it’s not autumn here in the southern hemisphere, but i’ve got some autumn-esque things to blog about!
my dear friend sarah is going through a bit of a stressful and emotional time right now, and wants to have a very low key birthday. she’s coming over to our place tonight for a quiet meal and some girl-time. but a quiet birthday doesn’t mean the cake can’t be a bit special, so i have spent my morning making this:
i am NOT the baker in this family, so i have no expectations of it tasting as good as it looks, but fingers crossed it will be edible and festive!
in other news, i was sorting out some photos in my flickr photostream yesterday and realised that i forgot to show you how this old project turned out!
i pretty much made the pattern up as i went along after being inspired by a pattern in joelle hoverson’s “last minute patchwork and quilted gifts”. forgive the photography - it’s not my best, but you still get to see the finished quilt and that’s the main thing!
so here i am, surrounded by these lovely orange, yellow and earthy hues, wishing i was heading into a crisp northern hemisphere autumn and a cold winter, rather than a sticky hot aussie summer! ho hum!
