Good morning friends :-)
After not blogging regularly for weeks due to my new business I have such a backlog of things to show you all.
I thought that I would begin with this little pile of French cross stitch samplers.
They are a work of art all by themselves but I have a friend who absolutely loves these samplers and I have been slowly collecting them for her to send her. I don't want to tell you who she is or it will spoil the surprise but I am sure she knows who I am talking about anyway......smile
I am sure that she will love cross stitching these samplers and I think that it's a wonderful thing that they will be brought to life once again.
I used to cross stitch many years ago but with my brood of children it is highly unlikely that I will find time to do one. If the truth be known, I began a cross stitch for my son 14 years ago and it still hasn't been finished and he is now 13 ! I had given myself a year to make it before he came along but apparently this project may end up being his own child's one day......oops !
Well you can't rush these things can you ?
I will instead wait to see what my friend will create with these patterns and then I can show you.
A little bit of rosy red brightens up the blue
I particularly love this one. Imagine the rose in a pendant hanging around your neck. GORGEOUS !!
Maybe I could try the rose before I send it off to my friend ?
or maybe not ........
It is sooooo chilly here in Australia right now. Winter is upon us and school break has begun.
Every week another member of my family celebrates a birthday and almost every weekend the whole family embarks on our home for yet another birthday cake. It is so funny :-)
Each week we discuss what cake we will be having the following week.
Next week it is my turn to blow out the birthday candles so I am thinking of what type of cake I will have. Any ideas ?
We have had a cheesecake, a sponge, ice cream cake and yesterday we had a chocolate cake for my son.
We are seriously all caked out ! lol
I would love to hear any particularly yummy cakes that you can suggest that I might try. I know that there are many great cooks out there amongst you all.
