Yes, I am still alive!

I just seem to have been really busy the last couple of weeks.
Here's a few things I've been up to.

Garden a few weeks ago (you may be able to spot a small boy in search of strawberries near the back right of the picture!)

Pastel mini fairy cakes,

'Columbia' t shirt for school olympics day (inspired by the flag),

Yoda sandwich! for school trip lunch, using a food colour pen,

cockroach, as it's Pickle's favourite character from Wall-E!

'tea' biscuits,

birthday banner that I started for Chicken's birthday in May, forgot about, and am determined to actually have hanging for Pickle's birthday next week!!
It's the first time I've ever tried to make something remain flat, sprayed with starch and pinned and ironed.. we'll see..
There are letters to attach and some form of hanging arrangement to decide upon in the next seven days (as well as a Mister Maker waistcoat, a cake etc to make!)

Fondant fancies. If you've never tried to make these my advice would be DON'T! These were made on  three different occasions and each time I ended up growling, a lot, and being not entirely happy with the results. Maybe I'm too much of a perfectionist but they just don't look great to me, especially considering the time they took (they tasted fine though!)

Angry bird and pig, based on the previosly made one, but shrunk down, for two brothers' birthdays.

And finally, here's what the veg garden looks like now.

Phew! let's not leave it so long next time eh?

Off to plan a 3 year olds birthday...
