Design: Victorian Blooms
Well, that's all for me for a little while. The laundry renovations have begun and my craft room and study are off limits from tomorrow until the dusty demolition work is completed. I think I have piled up enough projects on the dinner table to keep me busy for the week. I should get plenty of stitching done with no washing or ironing to do for two weeks and very limited household chores. My next post should be on Friday, my birthday with the announcement of the giveaway winner.

Yesterday we had a birthday party for her and again she had a wonderful day. Her brief for the birthday cake was pink with fairies and flowers and a castle. I came up with a plan made the cake and my DH did a wonderful job of decorating again. He loves this part and really enjoys the decorating. I only had to put in the last finishing touches.

I have also been working on more secret stitching and hopefully, when I have more than five minutes without the help of my almost three year old expert, I can finish them and send them off. Some are PIFs, some are just gifts. But who needs an almost three year old who wants to snip and glue everything she sees helping??? Aurelia just wants to help with everything and always says she won't touch, but those little fingers seem to be on everything all the time.

PS. The beautiful Scissoroo scissors you can see in the pictures have severe corrosion on the handles. I have only ever used the pair once using clean dry hands, otherwise they have been stored in their case. I am so disappointed that they have deteriorated so quickly (I only purchased them in March). Does anyone have any ideas what I can do?
