Well, I wanted to show you the man bag I'm making for hubby for yule but since the needle broke on the sewing machine and I haven't got any spare ones, I'll just have to show you my cake I managed to get made yesterday. Apologies for the blurry picture but I was just wrapping it when I realised I needed a piccie.
Grrr again to the bag/needle thing :o(. I was just putting it all together when the needle went. I can't even get to the main town where I can get a new one. The snow is gorgeous but we can't get out of the village in the van because the roads are impassable, which means we have no mail coming in either, no veg box, the shops in the next town are all out of milk, no public transport (buses or trains). This has turned into a huge moan which I didn't intend, and the thing that is pissing me off the most is the bloody needle!!!!

lol, loved your little rant, hope you get the needle sorted soon, does anyone local use a sewing machine that you can borrow one off until you can get to the shops?

Yep, that would be annoying all right!! Sounds like you are REALLY cut off up there! DH says that it is going to come mild this weekend, so maybe you'll be out and about then! xxxx

Gorgeous looking cake though ;o) The snow really is a nightmare in disguise. My dh has gone off to the train station walking on sheet ice this morning and I haven't a clue how I'll get to the bookshop tomorrow for work?? Hoping our veg man can get here today... xxx

I don't like eatinbg fruit cake, but that does look gorgeous, my Mom's the fruit cake maker in our family.

I feel your pain with the needle - they always break at the most inconvenient times. Hopefully you won't be cut off for too long to get the replacement from the shop or by post.

Go eat some cake, that will make everything better ;-) xxx
