Has anyone seen my diet?

I seem to have lost something. I seem to loose it at the same time every diet.
 It seems to coincide with my desire to make extremely high fat, high sugar desserts around Christmas time. 

This year I made a Red Velvet Cake Trifle with strawberries, raspberries, marscapone cheese etc.

This was accompanied by Honeycomb Ice Cream Cake.

The result seemed to make all the younger nieces and nephews very active.

But the older male nephews and our sons more sloth like.

Strange how young children power on while those twelve and older need the afternoon 'Nanna Nap'.

We alternate year about on Christmas Day. This year we spent the day at my parents-in-law. 

On the sewing front, I have finally finished a library bag for my niece who will commence Kindergarten when school resumes next year.

A chance to practice my free motion quilting and raw edge applique.

Sadly I have not sewn much at all this month, too much happening. But I hope to make some time today and finish a library bag for my nephew.

Hope you have time to sew too.


  1. oh my gosh those desserts look amazing..... sounds like a great Christmas and I love your sewing... I want to do more raw edge this year Ithink...

  2. My goodness your desserts look tempting.....I would bypass the meal and go straight for them. We went for an early walk today (and got drenched) but I think I would have to walk all day to work it off!
    Your niece will have the best library bag in school, your quilting is great.

  3. Hi Raelee,oh those desserts look so yummy,lol funny the older kids had to have a nana nap and the littlies still going strong,happy new year my friend xx
