First off, a super-fun afternoon project: a quilted pencil-case. The fabric is left-over from the quilt I made for my niece.
The inside, in a coordinating fabric.
A close-up of the quilting.
My cat had a visitor come calling this week.
We live deep in the 'burbs. The developer's equivalent of strip-mining took place before the houses were plopped down, so the wildlife that used to live here was pushed out or killed. This chipmunk is the first I've seen in two years... nature slowly adapting and creeping back to the land we took.
(PS... Liz has since informed me that this was a red squirrel, not a chipmunk, and that this is even better. :) )
Next... a juicy pendant that Velda sent me for my birthday...
She knows I'm crazy about orange! It was a perfect gift... thank you. :)
The Citrus Poppyseed cake I made yesterday. It's a truly decadent cake, with gobs of butter, sugar and eggs; but it's such an infrequent treat (once a year!) that I can make and eat it guilt-free. Almost. :)
Martha Stewart, I ain't... I couldn't smooth out that icing for the life of me, but since it was being eaten amongst family, I didn't sweat it. It tastes wonderful, despite the crappy decorating job.
I need to return to these...
so farewell for now!
