I haven’t posted anything in a while. I was making something WAY better than a new frock: This little guy! He was born on Saturday 25 January just before sunrise. I sewed a few maternity things but they were either so boring or so ugly that I’m fairly sure you don’t want to see them. […]
This was my second attempt at Cake’s Tiramisu. The first time I made it, I found it very low in the cleavage (take a look here). Not necessarily the pattern‘s fault, my short chest and prudishness are also to blame. I was hoping that second time around I could pull the two bodice pieces a […]
It’s entirely possible that I love this skirt more than cheese. My first attempt at Victory Patterns and I’m every so happy. This one is Madeleine, a full circle skirt with oversized pockets and topstitching detail in contrasting thread and as if that wasn’t cute enough, suspenders for you to hook your thumbs around and […]

Or perhaps Tiralova… We had some very lovely friends over for lunch on Easter Sunday and what better to make for dessert than an egg based one? I came up with this recipe fusion thanks to Cake Patterns (will blog about that soon!) and a shedload of egg whites in my freezer. I can’t actually remember […]
My husband had to borrow a ute from a friend yesterday to pick up our new BBQ. He asked me if there was something that I could bake as a thank you because “he doesn’t really drink”. The man owns a ute, but doesn’t drink. I love when people defy stereotypes. Have you seen the […]
I have resisted writing a blog for a while now, but I have decided that some things I do are probably worth remembering!
