Cake & Sweetpeas & A Try Out

Here is what I have been up to today lol. Making a Pirate's Chest Cake for Ozzies party tomorrow. Glad to say when we took it over late afternoon he was thrilled with it. There are 5 gold candles to stand on the five coins along the front but his mummy is going to put those on tomorrow.

I just had to take a picture of my first sweetpeas this year. I have these in the house all summer, they dont last long but there is a new supply everyday as these perannual sweetpeas grow a bit like weeds in my garden, not that Im complaining I love them.

Now for a try out. I had an email from Sally, bless her, today explaining how to put a link on to my posts. It sounds easy enough lol, so if it works this should take you to a link to Sally's Blog. Thanks so much for that Sally.

Just a quick note to Lisa who asked about the threads for Dippy. I used Dinky-Dyes floss in 10 Cloudy Skies, 20 Gum Leaves and 26 Wild Cherry. They are not really variagated its more a suble shading.
