Just a quick note to let you know that I'm still alive. I'll write longer during the week I promise. Until then, please enjoy the following photos. The first one is my favorite cupcake ever. I haven't tasted it, but if I ever had the chance, I don't think I'd be able take a bite as I am not that heartless to eat something that looks this elegant!

And the latter is my felt version of this beautiful yet inaccessible, at least for now due to living on different continents, cupcake designed by Louise Winther Dueholm, the lovely founder and the editor of Cake Journal.

Making it was so much fun. And now looking at these two photos is also cheering me up. Hope the feeling is contagious and you feel the same each time you come here.

Have a happy Monday and a fantastic week y'all!

Ta-da-ish moment

Actually I've finished crocheting one of the pillows and without waiting for the other to be completed, I've started another... Very typical of me!

Anyway... It's been a fun project in many ways. Instead of making the granny squares first, and attaching the flowers on them, I first crocheted the flowers and used them as the center of my granny squares. I wanted this pillow to accompany the previously started, but not finished one, so the main color of this pillow is ecru as well.

Then, while searching for other alternatives for more crochet pillows, I came across with Sarah London's "Wool Eater Blanket" tutorial and started my third pillow project immediately. I've added another round with turquoise since the photograph was taken. Here's the wool eater pillow in progress.

Next weekend I'll get 3 pillows, and ask the tailor in the neighborhood to sew pillow cases for me because 1. I don't have a sewing machine and 2. Surprise Surprise! I don't know how to sew. I'll show the finalized pillows when they're finished.

Have a happy Monday and a fantastic week y'all!
