We had a cool, rainy, gray, long (teacher workday) weekend, which is just perfect for some hand sewing:
This one is my Alphabet Sampler from Alicia Paulson. Love, love, love. Want to finish it, but don't want to have to stop working on it. Know what I mean?
This is a sneak peak I can show you some more of later...
Getting ready to do some serious "farming."
And we also celebrated the boys' birthdays this weekend. I made two cakes - a pirate and a pirate ship. For the first time I used fondant. I love buttercream & still used it, but it is hard to decorate with. I made Marshmallow Fondant. It was very touch and go (Andrew literally left the room when he saw my hands covered in sticky, melted marshmallows), but all of a sudden, I had a nice, pliable fondant. Very cool to work with.
How was your weekend? What kind of projects does cold, yucky weather make you want to curl up with?
