Canada Day T-Shirt

My Canada Day t-shirt made using my Silhouette to cut out and sew on lettering.  I love that the Silhouette can cut material using the fabric interfacing.  Just adhere the fabric interfacing on the wrong side of the fabric, put it all into your Silhouette, cut your design or lettering, iron onto your t-shirt, and then stitch on.  Easy Peasy, eh?

Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!

Happy Fourth of July weekend to all of our American neighbours and friends around the world!!!!!  Have a safe and happy long weekend.  Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!

Roman Shades are Finally Done!!!!!!!!

The Roman Shades are finally done!!!!!!!  Who knew that cheapie little vinyl mini blinds, buy 1 get 2 free metres of material, some fabric glue, fancy trim, scissors, and some measuring tape could make these!  I have displayed my Gram's English tea set and some beautiful decanters on an antique Singer treadle sewing machine in front of the window and I am so pleased!!!!!!!  I have enough material to make a few pillows and a table runner, so that is next on the list.  Hope you like them.
Hugs and pugs!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Canada Day!!!!

Here is a cake to Celebrate Canada Day!  I took a cake making course recently and I decided to make a red and white cake to celebrate our colours for Canada's birthday.  I did some pompom flowers on the top and a cascade of little flowers around the top and down the side with some ivy leaves in between.  I am bringing it to a big barbecue that my parents are having today in honour of Canada's birthday and in honour of our wonderful friend Mark who is visiting here from Australia.  I hope that everyone has a great Canada Day!
Hugs and pugs to everyone!
