Sewing

Good morning! How was the weekend?  We had a lovely stormy weekend here, lots of wind and rain, but nothing damaging.  Just good cozy stay indoors weather.  I got a ton of sewing done.  These poor lost cups are all in a row, as are the geese.  Now to cut some leaves and get busy on those.  This weeks row will soon be here and I hope to be ready to get started on it.


cups

I started what I hope might turn into a fine idea, I made one of Lori's cakes, and it was very fast and fun. I'm thinking of turning this into a square and making it a cake pillow. Wouldn' t that make a perfect birthday gift? Or maybe a single cake wall hanging, I'm not too sure right now, I just couldn't wait to make one. So calorie free and satisfying, it took longer to figure out what to use than it did to cut and make.

I hope you had a great weekend.  I suppose your tree is up? You house decorated? We picked up some huge poinsettia's for the front porch, that's as far as we've gotten. Tell me what you're up to.

I have a friend who is making individual cakes and then putting them in frames for the birthday person.
So glad you were OK weather wise. My sister lives off the Napa River in St. Helena, where the river overflowed it's banks into their yard. But, this time their house stayed dry :)

I did a little decorating and gift sewing. The rain came to SoCa to but not with all fury of up North. But we still have some today, Heavy enough to muddle traffic, slow enough to soak into the ground!

Your sewing is darling. I love the cake with PKL fabric. Perfect. The tree is up. Mason did it, which means it looks like it. I'll pretty it up when I get a chance. But it is up and my stuff is out, although kind of piled. I need to dust. Hate that so I just go in the sewing room and sew. Typical me.

The birthday cake is so cute! It would make a great wall hanging to be displayed on for birthdays.

I like the idea of framing them for each member of the family to have their special day - that's great!
