Have come to land. This very cute little alien is from the pattern by Melly and Me. He was a lot of fun to make. Christened as 'Alien X', he has been to school, football, in a back-pack and had a few flying lessons, with some crashes around the lounge-room. Alien X is only 2 weeks old and already he has had an action packed life, with lots more fun and adventures to look forward to.

Strawberries and Cream

Mmm..... yummmm.... a very delicicous combination! Our local group had a fantastic Afternoon Tea Challenge at the end of June. There was lots of fun and frivolity - even if some of us got the date wrong - it didn't matter, it just provided us with a great excuse for some to have afternoon tea twice.

I made a Strawberries and Cream table centrepiece from a pattern in old Homespun Magazine. It was fun to make and a little different to my usual style, as it included stitchery. I am very pleased with the result.
