I went down to Cambridge for the weekend with my family, where we stayed with my lovely in-laws.  On the way there my very patient husband stopped at Grandmother's Garden a wonderful fabric shop in Gordonton.  I had a little spend and got some colours that I don't usually use much of, some lovely script fabric and some tape for embellishing projects

Later that afternoon my sister-in-law and I went into Hamilton to see the WOW Exhibition at the Waikato Museum, there were some fabulous creations, hours of work in some of the pieces. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to take photos.

That same very talented sister-in-law then presented Miss B with this fabulous birthday cake she had made and decorated to celebrate her 11th birthday which was earlier in the week.

I did manage to get a little sewing done, this pincushion has been made for my partner in the Fabric Basket Swap I am participating in through Flickr.  A start was also made on the handstitching of the my string quilt binding.

Off to go and do groceries and housework now - a very wet day for Miss B and Mr J's first day back at school.


  1. What lovely goodies and an awesome cake! I wish I could decorate a cake like that! I love owl's and this one is a cutey!
