I'm Back...

Now that the smoke has cleared...
I can return to my normal everyday life and I have things to share. On the 6th of November my daughter was married and it couldn’t have been a more beautiful day.  The temperature was in the 60’s (yes in November) and the sun was shining bright as can be all day. I know I may sound a little partial but my baby was the most beautiful bride I have ever seen. Here see for yourself.

She asked me to make her a wedding cake, something I had never done before and it just about drove me to the loony ben. I used a Martha Steward, marble wedding cake recipe with white butter crème frosting with a chocolate Ganesh filling all made from scratch. After making a couple practice cakes the end result wasn’t too bad…

 Don’t worry “Cake Boss” you still have your job.
In between practice cakes I was able to frame the wedding sampler, they loved it.
I was able to make a little progress on “Around the World in 80 Stitches” I now have half of part 14 done.

I have been keeping up with the “Plum Street” mystery SAL every Sunday; there is only one more part for both I & II to go.

I completed the third part of the Jardin Prive’, “Positive Thoughts”, I think this one has about two more parts.
In the mean time I have also finished "Angels of the World" by Joan Elliott.




Well thank you all for sticking with me during my absence; I don't know who was more nervous me or my daughter, but I'm back and will see you again soon. I'll be making more wonderful little xxs.

Beautiful couple and agree your daughter looks stunningly gorgeous. I remember when my sister decided to have her wedding in November. My backyard nonetheless, do I clearly understand the looney bin phenomenon. ..lol. You did a fabulous job with the cake. Constantly amazed at your stitch work.... pretty.
