First off it looked like this:
Then you have to poke it with holes - this is why I am a knitter, just so I have the DPNs in to poke holes in my cake..I debated the Harmonies but couldn't bring myself to use them, so the one that was used is modelling proudly in the middle of the cake.....here we go:
Anyway, here it is minus DHs mug of tea (he was working from home today)...
What else did I do today.....well I decided as per previous post to make hearts for Christmas Decs...as I got to 2pm and was hunched over my sewing machine with my back and shoulders sore and tight, I was questioning who had the bloody silly idea of making hearts for the house...Why do I read blogs where the houses look beautiful, they write lovely books and then I think I can translate it into my life......bla!!
I am NOT giving up, here is my sewing day in photos:
First off, my beautiful fabric
Crafting Christmas Gifts by Tilda. I love the projects in this book and hope can I do the most simple thing justice....once again watch this space, I will photo the tree for a little admiration. I also have another of her books: Sew Pretty Homestyle, one day my house will look like this.
Then about 5pm I had a pile of these...little hearts that need stuffing, a ribbon on the back and a neatly sewn seam...28 of them!! And this is only one fabric, I have 2 more to go - yikes!
Have I ever shared with you my light fitting sticker in the dining room? Thought not, so here it is.....I am and always was a Starsky girl....you??
