And a little more progress ...

It seems like I'm sharing such tiny details with you on my Phebe project - only if you compare the last three pictures side by side would you realise that anything is actually different. But it does seem like I'm getting closer to the finish line with this applique border, and I predict by the end of next week I'll be all done - all that is left now is to fill in the spaces with leaves.

It would be nice to get busy with the stitching this week, but there are much more exciting things afoot. This week my sweet baby girl has her engagement party - and we could not be more thrilled. Her man of choice is just wonderful, and they are sure to have a fabulous future together. 

So, this week I'm getting busy making their engagement cake/cupcakes - also making sure we all have our outfits, and helping out with the decorations. It's all such fun, and it will be a great practice run for the big day next year. I can definitely share the shoes I bought for the special occasion - you all know I'm a shoe gal ...


Aren't they yummy? And of course I love the bling :-) Not sure exactly what outfit I'm going to wear yet, but I have three to choose from, I'll most likely decide at the last minute in a panic after I've tried each of them on again.

And now on to something completely unrelated - this past week I had a hankering to make a pie ... I've only ever made one in my life before, so it was a little scary ... but here's a pic of my apricot pie - before and after baking ... just so you know I really did it!

Yay, I can make pastry! I found a simple recipe on Pinterest - you make it using the food processor, so it really could not be any easier. I feel like there will be more pies in my future!

Well, that's it for me - I have a tier of the cake to get out of the oven shortly and I'd like to be ready for the next one soon. Have a great week! xox

Love those shoes! I have just been to Melbourne for the quilt show and took my friends to David Jones to look at the Jimmy Choo's! And us four almost 70 year olds were followed around by an assistant!

Nice looking pie too

That is a lot of applique done since the last photo. Sounds like you are having a great time baking and shopping. Love it all. Thank you for sharing.

Congratulations on your daughter’s engagement. That is so exciting. My baby girl joined the ranks of wedded bliss this past year. I loved all that went with planning their special day and it seemed to just fly by. You’ll need all the stitching time you can get to help with all that goes into planning a wedding. Your pie looks so yummy...I can almost smell it’s deliciousness.

What a yummy post...Pheobe, shoes with bling, a party and apricot pie, one of my favorites.

LOL I was positive you could make pastry, because you already bake like a domestic goddess! I am sure the family are going to love your move into pies, especially when the weather cools down....hopefully sooner rather than later!

You Phebe is beautifull. I'm also working on here and I'm almost don. Your shoes are beauties love the bling bling in them. The pie looks jummie.

Love, Love, Love the quilt and wish I could enjoy a piece of your beautiful pie! Can't wait to see your next post on progress!

WOW! Is there anything you can’t do?!? I am in awe! And, although the quilt & pie are impressive in their own right, I gotta say I’m most impressed that you can walk in those shoes!!
