Happy St David’s Day 2018

Celebrating welsh roots today. Dug out past years’ crafts, as no time to add to them this year. Welsh peg dolls, felt leek brooches and my needlefelted red dragon are in the middle of the table today.  Also a plate piled high with homebaked welsh cakes was conquored.

The expressions on the little welsh ladies always make me smile. Can’t help adding a caption.

“Nerys had to smile. Blodwen was still under the impression that it was Norbert the dragon who had eaten the last of her welsh cakes, and left her none, but Nerys knew different. Blodwen and Norbert were no longer talking. Nor was Blodwen pacified by the suggestion that leeks would make a good alternative for tea.”

(Nerys might not be the only one to hide a few cakes for later. Hee hee!)

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus!

Anyone else celebrating? Or just fancy a welsh cake anyway?

(How to make: welsh peg dolls, felt leeks, welsh cakes.)

    I used to work with a Welsh chap who bought home made Welsh cakes in for the office on St David’s Day. I’ve never thought of making them myself but as I’ve just found out it’s a snow day tomorrow (yay) I might have a go, only a day late.

      Oh yes. You must make some. They are so easy too.

    I’m not Welsh in the least, but I’ve always loved the name David. I did just have a thick slice of homemade bread with oats and dried cranberries in it for lunch – does that qualify? It seems similar-ish. (I like your felt leek)

    I had Welsh cakes in the freezer for when we have Airbnb guests to put n breakfasts. I had mine with homemade lemon curd. Mmmmm

      Love lemon curd. Never thought to have it with welsh cakes. Hope you enjoyed it.

    We don’t celebrate St David’s Day but I’m all for learning and teaching the girls about the world we live in. #mmbc

      We do love a good excuse to celebrate and St David’s day is a good one.
