A lovely weekend in the sewing room...

I have spent a lovely time this weekend in my sewing room stitching my stitch a book (as mentioned in my previous post) The stitch a book online workshop runs for 3 weeks, and we are now into the second week. I am loving this workshop so much!!! I have used designs from both Mardi and Kims books in my book..and today added my own little design on pockets for the inside pages (a turtle and bee) but will show pics of these next time!
How cute are these butterflies?? My flowers arn't included in the book but were just used to prop the butterfly up for better pic.
The owl on the front cover is so adorable...now you can see how I was unable to resist signing up for this online class! Mardi and Kim are so clever and have put together the most beautiful fabric books!
I didn't spend all my time in the sewing room...I did (reluctantly) come out for meals and to make this Carrot Cake...
It really is the yummiest Carrot Cake I have ever made! The recipe is in New Ideas Masterclass cookbook (found out local Newsagency), which has some other recipes I am also keen to make.
Enjoy your week!
