Thanks you for all your wonderful comments about the cookbook project! It has been very exciting to be involved in a cookbook – so far 10 of my recipes have been styled and photographed, with another 8 being done this week. I have learnt some great food styling tips and it will be fun to see some of my baking in print later in the year. Sarah took a day off school to be my assistant and thoroughly enjoyed herself, as well as having the opportunity to get a good insight into behind the scenes of a publication. It has been a good few months for me on that score as 5 of my sewing projects will be featured in the Lark Book publications “Pretty Little Presents” and “Sweet Nothings” which will be coming out in fall 2009.
I have been spending most of my free time in the kitchen over the past week and had to deal with such frustrations as my freezer dying on me on Sunday (I am still waiting for the repairman!). I whipped up a new pot holder using Cassie’s excellent tutorial for perfect binding. You can see it here with my “Baby Apple and Almond Cakes” in the background.
I played around with a quilted piece of fabric that I had left over from another project and made this triangular shaped purse.
After my recent foray into decoupage (it is very addictive), I made a little coaster for my studio to match the clipboard I made recently.
Today is my dear sons 14th Birthday! It is hard to believe how fast the past 14 years have flown since we embarked on parenthood. Although he prefers to remain anonymous on our blog, I just wanted to share one of my favourite early pics of him with you. He is such an easy going, caring, generous son. Happy Birthday BJ!!
