Cupcakes and covers

Firstly thank you all so much for your kind words and prayers it means a lot.
I've took solace in stitching and have some finishes to show. It was just over a week ago I got my issue of cross stitch collection through the door and found the most amazing cupcake charts inside. I've been trying my hardest to be good and focus on my WIPs but I was too tempted and dived into the stash to find the bits.
I did sub some colours as to what I had to hand and also added a bit of Madeira glissen gloss into the icing as I had some that coordinated with the pink.

I have had the sewing machine out today while the Hubby took the muchkins out for a walk. So I've whipped it up into a kindle cosey for my mother's birthday coming up. Just like real cupcakes they are rather moreish I'm just itching to stitch about a dozen.


I also stitched up a book cover. I've finally finished reading A Feast For Crows George RR Martin and its in a hell of a state from being chucked all over and on the bottom of the pram etc. And the next book I want to read are nice hardbacks that I want to keep nice to go back on the shelf. So viola

I am sure that should help keep my books nice. The fabric I had in my stash of fat quarters of pretty fabrics. Just love this floral design and I'm not normally one for pink but its dreamy. And I also got to use on of the lovely buttons from my hubby's groma's stash.So a pretty productive day.
Now back to my failing misson of keeping focused and stopping my WIPs becoming a host of UFOs.
Keep stitching....
