nicolajdodd Tagged by lovely Laura @we.made.this.home who was looking at cake recipes (one of my favourite pastimes!) #widn is getting some drawings together to take to the printers, but I've noticed a rather funny spelling mistake which made me chuckle. Maybe I'll leave it in... 5d

nicolajdodd Lots of more useful things to do, but couldn't resist a quick faff with my lovely new quilt ladder (that's what I'm calling it!) from @simplyscandinavian it's perfect! @simplyhouseandhome much wider than the towel ladders I usually resort to. Of course I will be needing more quilts to display on it... 3w
