You have to have cake on a birthday, don't you? For my Dad's birthday we had an amaretto cake from Paolo and Donato's deli in Liverpool, which was positively gorgeous (they make the best ice cream too!).
On the sewing front, I completed a dozen needle cases that were a commission. I'm only showing one photo of these as they've not been seen by the lady who ordered them as yet.
This week I am going to dive into my things made Christmas box so I can have a head start on the christmas making.
P.S. As usual I'm taking part in Handmade Monday, pop over to see what everyone's been up to (I'd like to appologise to everyone who's blogs I didn't get round to visiting last week on the Handmade Monday list. I was visiting a lot of blogs thanks to 'Where bloggers create 2013' and there are only so many computer hours in a week.)
