So today I am just playing with it, getting inspired by researching log cabin blocks and admiring her fabric choices and I am sure it will hit me when I know exactly what to do with it (fingers crossed!).

So how do you entertain a girl who just doesn't want to sleep in the afternoon??? After pulling my hair out wondering what on earth to do as I saw my down time slip away, I decided we would have a baking session. Miss B was donned in all her glory in her cooking apron, given to her by her lovely Aunty Sue.
The experiment was to bake a cake using Nuttelex, a replacement for butter (all those cooks out there cringing, I know!). Miss B is on a no dairy and no soy diet and it had dampened my enthusiasm for baking until today. And guess what? The cake was delicious!!! A never fail Madiera cake recipe from Nigella Lawson's How To Be a Domestic Goddess.
Let's just hope I can exhaust her tomorrow so I can have some time to sew in the afternoon...

It was inspired by Prints Charming fabric, and yes, I spent seven months hand quilting. The tension is "unique" but I was pleased with the effect, all crunchy cotton. This is what the back looks like...
On the back I stitched a "B" and couldn't bear to finish the heart to the left, so I could always go back to the quilt if I wanted to...
That's all for now, until next time!
