… but I have not forgotten this cake

round and round the mixing bowl, like a whirling wind, ..1 step, 2 steps,…and it is ready

I’ve chosen pink for the whipping cream.  This whipping cream is a miracle; the easiest to use.  All, I have to make sure is my apparatus and utensils have been in the freezer before attempt to get in contact with the cream.
Ta-dah!!! and it is ready for me to frost the cake, can you smell or taste it?
 Sometimes, I do dream that I can even transfer taste and smell over to all you out there that are reading.

I am top-stitching my cherry blossom with cut up raisins
 Does it or does it not feel like I am making a quilt pattern or applique for my sewing project?  I eventually at more raisins and craisins as pollen.

consider it as DONE! (mind you I did all these with the help of my other two children, just can’t stop them to share their creativity and love, can I?

There she is, our darling girl, birthday girl
 I am sure all of you can agree with me that no matter what went wrong at home, at the end of the day, they still remained as our pride and joy.  xxxxoooo

This is it, US! One happy and blessed family. clockwise: Vic (hubby), me, Elijah (son), Elisabeth (1st daughter), Nayomi (2nd daughter

 Did you notice, there is a picture of Nayomi in a zebra print box?  Well, I thought I paid a fortune for that print. LoL!  It was worth it, though!

that’s our boy!  he just made my heart melt by the way he ate my cake
 Did not he make you think that he is eating the most scrumptious cake in the world, at least to me anyway; very good model.  Simply know how to put a smile on my face.
that’s our beautiful first born darling girl, Elisabeth
I apologized apart from the cake looking like an applique, there is nothing about sewing on this post.  Nonetheless, I just felt too happy to keep them in my mac alone.  Afterall, I did bake with time and love; TimeNLove-42

stumbled on to new gem … the beauty of blogging

Hi there, how is it going everyone?  I want to apologize for not updating as consistent as I REALLY REALLY desire to.  Well, enough said, … there is this lady that I stumbled upon two days ago (or so) and she is none other than Retro Mummy.  Well, she is from Australia and I found something very unique about her; an australian using oriental/ Japanese sewing magazine and patterns.  How beautiful!

I am only starting to use Japanese sewing patterns and I am learning so much through (only) the illustrations and photos detailing.  It is spectacular!  They are genius, I must admit.  The reason for me to start using them only about now is because of the myth I have been carrying in my mind:- You cannot read japanese there fore do not bother about japanese sewing pattern drafting magazines.

Bt, Jo, my mom in law (thanks to her) was encouraging me and showing me how easy to understand them just by studying the pictures.  Believe me, they are thorough!  Meticulous indeed.

So you out there who are once fearful you can be sure, if Westerner are using them; then everyone can use them despite of language proficiency.

Wait, that was not where I was heading.  I really want you all out there to meet Retro Mummy for sure.  Her website are very informative and cool.  I know all women would fall in love with her blog.  Check it out!

Are you familiar with the name Rosalie Quilan?  Well, that’s what she intend to giveaway; fabrics by Rosalie Quilan.

At the moment, retro mummy is having a fabulous give away and I trust ABSOLUTELY NONE OF YOU would want to miss this give away.  Hurry hurry mates!
