Still here but tired....

I know I've been neglected this blog lately but life has been a little busy around here lately. I have just survived a sleepover to celebrate Caitlin's 11th birthday. I initially agreed to her having 2 friends for a sleepover which then increased to 4 friends because she had trouble narrowing her friends down to 2, then it somehow turned into a party as well. It all went off smoothly though and I've got to say it does get easier as they get older. They even organised  a treasure hunt around the house and garden on their own.

Here are their beds all lined up right next to each other complete with a quilt each. Love to see my quilts put to good use!

No girls party is complete without pretty pink cupcakes.

I made a gathered clutch for each of our little guests from Noodlehead's tutorial. Needless to say I'm getting quite good at making these purses now!

Each purse contained some lollies and chocolates, lip balm, mini highlighter, pencil and a pad. I think they were pretty pleased with these party favours.

I'm going to finish this post with a sneak peek of what I've been working on for the last week. I finished this project tonight and hopefully will be able to take photos tomorrow although we do have rain forecast so I'm not holding my breath. I must say my garden has had enough of being hammered with rain lately!

i'm a little peckish... those pink cupcakes look delicious! you've been busy, Catherine, with the sewing and the baking and the entertaining. don't you love it when they can do some of the planning themselves? so nice to sit back and let them go!
