Scottie Dogs

So the Christmas makes have begun! Every year I have been making dolls for the girls but quite frankly after lasts years epic makes, I just couldn't face it - so this year I'm trying my hand at Scottie Dogs and hopefully owls as well. Honestly, how we find the time I don't know ladies?!!!! I'm quite happy with the results for my first effort, finally getting to use up some fabric and even some little jingle bells around the collars. The Union Jack one is for my eldest (11 going on 21) - and how much fun is going through your collection of buttons? Why did nobody tell me!? TTFN xxxxxx

Anyone for CAKE?

So I recently visited Brighton on the south coast of England and accidentally ended up in a Cake shop. These were no normal cakes these were works of art!!!! I had never seen anything like it in my life. This was around Halloween, so there were a few spooky ones. I was inspired and went on to make a Bowling Cake for Lily's Bowling Party and a Castle for Poppy's Princess Party. I was chuffed to bits with my little effort - but nothing will ever compare to these.......... TTFN xxxxxxx
