Friend-Wendy is coming to play today!
We're going to cut all the pieces to make a special project of Leanne Beasley's, and we're using sweet Tilda fabrics...
Our little get-together was very last minute, so late last night I pulled out my favourite CWA (Country Women's Association) cookbook, and baked an orange buttercake for our morning tea...
This recipe was first published by the CWA in 1952, before I was even born...
Don't you love how the orange zest pops out a happy bright orange from the cake and icing?!
I'm sure there would be enough to go around if you dropped by too.
Yesterday was a huge day of organisation in the Elefantz work room. It took much longer than expected because I kept coming up with new design ideas and needed to get them down on paper - which meant they needed to be traced onto fabric and threads chosen as well.
These are some of the blocks that will make up my free BOM, "Shabby Roses Home" which begins this coming Friday.
I also began stitching my tutorial sample for the next issue of Elefantz HOME e-zine for August 2nd.
This issue we're looking at blanket-stitch and how many ways it can be used in a stitchery...
We'll finish this project as a little notebook cover. Very cute, very pretty, and perfect for gifts.
Enjoy your Thursday, and remember to drop by tomorrow because it's only one more sleep until Blocks 1 and 2 of "Shabby Roses Home" will be up on the blog for you!
