Gifts from friends, and my first proper attempt at blocking -

Hudaks Bakery Orange Loaf. The most delicious bread in the world. I would like to pretend that it lasted me for three breakfasts.

I finally finished Madli's shawl, finally cleaned the soaking bucket and finally had my first real attempt at blocking. I initially fell in love with it when I saw a no-nupps version on All Tangled Up.
