Pincushions & Cake

I decided to add a flower to my apron after all


........ in the form of a pincushion.


Then I made some bigger ones ...


Peachy Pink Flowers

Pale Pink Rosebuds,

 Peachy Pink Rosebuds

...all available in my Esty shop shortly
Boxoftrix 

I made a cake for Mothers day, I was not overly tempted by any of the cakes or deserts in the supermarket so I decided to make my own

Victoria sponge


..... topped with butter icing and pink caster sugar,

decorated with a sprinkling of silver dragees.
 

........ filled with strawberry formage frais and blackcurrant jam




Delicious it was...even if I did make it myself :)

12/04 Update : I should have got around to it before now but I seem to be saying that to myself a lot these days.

I took some pictures of the lovely gifts my four children gave to me for Mothers day


Wine, Chocolates, two beautiful plants, in colours I love :)



Can you see the beautiful pink glass plant pot just behind the chocolates

There was a chocolate orange too but we ate that before I managed to get a picture

and these are just so cute x
I feel very lucky and blessed to have 4 beautiful children

Hi Von,
Was so impressed, with apron, I am doing one myself just now, lol, however, read your words, and life changes , we change, how we feel changes,how we see things, etc, and just wanted to say, artists are led by instinct, and if thats what you feel, today, then its right. Theresa,x
