get to see any of it. We were running around like little busy little bees in the kitchen cooking for 100 people – no small feat considering we were working out of a small kitchen with only 2 domestic stoves & 1 small sink.
I was so had it by the end of the night. I ached & pained in places I didn’t know you could ache & pain in. Thankfully we had a couple of helpers. Althea cooked all the soup, (as well as serving & generally helping) plus she bought a couple of burners to use which freed up the stove top. Chantel was an angel, she made herself available to do whatever we needed, serve, wash up, cleaning … At the end of the night she took over in the kitchen & made sure everything was cleaned & put away. And of course at the end of the night many people from the church helped generally clean & pack everything away & re-set up the church the Sunday while Lindsay & I were sent home.
It all went well though, everyone had a great time, we didn’t run out of food & no one had to have their stomach pumped 😉
As I promised last week, here is a picture of some of the cookies decorated. I’m very new at decorating cookies. I’m still having some trouble with the cookies spreading – I think I have to turn my oven up just a little more. These turned out a bit better the the last batch but they still spread a bit too much.
I was happy with the colours I got with the royal icing, nice & bright & Eastery. I only have one piping tip that is the right size for decorating, most are too big & the one I used for the pink icing was very small – good for making squiggly lines though 🙂
More Embroidery Wall Art
Papa Owl & Son are all finished & waiting for their photo shoot. I add some heat set rhinestone gems to it for a little extra sparkle!
The Little Peacock is all finished too. She also has some extra sparkle. Not just with the heat set rhinestones, but also from the thread I used. This one is 100% rayon which makes is super shiny & glossy. I also Love the colours in this one.
And lastly ~ a work in progress … I have decided to call this one The Rainbow Tree. I found some variegated embroidery thread the other day. I love the effect it is creating.
Well, I have paperwork to do & a Rainbow Tree to finish. Lindsay is away this week, so I want to try & catch up on a few things.
Have a super week. Bye for now …
Love Mignon & Georgie 🙂
