For the past week....


I have been quite busy over the past few weeks, so I didn't really think that I could link this up to Lily's Quilts at the start of March...could I..   

A dinosaur cake was requested but a very special birthday boy, my nephew.

I actually forgot to take a photo before I packed him into the box for his journey up to Dublin.  But I did give him the window seat to check out the N7 scenery.  I think he is quite happy... Don't you?

The cake went down a treat andmy other 4 year old nephew has already put his order in for his cake in May.

So what else have I been up to?

Well I have had this book for some time.  I bought it in my Pound/Euro Store and thought it would come in handy if I was designing some projects . 

Grid on one side and a page for some notes.

 Cindy was linking up with Sarah @ FairyFace Designs for her {Sew} Get Started group. 
Book covers was her tutorial.
Made with linen and some scraps from my collection and some new scraps from Hadley's package last week and a little ribbon bought from Fabric Rehab....very Orla Kiely. 
Made up quickly if I read the whole tutorial through instead of just looking at the pictures....(a bad habit of mine,) but overall a great tutorial...thanks Cindy!

All I need to do now is start drawing my ideas into my new book.

I will be making some more of these soon, very handy!
