Making, baking, photo taking

Firstly, thank you for your lovely comments on my last post. I'm a little unsure where my blog fits these days and I often wonder about my sporadic posting, whether to blab on about life as we know it or not. While I tend not to share too many details here...both my running and my returning to work has been a big deal for me so I thank you for your encouragement. I have been trying to nurture me a bit a bit more this year and both these things have been dolly steps towards that.

So, I thought I'd share some recent making, baking and photo taking...after all that's what this blog is really about isn't it?!

So as well as pj making I stitched up an easy peasy skirt for the littlest love. A marriage of new and old-new fabric teamed with a thrifted doily and trim made from floral sheeting.

A spot of bunting is always fun to make too. Was great to snip into some of these treasures.

Sunday breakfast is like a cafe at our place. I cook for everyone and because they are all a bunch of fusspots, I usually make three or four different breakies. There are usually hasbrowns and blt's, omlette and french toast. Sometimes there's caramel apples. The Mr does the coffee. Always.
Recently, I baked a Blueberry Breakfast Cake. I will definately be adding this one to our breakie menu. It is absolutely divine.You will find it here. Definately worth making and best eaten still warm.

I've been very slack with my photo taking lately, opting for the handy iphone in my back pocket. I love the ease of snapping a quick pic and have had a bit of fun playing with an app or two. A real mish mash of images but each spoke to me in one way or another.

 Have a great weekend! I am off to the swap meet. Hopefully I'll have some spectacular show n tell to share.

These are wonderful images, Lea! Did you continue with this project? If you ask me, I'd definitely recommend you to continue because your photos are wonderful and catchy. Did you have a photo viewer before? The one you had to click to scroll through images? You can have your photos converted to fit them!
