HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRYLEE. AND CHEEKS ANYONE?

A VERY HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY TO OUR GIRL BRYLEE!  We hope you have an awesome day.  We love you heaps!  *smiles*

You know you're a crazy sewer when you go to the supermarket, get your stuff... and as you walk in the door at home you see yourself in the mirror:


ABOVE:  And you realise you went out with dogs CHEEKS pinned to your top!!!

Yep.  And no one at the supermarket seemed to notice... or at least didn't stare at me like I was a crazy woman.  lol


 ABOVE:  Remember the chair cushions and table runner I made in that lovely blue check fabric?  Well, I have enough left over to make these:


ABOVE:  I might even get three out of what's left.  And yep, that's the dog's cheeks, now in their rightful place.  *smiles*


 ABOVE: The beautiful purple flowers are coming up under the cherry tree now.  I just love this plant, and I'm slowly transplanting bits of it, so I have it growing all over the place.


ABOVE: More of it ... so, so pretty.  It's very hardy, and a spreader too... so easy to transplant and propagate. 

This morning Brylee and I will be baking her birthday cake.  I have two chocolate cake mixes, some frosting, some chocolate finger biscuits, hundreds and thousands and candles.  So we should be good to go.

I'm hosting Card Night tonight, so we will be having a few extra people to help Brylee blow out her candles too.  Should be a nice evening.

Oh and I am expecting Lacy, Kelly and Rena this afternoon for a couple of hours too.

So, a busy day!  Love busy days.

ONWARD...

10.45 am:  And I've spent the last half an hour getting all hot and bothered.  Even got a crazy hot flush cos I was getting mad as hell.

My keyboard stopped working.  Then the computer stopped working too.   OMG I get so, so upset when that happens.  You might as well have cut me right arm off, it feels like I'm crippled!

BUT... crashing the computer (off) worked.  So I'm back in business.


ABOVE:  Ready to rock 'n' roll.... I feel such a cheat using 'boxed' cakes!  But hey... we did have to cook them.  *smiles*

In about an hour they should be cooked and ready to cool down.  Brylee and I will decorate them later on this afternoon.  Which should be fun.  


ABOVE:  And it's done.  And it's come out exactly how I wanted... Brylee and I did well.

The girls just came out for an hour or so... it was a quick visit as Kelly had her dog in the car (recovering from Spey surgery).


ABOVE: School holidays, so Rena was able to come out too.  She got to eat the top part of one of the cakes, I  had to cut it off to make it flat.

I'm starting to feel more confident in front of the camera now... nice feeling.

9.30 pm and the girlfriends have left after a lovely 2 hours of playing cards.  We did Brylee's cake too...

ABOVE:  It was a very yummy cake... I had two small bites to taste each of the cakes.
Sue B brought Sugar Free marshmallows, which I indulged in.  They were nice for a sweet change.

Tired now... won't be up too late tonight I hope, but knowing me, I'll find something to do and won't want to go to bed till I've finished it.  *sigh*
