Don't look now if you are hungry...

I spent a lot of time in the kitchen yesterday baking and cooking. I had bought this lovely book on Friday with yummy recipes and couldn't wait to try one out. I went for the Pistachio and Lime cupcakes and they were delicious. Not many left tonight...

Hubby and Big Boy went to work in the garden. So in the meantime, while Baby Daughter was having a long nap, I started to "grow my mushrooms". I used an applique method that I hadn't used for a long time, I used back basting applique. This is for my hexie swap in the Australian Craft Forum.

Tomorrow is a big day for us. I am going to school for one hour with Big Boy. He will officially start "Nursery School" on 4th May. He will be attending school every afternoon from then. Before he starts, we have been invited to attend for one hour with him so he can familiarise himself with school. He will also be going on Wednesday for 1H30 on his own. He has been going to playgroup for about 18 months before so I don't think it will be difficult for him to settle but this is a big milestone in his life, one of many I believe, starting school. I still need to make his PE bag which I was hoping to start tonight...
See you soon!


  1. I think back basting is the best technique for me when it comes to applique. Makes it so easy to get perfect placement!

  2. Congratulations on the huge milestone! :) How exciting, and I am very intrigued by back basting applique, I really want to give it a try myself...
    now those cupcakes... no comments...
