Last week I celebrated my birthday, but as it occurred mid-week I decided to wait until this weekend to bake a cake. As I’ve had wonderful success with this cake, I decided to stick with what works and make it again and I wasn’t disappointed. I didn’t have quite the spectacular setting to consume it in as Alison did in this post, but with my eyes closed I could imagine it :o)
From real cake to cute cupcakes… Judith posted about her daughter’s new venture into the world of Etsy (Poppy’s Pocket) and how she makes this adorable charms. Well within 5 minutes flat of seeing these earrings I knew I had to place an order and get them for DD1. She is thrilled with them!
On the sewing front, I’ve still been taming the scraps in the basket and I now have a nice pile of blocks started. I’ve decided to make them 4 1/2” and think I will border them in a coordinated fabric. I’m still mulling about the ideas in my head, but that’s one I’m contemplating.
In between sewing scraps, I’ve been sewing the units for my Sew into Solids quilt. I’m a little closer to getting the remaining 8 blocks finished and can see the end in sight.
If you get the chance…have a look at these links of some of the other Sew into Solid work…
- Amanda has these gorgeous linked hearts blocks and needs some advice putting them together.
- M-R has seen the Forest for the Trees with these lovely blocks.
Until next time....
