I was posting away pictures of my latest project on Facebook this morning and a friend asked me if I blog...why yes, I blog, and as a matter of fact I didn't post any pictures on it of my new project yet!!! Well, before I do I have to apologize to the current 169 subscribers through Blogger and whoever else might be reading...this post has nothing to do with quilting even though this IS technically a quilting blog. Quilting is my passion...it tops the list of my all time favorite things to do next to cuddle with my three children. (That's number one.) Problem is I have something like 879 other hobbies that are really fun too!!! I love anything creative. (Like blogging.) I like to write, I like to read, I like to talk, I like to make things, I like to grow things...I especially love to EAT things! (Usually food.) So I apologize to those of you who came here looking only for quilts...because I am having a harder and harder time keeping my mouth shut about all the other things I'm doing! (Facebook and blogging become necessities when a stay at home Mom...stays at home. What did stay at home Mothers do before the internet? Drink? Lol*)
Anyhow I've been busy. I should be busy working on a pillowcase dress for my Husband's Aunt but I had to do an experiment first. A cake. A CAKE!!! My littlest is turning one! My cake lady is having a baby and pretty much out of commission for the year so I'm on my own. I do have a back up...but you know I'm also cheap as heck (I must be with three kids at home) so I had to try to do it myself before going to someone else.
The theme is...well...duh...Disney. A particular mouse who dons a bow, usually polkadotted. Here's a couple of progress pictures...
I made a four layer cake and it's been chilled in the fridge. Now I'm off to attempt to cover it in fondant. Woohee!!
