An amazing week, topped off with a second place at the National Honey Show.  Slide 12 in this presentation shows my display of produce with honey or beeswax.  I’m really pleased & proud, as this is the first time I have exhibited anywhere, so straigt in at second for a national show is a real achievement.  I’ve got some catching up to do now I’m back home, as lst week was totally devoted to the show, but I’ll be blogging some more about last week soon.

Bought a decal sheet for the printer.  Print on the shiny stuff, then fiddle and transfer on plastic foil to tins etc that can’t take conventional labels.  Only to find the artwork has to be reversed.  Spent ages online reversing the labels line by line – below.  Only to find out that when you hold it up to a mirror, the letters are in reverse order, but still the wrong way round.  Lucky I didn’t print yet, as I only have a single sheet.

and I did the lot before I realised, laboriously, painstakingly, line by line.  Grr – looks like a nessun dorma night, I’m falling more & more behind.  Still have the display stand to finish, rosehip syrup to strain & re-bottle… Before I can think about baking & packing
