coral and cakes

I've been busy taking pictures and baking cakes - well muffins - raspberry and white chocolate to be precise! And, at long last I have some new items on the way, coming soon! : )

In stitches

Do you remember this quilt that I made for Holly last summer? At the time I intended to frame a leftover piece of Heather Ross's 'Princess and the Pea' fabric to hang in her room but never quite got round to it, I came across it again recently and decided to embroider it too. Then I got carried away and bought a piece of the matching 'Rapunzel' fabric to make a pair, and here they are all framed and hung above her cute little fireplace. : )

Help Japan

My sister is taking part in the Japan Quake appeal raffle and has donated a wonderful prize, have you seen it? What a wonderful way to give to a very deserving cause, have you been and had a browse at what you could win? : )

They're done!

My 'I can't afford these beautiful Anthropologie curtains so I will make my own version using my old curtains' curtains are done! What do you think? I am so happy with them, they now look thick and luxurious and seem to finish off the room. And it's great to have been able to use some of my most favourite fabrics too. : )


I have a weakness for macaroons, I think they are absolutely delicious. Stuart and Holly made me some for Christmas, but they are long gone so Holly and I attempted to make some last weekend. It did take a few hours but we ended up with these, they don't look bad for a first attempt and they taste really good!
