It's WOYWW? again and this was what was on my desk this morning. It's the college holidays here and I'm having to share computer time with my son so hence the late posting. It does mean that more attention is being given to chores around the house this week rather than sitting at the computer. The ironing basket is almost empty and that doesn't happen very often.
Elaine and her partner have been invited to a wedding at the end of the month and she has been asked to make tablet for the table favours. It's my friend's mum's recipe from a local W.I. book that we use. We usually make this as a Christmas treat but Elaine had made some for Andy on Valentines day and I think he'd jokingly suggested that she could make it for his friends' wedding when they were making all their arrangements. It's a small wedding so only thirty-five favour boxes are needed so she's agreed to do it and has bought lovely boxes from John Lewis to put it in. We've discovered that ATC bags are ideal liners for the boxes. She wanted a bow on the box to match the colour scheme of the day which is Cadbury's chocolate purple for the bridesmaids dresses and hunting stewart tartan for the men. Guess who got roped in to doing bunny rabbit ear bows for the boxes. We couldn't get the correct tartan so have opted for a green and purple mix.
I've also been honoured with the task of making a wedding card for them to give the happy couple so I've got that lovely Elegant shoe template from Coppernob out again. It has been well used this year but this is the first wedding card I've made. Not sure how this one is going to go yet but would like to add a scottish flavour of some sort to it and have even found some thistles amongst my stash.
Hope everyone has a good crafting week and I look forward to visiting all the desks to see what you're all up to.
Thanks for reading
PS Ooops... have amended this posting as the original wording suggested that thirty-five lots of tablet were needed to be made instead of enough tablet to fill thirty-five little boxes. It's not such a big task as I first misled you to think.
