  1. Cream bun cake! Please do try it and post the recipe. Looks squidgy and creamy and wonderful. Loads of good stuff again

  2. I really want to Linda! It looks fabulously delicious! xoxo

  3. Oh my Marie I want to dive into the screen and touch all those embroidered creatures and then to explore the little hobbit size tins. I am hungry and that bun cake is calling me. I need to get back to my journal and sewing. I have done a lot of knitting this week. Thank you for all the delights you have found.

    I have spent my day unearthing and finding all kinds of things.

    God bless you today and always. Is Todd feeling better?

  4. Hi, Marie! Such fun and pretty projects and stitchy things today--all very inspiring!! That Cream Cake looks sooo good! Pity we're trying to reduce the goodies a bit post- Easter... LOL! ;) Thank you for all the jolly and fun here on Friday1 Happy weekend to you all there... ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

  5. That bee keeper:) What stitchery..that's like your work..perfection:)

  6. Thanks Suzan, I am curious now as to what you have found! The wheels are turning. GOOD things I hope! You have been very productive with the knitting lately! Todd is feeling a LOT better today! He has gotten more sleep these past couple of nights! xoxo

    Thanks Tracy! We need to cut back on the goodies also, but that will have to wait until after our company leaves! Happy weekend to you also!! xoxo

    I love, LOVE the bee keeper Monique! You are right. It is soooo me! Thanks! You are so kind! xoxo

  7. It is all too embarrassing. We have been squashed in this house. It was not built for three generations and I a slowly unearthing layers upon layers. Some places are almost like an archeology dig. Also my ex has sold the house I bought but he got and finally he is giving the kids their stuff. There have been many tears over ruined things and lost stuff. Pip is especially hurt. So I have had to sort decaying bags to see if I could find treasure in all the trash. He is moving about half an hour away. I am relieved but wish there was less importance on things and possessions in this house.

    Today I bought three nice boxes and spent some time sorting out school stuff and photos. Even if they don't take them there is a finite amount of space and that will be it.

  8. Ouch Suzan, what a chore! xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
