Cute fabric purchases

I brought some fabric remnants now just need to decide what to do with them! I have 2 small bits possibly cushions and 5yrds of a lovely cotton fabric that I think is headed towards a dress.

Sewing Machine Refresh

Well last night saw me get behind a sewing machine again for the 1st time in over 10 years. Fun refreshing my memory and practicing the all important straight line and try not to press the peddle to enthusiastically.

I’m determined to get back to dressmaking, it’s such a great skill and one that should probably be taught in schools again!

Cupcakes attempt 2

I made another 24 for friends & family. 12 chocolate again & 12 strawberry cheesecake. The chocolate worked better as I beat the buttercream longer, the cream cheese was a bit runny however as I overworked it.

My friends are loving being my test subjects though so plenty of opportunity to practice!
