Cakes & Cushions

Good evening

How was your day? Mine was another hectic one - seems it the week of appointments and having nearly all the daytime hours booked with stuff - some boring and some lots better. This afternoon was a better one - I went with my MIL to visit FIL in hospital. He's doing really well and yet again there is talk of him coming home - possibly early next week. Fingers crossed - the ideal day would be Monday as its little son birthday and he's said loads of times he'd like Grandad home for his birthday.

Talking of birthdays, I finished MrVV's cake whilst he was out on Tuesday;

Another one to make for Monday - slightly different - I have an idea involving sweeties and lollipops!!

I've not managed much sewing/knitting/crafting this week - when its got to evening time I've just been too tired. I did however manage to make a start on a couple of cushions destined for next months fair;


Ok - so indoors in artificial light and on a wonky sofa isn't the best place to take pics - but it gives you an idea!!

Hoping anyone visiting Southwold, will be in the market for something with beach huts on ;)

I remembered today to send my first Birthday Swap parcel - hoping the Post Office aren't too slow and it arrives in time for the weekend.

Time for some Thursday night comedy on BBC2 and possibly a little glass of something!!

See you soon

Oh dejavu I'm making a cushion with beach huts at the mo and another with boats. Maybe its cos I live by the sea. Your cake looks yummy and makes me wish I wasn't on a healthy eating kick at the mo! ;)

Wonderful cushions ~ red, white and blue should sell really well on your stall.

Lovely birthday cake, it's making me peckish but I know I have a treat after supper tonight so I must not cave in to cake, even though it's beckoning me ;) Fingers crossed that your FIL gets back home this week, would be great if it's Monday. Have a lovely weekend xx

Thanx! I agree, would be so upset if the wind blew it down or birds ruined it! Might have to try to find a good inside spot for it!!

Your cushions are lovely! This year is the year I will visit Southwold! Have heard that it is just the place for buying pretties?!!
