Okay so I was on a roll making cupcakes. Here's another one I decorated with roses. You'll be seeing a lot of ways to decorate cupcakes in the next week or so because I'm visiting my parents and I've had to store a bunch of photos on my blog because I can't upload photos on their computer. I am so happy to be home. No matter how many years away or how nice I make my flat, there's nothing like our living room in front of the big screen TV, my sheepy blanket from when I was 8, and a large bowl of buttery sweet popcorn.
One of my favourite things to do is sew with my mom. Instead of having a sewing room, we have a sewing basement. There's boxes of fabric (we could probably become a supplier to Joann fabrics), buttons, ribbon boxes, and three sewing machines. Everything we need. I've been so looking forward to my mother teaching me how to make some more advanced projects and have brought home the lingerie pattern I bought the other week, (See further down my blog for my botched adventures in knicker making) silks, and a huge list of to dos. When I'm back on my normal computer, I'll be able to post the photos. With my mom by my side, hopefully, I'll avoid burning holes through silk, cutting three of the same left side of a pattern, sewing the seams wrong side out, etc.
No matter where I've travelled to in the past (Paris, Brugge, or Venice), there's no place like home - sewing with my mom in the basement.
What crafts do you make with you mom?
