Not often I blog during the daytime but I've a cake in the oven and I can't wander too far from it as its getting to the almost cooked stage. Another birthday tomorrow - big son. Cake gets made today and then decorated once he's gone to school tomorrow as I want the finished item to be a surprise. Lets just say it will be along the lines of my normal over decorated and colourful cakes! I've also a pile of pressies to wrap too - am hoping that he'll love the Toy Story paper I found yesterday.
Been finishing off more items for the craft fair this week but I found time to finish a felted purse for myself;
From knitted piece, to felted shape to purse :)
I've another piece of felting drying at the moment and started knitting another piece last night whilst watching mindless nonsense on the tv.
I've also been playing around with a collection of random cups & saucers that I've got - far cheaper than Liberty's - I've started making these again;
Teacup pincushions with Annie's lovely pins in them.
I treated myself earlier in the week to some lovely new fabric to make myself a new dress - so far I've got as far as washing it to preshrink it and then hanging it out to dry;
The 2p gives you an idea of how small the squares are - all those straight lines should make sewing nice and simple!!
As I was wandering around the house earlier opening windows, I thought I'd take some reality photos of my house - here's big sons room complete with floor 'storage' and the mess of a soon to be 15 year old male.
Who lives in a mess like this????
Study area complete with card collections and a radiator based Top Gear cool wall.
I need to have a hunt through old photos later to find something suitably embarrassing I can post on here or Facebook tomorrow - can't believe another year has gone past so quickly. As he informs us - only 2 years till he can learn to drive - have suggested he starts saving ;)
Finally before the timer goes ping, Monday went really well. The crematorium was packed with people from the many parts of FIL's life. We heard so many stories about him and laughed as well as cried.
See you tomorrow with some cake pics.
