My sister can't bake a cake at home, my 4 year old nephew talks about mummy's flat cake. I can't work out where she goes wrong so she came round and we baked together. I had come to the conclusion that maybe over beating was the problem but this looks good and tasted good too. She is off home to try another in her oven.
She then moved upstairs to make a case for some of her music (she plays flute and sings) and needed a small folder for one of the groups. I had made a few of these from a tutorial by crazy mom quilts and she wanted to have a go. The fabric on the other side is pink on pink sheet music, a remnant from the Bramble Patch and the inside is a coordinating glittery pink. I think she has done a fab job especially as vinyl is not the easiest to use.
I think craft and cake is a combination that will become a regular feature in our calendar.
I have made a start on Noah's penguins nothing to show yet though.
Happy quilting Liz

This quilt was the next I think. I bought a bunch of 2.5 inch strips from a show from an irish company something seed or something shed I cant remember but I cut them all in half widthways and made this. I thought at the time it was log cabin but have been told it isn't quite right, but hey you live and learn and I like it. This photo does not do it justice the colour is much better than the photo suggests.
A rotten cold woke me up, I didn't really want to get up at 5.30 to blow my nose but once up can't go back to sleep so I have done the ironing, yey! but didn't think doing the hoovering would go down too well with Mr Chaos even though it is swarf that he has trodden in from the workshop that I am looking at. I have been able to blog guilt free. Just time for one more cup of tea before the circus that is getting my family up and out in the morning starts.
Happy quilting Liz
