Party Preparations

Lots of crafting going on at the moment. Its BL’s birthday party, this weekend. Its got a craft theme. I’ve put down my knitting and found my sewing mojo again. I thought I had lost it a few weeks ago. Almost finished all the party bags, ready for the party girls to decorate. I ran out of ribbon last night and felt a bit like the Tailor of Gloucester, except no mice appeared overnight to finish the bags. After my last post, they were probably a wee bit scared. Swift trip to craft shop and I’m back on course. I love ribbon!

Some of the samples made and others…well, still in progress, but it will all get done. I’m not worried. Cake decorating planned and …oh I’m so looking forward to doing it. I hope I can pull this one off.  If I do, I’ll post some pictures of the cake. (Otherwise, I’ll just go seriously quiet about anything to do with baking.) Yeh! I love preparing for parties!
