April has been a busy month, they all seem to be busy around here though. We had one birthday in the fam, which was my dad's .. so of course..we had cake :) Vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream icing turned into this shaggy green golf cake :) Inspired by the talented Lyndsay from CoCo Cupcakes ! ---> Check out her blog if you get a chance, sooo awesome!
I have been working away at sewing. My first market is about 3 weeks away, and I have about a million socks to sew! Variety is good though...RIGHT? :)
So I started out with a rainbow of little monsters. I cranked up my new Michael Buble cd (love it) and stitched my day away. Michael (we are of course on a first name basis now), is not only an awesome jazzy singer, but he is some definite eye candy as well :)
I had a pretty productive day as I was in the "zone". The kids went swimming with Grandma, my hubby had a lazy sunday, and I sewed. But this is the pile that I am up against. I try to make rules for myself. But no matter where I go, I find socks!
So for the next couple of days I will be settling in each night to finish up this bucket. These monsters are all ready to go, they have arms and mouths, and just need faces :) I picked up the first season of Glee to keep me occupied while I sew. Monsters LOVE to sing, so they figured this would be perfect!
Aside from monsters, I am still of course crocheting. I LOVE crochet, and can't seem to get enough of it! Right now I am working on an "African Flower" pattern which I found on Flicker, by Elizabeth Cat.
And also.. random different granny squares. As I was cruising through flickrville I came across a "SIBOL" project, and thought.. what a cool idea! So I am hoping to pitch in for that as well.
Cake, Crochet, Monsters, Glee, Michael.. phew! If only my day job didn't get in the way ;)
