Sewing, baking ...

amazing what you can get done with no kids around!

Another couple of things I did today, thanks to the Cut and Paste Project. First up, the gorgeous embroidered items from Sumptuosity. I've never really got to grips with a sewing machine but I do love to sew by hand, so I appliqued a little robot, in one of my favourite colour combos of turquoise and orange.  (I'm ashamed to admit it was a robot because that was about the only thing I could draw!) I'm pleased with this - don't know whether to put it in a frame or on a layout.

And Miss Cay from Domestic Sluttery (is that not the best name ever? Sums me up perfectly!) posted a recipe for Blueberry Boy Bait.  Wow. Normally, I would just drool over a recipe and file it away for later but, as Nigel had been shopping that morning and brought home a big box of blueberries as they were on offer, how could I resist?

Delicious - and the cinnamon crust is heaven.  And as for Boy Bait?  Well, even Nigel has eaten some - minus the blueberries, of course, as he doesn't like them.  Hmmm.

And a gratuitous photo of my boy as I am so pleased to have him back home - he has been on a PGL weekend with the Cubs and had a ball, but came home absolutely shattered! He was remarkably clean, though - they made them all shower before they headed for home - how civilised!


  1. Wow! We've certainly kept you busy this weekend! That looks delicious - will have to give it a try myself .... as soon as I recover from the party!

    Thanks for all your participation. :)


  2. What an adorable robot!

    Thanks for a lovely comment on my blog too :)

  3. Wow, I love that robot. Seriously, love it, love it, love it! Mind if I copy and paste?!

  4. Oh I love your robot too! Absolutely gorgeous!

  5. Hi Alison, thanks for your permission to 'copy and paste' your robot, I have made a card with him, which you can see on my blog here:

    happy crafting! x
