Happy Birthday!!!!

Wow! Seven years ago today, my oldest boy came into this world! Time really has gone so quickly!!
It's amazing to think what he has accomplished in those 7 years. He's learnt to walk, talk, read, and write. He's going to school, plays soccer, has friends of his own.
He had a party yesterday. This set me a new challenge. He wanted an Avengers cake. Captain America is his favourite. So the challenge was on. I was going to use Fondant for the first time! I've seen it used hundreds of times on the cake shows on Telly, so that's all the lessons I need!! Haha!!
Actually I think I did a pretty good job. Not bad for my first attempt. (I was informed however that the shield was not right, and even after I re-made it, it still didn't pass the 7yr old test-too bad!)

Peggy Project

In the sewing room today...... A little Peggy project!
I actually saw this in a magazine the other day. They had used scrapbooking papers (and better quality pegs) and it looked fantastic! So this is my take on it....with ribbon of course!! I just used some ribbons from my stash, and a pack of $2 pegs! And I just had to add a couple of buttons as well!
I'm going to use these on my pin-up boards.

Let's get organized!!

Well I don't know about you, but I get in a huge mess when creating! I have material, cottons, ribbons, buttons, templates....... Everything everywhere! But it is an organized mess. I know where everything is (most of the time)!! But hubby had had enough, so being the kind thoughtful man he is, bought me a shelving unit! (some wives get flowers, I get storage!) but the gift was great fully received, as I now am more organized, and it has given me more inspiration to get sewing!!! I think it may be in need of a garland to pretty it up!!

Well it's been a morning of apples!! Stewing, purée -ing and baking!!
Apple purée for bub all in ice cubes trays ready for the freezer, and with the spare I made apple and cinnamon muffins for me!! (and the rest of the family, but I doubt there will be any left by the time they get home from school/ work!!!)


My little sewing project this afternoon - a Taggy Blanky and a few bibs!! I just love this material as it is so bright!

The most beautiful rainbow!

The sky surprised me the other day..... It was whilst we were watching my boy play soccer. It was lovely and sunny, but a bit cold...then out of no where....down came the rain!
And after the rain.....a beautiful rainbow! The most loveliest one I've seen in a long time. I was so full of colour, and just perfect! After I took my photo I looked least 4 others were also taking one! Obviously it was impressing not just me!
