New Hat

I finally finished Edward's hat that I started on the weekend. It's not perfect but he's happy with it, so that's the main thing ;) He picked that fabric himself from my stash, he loves the fishies and I love how it's completely reversible.

I used a "Make it Perfect" pattern, the Lazy Day Hat. I have another one cut out for Gracie and will try and make that soon. It's a little bit big for Edward but it will keep the sun off his face which is the main issue.

It's very sunny here today...hence the squint.

Yummy comfort food

My friend Tas made the yummiest Apple Cake when we were all at her place for our crafty day. I loved it so much that she posted the recipe on her blog...well today I decided to do some baking with the children, Gracie loves to bake :)

Anyway typical of apples in the house, so I found a tin of stewed apricots and improvised. Currently it's cooling in the kitchen, we'll tuck into it in a little while. It looks and smells delish!!

Thanks Tassy :)

Baby Lulu

At my Crafty Mamas catch up last weekend I just loved Helen's top and thought that it looked familiar....anyway here's the reason why.

Just love Baby Lulu.....the fabric is just beautiful. And I love Helen's top too!

Fun crafty day with some of the Crafty Mama gang.

Had a really fantastic day with some of my Crafty Mama friends. We started the day at 10ish (which meant 10.30 ;) ). I was a little ambitious in the amount of sewing I anticipated completing as the picture indicates - haha. Although I don't think I won the prize for the biggest crafting haul of the day....just ask Helen (stitcharooney)!

Everyone contributed bits and pieces towards lunch but a huge thank you must go to Tas (Little Boozle) for her wonderful hospitality and her husband for letting us use his house all day. Here's some of the yummies that we had, in the top left hand corner is the yummiest apple cake/slice that I've eaten. Loved it! I should have swiped the recipe!!

Here's Tas and Helen crafting up a storm.

Just after lunch Becci arrived and more chatting continued. Still wondering if it was a chatfest or a craftfest - haha. So I've decided to call it a funfest :)

Although there is a glass of bubbles in front of me, it certainly wasn't a boozefest....despite what Tas' hubby though!

What a great day, wish we could get together more often, fun, fun, fun!
