Hopefully this isn't my last last cake, just the last cake for my class. I think I might even take the next class which is just on flowers and something else. I really had a lot of fun.

Most refrigerators may contain things like food, drinks, snacks, eggs... you know the normal. Mine sometimes looks like this.
Eliza likes to put her doll in here because the hair will change color. Grandma Bev gave her this doll for Christmas last year and it has these two cute streaks of blue hair on its head. Well, at some point they turn purple when they warm up. Apparently this is a pretty low temperature because they are purple all the time during the summer here. I don't keep my house too cool..or too warm, but too warm for the color changing hair.
Of all the dumb reasons to be up all night this was is the stupidest. I went to my sewing class last night and made this. It is machine applique. It makes what I do look so childish. This is so pretty when it is all done on the machine.
It's not totally impressive but knowing what my sewing machine can do was so exciting to me. I was up thinking of the possibilities. Of course today all I want to do is sew. I think I can arrange that. So, here comes a lazy day. I need to make it to the library, return some videos, hit a grocery store and sew. Lots of fun for me!

Last weekend we were able to go to our friends cabin in Brian Head. I don't know how they do it but they make us feel like we are doing them some sort of favor by allowing us to use this beautiful home in the mountains. It is at 10,000ft elevation and is the perfect temperature. The trees are wonderful and air smells SOOOOO good. Jenna had a great time sitting in the dirt and playing. She sat there peacefully for a good 20 minutes! We also had fun with our friends that came with us. Maxine, Genko and Yasu, who used to live next door, drove up for the weekend with us. Genko sat on one end of the ping pong table and tried to help the girls hit the balls I was hitting to them. It was quite fun. It was such a nice relaxing weekend!
Last night I decorated seconde cake. This one is a little warped because you will notice a few headless clowns. I also had practiced my roses, which are HARD, and had to put them on. So, there is no real consistency to this thing but it was fun and I am learning a lot! By Eliza's birthday I should be able to do something cute and I'll be 20 lbs heavier from eating the yummy cakes I practice on! Boy I do like that icing. This cake was vanilla with a chocolate pudding center. It was quite yummy! I need volunteers to eat my cakes!
