I set to work. Two and a half hours later I finished! Completely finished; hand sewing and everything. I think there is probably room for improvement, but I'm very happy with it. For once I am completely content with my fabric choice, and looking at the colors just makes me happy.
Yesterday the Wee Ones and I made fudge. Not regular fudge, but the kind kids go for and adults cringe at. It's made with marshmallows, sugar and butter. My daughter wanted the "Fairy Fudge" to be pink, but we had to compromise on the sprinkled topping. My son got to choose the topping, and chose sugar sprinkles in his favorite color: orange. This is the pink, plastic-y, kid heaven result:
Thank you for comments on my previous post. Unfortunately the flowers are not from my garden; having a beautiful garden is something I dream about, but never seem to get around to making. If it's not a perennial I can plant once and forget about, it's not for me! Those pictures were taken on lovely excursions with my Mum to Butchart Gardens in Victoria. Such a place in the spring time is serious soul-medicine.
