She brought this for the tree.
It is quite big so I will have to place it carefully.
It was Fran,s birthday on Thursday, she had requested a cup cake for tea.
Chocolate cake, chocolate ganache and maltesers. The ice cream was meant to cut through the sweetness but in fact it was sickly sweet. Luckily my neighbour has a sweet tooth and a passion for ice cream. The cake is very good though, moist and rich, only 6" across so not too much to force down.
I made her cushion yesterday after she had chosen the fabrics.
I have had this little chap for a few weeks now, just forgot to share.
Today started with a little sun but turned to rain in moments, just as I opened the door to take Ben out.
I was pootling through blogland and found a zippered pouch tutorial so had a go. 3 pouches from 2 fat quarters.
I am pleased with them, they will go as a little extra in gifts.
The lining is a pale print left over from something, a bit too light for the project, but it just about works.
I have a pile of fat quarters so will be running a few of these up.
I have to persuade Ben that it is okay to go out in the rain, he never used to worry about the weather but like me (and most of you) he has had enough of it.
