...as in busted!!! I use pseudonyms for my children on this blog. Partly for their sake, but mostly as a challenge for myself to come up with something 'clever' that describes a part of them. Well I was well and truly busted this week...
Miss Pi, so named because of her interest in Maths and Physics, has left this sunny land of ours for an indefinite adventure in Britain and Europe. She is following in her mothers footsteps...ie she now has her own BLOG (as an aside she has also taken my vintage 'Lowe' backpack that I bought in Dublin in 1984 when I did the travelling thing way back then). To her siblings blogging is now cool (well hers anyway!) but one of them had a look at the blogs Pi follows...yep you guessed it...Ms Diva found out her moniker. I tried to explain that I meant she excels in the arts (some families joke about enough sons for a football team - I have my own Corps de Ballet) - she took it to mean the colloquial "temperamental"...as I said busted...
...in Body Parts (I couldn't leave that in the post header...can you even begin to imagine the spam that would generate...yuck!) bodies,
After all the excitement of the birthdays (2 down, 1 to go), I am still trying to find time to get these little fellows sewn together. One more day of work this week, some housework to catch up with, and I should be able to get some reward time at my machine.
I had a quick look through the Great Big Stitched Postcard Swap Flickr page...there's a whole range of beautiful, creative, whimsical and delicious creations to sigh over. I am waiting for my swap partner to receive their parcel in the post, so that I can blog about it. I given a few sneak peeks, here and here.
Now I wait and hope that what I've made compares well to some of the gorgeousness I've looked at today.
And I've just glanced at the scary number of beautiful blog posts sitting in reader - I don't think I'll be able to catch up with every one, but I really want to read ALL of them!
Sometimes I really dislike the way normal life (aka responsibilites) get in the way of my lovely hobby *sigh*
(The official cake photographer - me - got sidetracked on the way to the photoshoot, so you will have to imagine what it looked like whole - very like this actually, just bigger and with no cuts!...)
Miss Bee decorated her own cake - butterflies, chocolate nuggets and hundreds and thousands - an 11 year olds delight...
Happy Birthday gorgeous girl - don't grow up too fast!
