The makings of a groom..

I have another update to share of my cross stitch. My bride is now complete, yay! So naturally I've started cross stitching the groom, so you can see his arm in the making. The good and odd thing about this pattern is there is no backstitch. I am one of those odd people who enjoy backstitching as I find it really makes a pattern pop and completes a picture, but funnily enough this pattern looks fine without the backstitch. Maybe because it's a bit rustic looking..not sure, but it won't take me as much time as a pattern normally would at least.

Another thing I wanted to share is the cake I baked for my nephews birthday we celebrated over the weekend. He had a farmyard theme for his party and since I am the cake maker in our family I was happy to bake a creation for him.

 Happy Stitching xx


  1. Nice stitching and cute cake:)

  2. Lovely stitching. The cake looks yummy.

  3. Oh, such a cute cake--what a nice aunt you are to bake that for your little nephew!! And your blushing bride is beautiful :)

  4. Wow, you not only bake, you can also decorate! It's such a professional-looking cake! :D Your nephew is so lucky to have an auntie as nice as you.

    I'm looking forward to the seeing the groom....

  5. Awesome, awesome, awesome! :D The bride looks fab, and your cake looks delicious (as always!) Great work on both counts hun xx
