Small Blog Meet, Collage and Cakes

Well we are now in the full throws of Spring and with Easter round the corner, what better way to celebrate than by making some new friendships.  So I have decided to take part in Lily from Lily's Quilts small blog meet.

The idea is for bloggers with a small following to get to know fellow bloggers, all with patchwork, quilting and sewing in common.  Perfect!

So welcome new friends if you are out there!  I hope you enjoy reading my blog and I shall make the time to have a look at and follow yours too. 

(I can't for the life of me get the logo embedded within this text so I have put it up on the right hand side - please forgive my technical incompetence!)
And following on from my previous blog post, I have worked hard and finished my second texture collage for my coursework, based on the lighthouse at Corbiere.  It's a shame you can't see the detail of the lighthouse; I painted sandpaper white to create a granite effect, which in real life looks more effective than in the photo.  Anyhow, here's the pics;

Just one more collage to go then I am done for this module.  Getting there, slowly, slowly! 

Freya and I also had lots of fun this weekend making Postman Pat Cakes.  Postman Pat is the current favourite in our house, so when Freya saw the box of cake mix at the supermarket with Postman Pat on it, how could we refuse.  But I don't like the idea of making cakes by adding milk and egg to a powder, (I don't want Freya to think that is how cakes are made) so I binned the pre-made mixture when she wasn't looking and we made cup cakes from scratch, which was lots more fun.

And trust me, they were deeeeeeeeelicious!


  1. I came via Lily's Quilts, your work is interesting -- I had no idea there was a Design for Craft program. Where is the program based? Your little helper is adorable, and I love the name Freya. I like the textured piece in your previous blog - it looks a bit like quilling, and the stained glass piece is lovely too. Nice to meet you!

  2. Hello fellow Small Blogger, found you from Lily's Quilts. There's so much to learn about posting isn't there? I'm hoping, assuming.. that I will indeed learn tricks to do things that seem impossible now and will be second nature later - if I knew how to embed the logo, I'd surely tell you !

  3. I found you through the Small Blogger Meet @ Lily's Quilts. I enjoyed looking around your blog and I am now a follower. I look forward to checking on your progress on your projects. Your children are adorable!
