The last time I posted I was just about to bake 3 cakes for a 70th birthday! Well I did that, not to bad 3 cakes in 4 hours! LOL! They turned out perfect as always, no thanks to a fail proof recipe!

So that Sunday night I was sick.......everything liquid inside me wanted out at the same time, things were not pleasant at my house, I still say it was that dodgy salad from the supermarket that did it. So that was 3 days of feeling like absolute rubbish........so that means no stitching......all i did was lay on the couch and I watched an entire season of Top Chef All Stars which IMHO was the beast season ever! I still think that Carla should have made it to the Finals, although I am pleased that Richard won! Top Chef is most probably one of my all time favorite shows well that and Survivor and Top Model! I like my reality shows!
Then It was back to work..........and I had lots to catch up on! Whew, I was pleased when that week was over!
So I was finally able to pick up some stitching I decided on "Poppy Fairy"
So here she was when I last worked on her.....

I also have been doing some big days at work, 11 hours on a Sunday which is alright and does go pretty quick, although by the time I get home and relax I'm so tired I can barely pick up a needle, last Sunday I managed 1 length of thread...........
We also had a staff member leave work for greener pastures, so as the resident baker, I whipped up some Cupcakes.......Yum.......
So I had to take these in on a Friday my day off, so I ended up staying for a few hours. So When i was talking to the boss about payment, she wanted to give me hours in lieu, but I had a surprise waiting in my tray, a book.....YAY!
I had ordered Joan Elliott's "Bewitching Cross Stitch" and It had come, so I suggested I have the book as payment.........

I'm sorry its such a long rambling post! I am going to go back to weekly updates only because there is to much cover leaving it for so long!
I also want to thank my readers for sticking with me in my weeks of absence i had a fear of coming back and there would be no followers left! LOL!
Well that's about it for now!
Have a great weekend although mine is half over already! Also if there are any readers out there form New York and Surrounding areas I hope you all are safe and well! Take care in the Storm!
Happy Stitching All!
