In Between Days
Here is how the cake turned out.........something I would have done differently.....I would have added yolks to the cake, it was falling apart as I frosted it. I "spackled" it with frosting and froze it to hold it all together. It held up ok but they did start to fall down as the night wore on. Overall I thought it was fun and the kids liked it.
This was a favorite and colorful gift. I want to read them all over the winter. Maybe someone will pick a classic for book club? Hint hint.
Some more color to admire and make my day happy.
I used some of them to make this. I had an idea but not so sure I will follow through with it.
It seems like this time of the year I ping pong back and forth between projects and or ideas. I went through some vintage fabrics I have last night because I want to make another basket quilt. I also need to start thinking about projects for our getaway that is coming up in February.
I made a mess. The nice thing about having a room of your own is that when it's bedtime you can leave it all on the floor and walk out of the room!
I found this in there and totally forgot I had it. I love how simple yet vintage the design is and the yellow is beautiful. The picture does not do it justice. I think they were cafe curtains.
This was my book club pick for January. I am so disappointed because I didn't think it was that good and I really liked the cover! Has anyone else read it?
So the in between days of Christmas and New Year's are always kind of unsettling for me. I am anxious to take down the decorations but have no energy to do it. I want to sew, sew, sew but not sure what to work on. My kitchen floor sure could use a washing but no I am not doing that....today. We have some more parties coming up over the weekend so before you know it the new year will be here. I just want everything to go back to normal scheduling.......how about you?
