Charlie’s Baby Shower

I was delighted when Whitney asked me to help do the Baby Shower for Charlie! I did the Sweets and Kim did the Savoury.

This was my first venture into Fondant Cake Decorating. I made the Baby Elephant Topper from Gum Paste, and was thrilled with it. Whit asked for two tiers of double layered cakes. Wow a challenge alright! Unfortunately, I had no idea the top tier needed to be placed on a board and be supported, so ot was lop-sided by the time the party started lol!

The Nappy Cake I made as an Elephant too. He was surrounded by little Nappy elephants.20180122_160842-COLLAGE

I added lots of little drawn/cutout elephants to decorate the table and food.


I made a Guest Book for all to write in as a Keepsake.

I made Shortbread coated with Chocolate, Elephant Biscuits and Chocolate Elephants

I crocheted a few items too – a ripple blanket with an elephant, an amigurumi baby elephant and booties


All in all it was a lovely day, with family and friends and lots of laughter, happiness and wow! the gifts were amazing!









Stacy’s Owl Rug

Owl Rug

This is my version of the gorgeous Owl blanket by Red Heart Designer Michele Wilcox

I made mine a rug for the Nursery Floor,

and backed it with some stiff upholstery fabric for extra strength

Baby Stacy makes

I have been blissfully busy for a year
with projects to make for our new Granddaughter.

Stacy Jean is an adorably sweet angel.
The Paediatrician says she is a “Tiny”.
I am enjoying her immensely.
She is a calm, sweet baby,
and has had no problems with winds or anything.
Her smiles melt my heart,
and she is learning to laugh – very funny!

A Chariot for the Princess

The pram and car seat for our little girl
was BLUE, and slightly worn
Not fair, and not fit for a princess!
So I revamped it
with a new car seat cover
recovered the blue
in a lovely cream and brown tartan

I added a removable seat cover
with soft padding
and belt pads too
for extra comfort
and so it is easy to wash
a head rest and mobile are coming next!

Owl Baskets

The Nursery Theme is Owls
Perfect for a little princess to aspire to

These Owl Baskets will hold all the little things
on the Changing Table
to keep it neat and tidy
while everything is right to hand

I did change up the large basket a little from the linked pattern, but didn’t make notes.
The other two baskets, I just started with a circle to the size I wanted
and then made the sides as high as required.

It is a paid pattern
