We had a little party for my mother in the weekend. Just a family affair but we ended up having it at our place instead of my aunt and uncle's. I had given the pavlova thing a go on Friday, remember? Well, I eagerly opened the oven on Saturday morning and would you believe it, it worked. It worked so well that I got a little bit excited and I think there was a bit of celebratory dancing. Bit embarrassing for the girls really, but I was soooo impressed with myself.
Pav and fruit salad for pudding. Very yummy!
I also made her a birthday cake. Good old cookie cutters to the rescue! It was a bit of a rush job really, as I hadn't planned on making one. It turned out just fine. Shame we can't say the same thing about the terrible photo!
We had a little game of pass the parcel to trick the girls into thinking it was a real party. It worked well. I received some orange and yellow cupcake wrappers, guess the secret of my obsession is getting out!
I had a very unproductive day yesterday. I hate the feeling you get after one of those days. It was a combination of not having any pink thread, not the right coloured fabrics and not having a new project to start.
Anyway I was determined to do something, so I ended up making these small bean bags for the girls. We use them in a song at music and the little girls really enjoy them. I love this fabric with the hens on it. Such lovely colours too. So, the bags only took a few mins each, but at least I made something!
I made something else too, in the evening, but I'm not telling yet. It's a secret!
I'll show and tell next week, I promise.
Well I'd better go and do the breakfast dishes now. It's nearly 3pm and we've been out since 8.20 this morning. Playgroup for starters, and then lunch at my parents. Well, now that "little miss, I don't sleep any more during the day" doesn't have to be home by 12, we have the whole day to amuse ourselves. I managed to escape by myself for a short while to buy a few lovelies at the emporium. I'll show you tomorrow! See you.
