A little cup cake

I started a new little motif stitching this morning. It is for my cousin, Sally, for her birthday which is at the end of August. I will make it into a nice card as usual. I have no brothers or sisters so have always been close to my cousins, we grew up together and spent a lot of our summer holidays together. Of course nowadays we both lead such busy family lives that we only see each other a couple of times a year. I know she isn't aware of my blogging...... so I can post pictures. Bet you can't tell what it is yet?? It is going to be a little pink cup cake with a big candle on, it'll then say "Make a Wish" on it! I'll post an update in a few days, it may look more like something then.

I also finished my SamplerGirl - Cup of Cheer. Thanks for all your ideas I think I will go with something like a tea cosy but I am going to look into having a little tea caddy/box for my tea bags and maybe I'll use it around that! I'll let you know what I do with it! I think I'll do the seaside one next, they are really sweet.

I started back on my Family Tree last night, which was fun I hope I can make good progress on it this week. Already I am running out of some of the green colours that are in the tree part, so I may have to make a visit to the Needlework Shop!!

Now I must go and water the plants as it has been warm here and due to get warmer.... I don't suppose it'll last but while it's warm my plants are crying out for water.

Hi Ginnie, lovely blog and have enjoyed finding it this evening. Noticed you're in the West Midlands. I grew up in Wednesbury until I was 15. My parents were born in Wolverhampton. Just wanted to say hello to a fellow Brummie. This photo was taken in our back garden when I was about five, in Wednesbury.

Delicious colours on you cup cake. :) The cup of cheer looks cute.

We've had so much rain this summer that I've only had to water my flowers once or twice! I hope it gets a bit sunnier when my summer vacation starts in the beginning of August. :)

Hi Ginnie, Cup of Cheer would look great on a box to put all you teas in. I love boxes. The cupcake looks yummy. I may have to try some cards. I used to do a lot of rubber stamping and made all my cards. Kinda phased out. Stitching them may be a fresh new idea. I know everyone misses my cards. They tell me over and over. Have a great day.
