Saturday found us at an enormous play centre, celebrating Rory’s birthday with his friends.
The party was a great success, and Rory was particularly impressed with the cake.
Of course, It had to be baked in someone else’s oven (thanks Leigh!), but it was the Hawks decoration that Luke put on the top that won Rory’s praise.
As Amelia put it, “That was so good of you Daddy, to make a Hawthorn Cake, when your team is Carlton“.*
Sunday was quieter, but no less busy.
We spent quite a bit of time in the garden, planting my birthday plants, pruning, and enjoying the plants that we already have. Michaela was busy pulling the buds off the Camellias, and wanted to make sure I got a picture of her treasurers
In the photo above, you might be able to see a peek of another flower, of the felt variety, that I made this weekend.
These clips were heavily inspired by a motif that is often seen on Asian textiles, the cherry blossom. I made one in a coral colour and another in purple.
This one is actually a little present for a birthday girl – I am looking forward to seeing what it looks like in her hair.
Finally, some late afternoon sewing – an unfinished project. Can you guess what I am making?
*These teams are Australian Rules Football teams, for those of you who have never heard of the Hawks or the Blues.
