Recipe: Raspberry buns (but not here)

You all remember my friend Sarah's baking blog that I kept linking to? Well I'm going to do it again, because I guest-blogged there today! Go here: 30 Cakes in 30 Days to find out how to make yummy raspberry buns.

Mark and I were able to get away for a couple of days last week, which was nice. We went down to Bournemouth and spent some time on the beach...

...and went to the aquarium and met some friendly fish...

...and did a fair amount of sitting about.

And we did even have plenty of sunshine! At a British seaside resort, in August! I know, I was surprised too.

Still here...

...just slowing down! Only four weeks (ish) to go now and it is wearing me out. Hence no updates. Except this one.

The baby blanket continues. I've finished all the pieces, blocked them, and sewn them together. Now there's just metres and metres of edging to knit and sew on! I'm about a quarter of the way round so far, sewing it on as I go. Then I'll wash and block the whole thing as one and call it finished.

Apologies for the darkness of these photos, the weather has turned crappy again and it's pretty gloomy.

Knitting the edging as I go along

I'm not sure I've attached it evenly round the corner, but I don't really know how to make it any better. Hopefully when I block it it will even out a bit.
