Red Berries, Pink Scarf, Creamy Tulip and the pattern

1   It has been another beautiful clear skied day with blue skies and bright sunshine though there is still a sharp nip in the air when out of the warmth of the sun.  I love how the sunshine made these (poisonous?) berries of the Laurel glow as if lit from inside.

2   We Skyped with the family contingent who live in Barcelona last week and NM confessed that she had lost her scarf. I have made a new one, as requested in the same chunky pink wool that I used for her cardigan in January.  We posted it this morning.

Grannymar  asked for the pattern to make a beautiful Three Toed Sloth so here is the manufacturer and the pattern number for her and for anyone else who fancies making one of these beautiful woolly creatures!  Here is the link to see my version.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Blur

Here, I have creamed the butter and sugar until almost white and am now incorporating the finely grated rind of two oranges and loads of grated ginger as I make the most Delicious gingerbread ever!  The K beater is doing all the work in a blur of motion.
