My little boy is 8 today. Happy birthday Jean!
In other news, we are slightly overextended...
The last weekend was spent visiting till 3am every night with friends who we saw a very long time ago, and will, in all likelihood, not see again for a couple of years. Good friends remain friends, and we loved picking up where we left off. It left me wiped out, and I could not think about writing. But I did keep on sewing: 66 flags onto 22 yards of handmade bias binding. The garlands are beautiful, I will use them in the rooms once the party is over.
The cakes turned out pretty amazing too! I am almost afraid to decorate them, they are so pretty. I am planning a big racetrack with at least 24 car shaped cakes. Ten down, fourteen to go - but the party is only Saturday afternoon, so I am actually ahead of schedule.
Even though the picture of the garland is a bit iffy, it counts as last Saturday's "project". Just for those who are counting.
