I'm really excited about this.

I go on holiday on May 24th until June 2nd so I wont really have much internet access so I hope we have a decent sign up time and then I can do it as soon as I'm home.

Yay! Cheesy

I just got this lovely box from Ramona Q.



How nice is that?!?!?

I really, really love the tiny "pearl of wisdom".  I want to keep it in my wallet.

Thank you SO much...I absolutely love it!!!

What a box.



Everything is so pretty and I'm delighted with the anchor charms...I'm working on a bit of secret crafting Roll Eyes and one of them is gonna come in so handy!!!   Cheesy


Thank you SO MUCH!!!

super cute! Where did you find the fabric? I love it!

Thank you - I bought it from a fabric shop in Glasgow called Mandors.  There's on in Edinburgh too.  Wink
35  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / My first quilt - but a bit of a cheat... on: May 02, 2011 12:37:31 PM
Well,

my friend in work goes on maternity leave next week so I wanted to make something for her little girl when she comes along in a few weeks.

I just bought a panel of fabric (what a cheat!) that I liked, backed it and put a border in it.



I stitched the border twice, round the wee stripey bit on the panel and then around every other letter square.





The backing on it was a pretty gingham print - I'm pretty sure she'll like it but this was my first attempt at a quilt and I can see so many faults in it already.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll get better when more of my friends start having babies!!!   Cheesy

36  COOKING / Dessert / Red Velvet, Stripey Birthday Cake on: April 30, 2011 07:37:49 AM
So....

It's my friends birthday today and she's havin' a BBQ but last night me and another friend decided to try and make her a birthday cake - we both do bake but this one is something totally different.

I finished it about 10 mins ago (I'm posting while I wait to get picked up to take it away)...this is the final piece....



We where heavily inspired by this I am Baker blog entry http://iammommy.typepad.com/i_am_baker/2011/04/red-velvet-strawberry-shortcake.html.

From the top...



Without it's clothes on   Wink



Every second layer is red velvet and there's buttercream between each layer - and all over.

Then we covered it...look how lop-sided it is...



So we just waited until that was dry and put more frosting on it to even it out and I stuck a bow I had left over from a birthday present years ago.



Hopefully she'll enjoy it...any C&C's are welcome!

Thanks! Cheesy



P.S.

She loved the cake!!!

Here's an inside shot...
