Sweet creative cakes

I just recently purchased two great cookbook/lifestyle books and was really inspired by Jane Brocket and her fairy buns.
The use of color in her baking is so inspiring and creative even for a person that is not a baker like me! 
I made the cup cakes for a dinner party and the chocolate cake was to take to a Thanksgiving meal we had with friends. Yes those are rolo's on top and maybe one day I will figure out how to make a chocolate turkey cake!

Its that time of year.

I saw these great wrist warmers on my fiend Jeanne's blog. Her work is really great, and the blog is worth a visit even if just to see her sweet kids wearing her creations.

I approached her for a pair and we were able to so a swop. How nice. 
I made her this hat for a family member. 
The ladybug button is vintage and the hat is lined with olive flannel and the outside is corduroy. It makes such a difference to use rick-rack in the crown seams looks really finished.

Turtle trunk show fun

Thanks to everyone at Turtle for a great trunk show last weekend. It was so much fun and very humbling to meet the women that shop at this great store. Thanks to all of you that visited and tried on the hats.

Only took two years!

Bibs. I finally made Ady some bibs last month. It only took almost two years. Thanks for the inspiration Jeanne!.
I did just trace bib to use as a pattern. Then scraps of cotton I had in the studio. Lined them with flannel and used old fabric diapers that was passed on from my sister for inside to make them really absorbent.

I used the biggest press studs I could find as closure and it is really secure.

Now I just need to make about 10 more!
