So it was Sebs turn at cooking this morning, so he decided choc cupcakes.
I got the recipe from the Womens Weekly Classic cakes.
It is the best choc cupcake recipe I have used.
Will be using this one over and over again.
Also when grocery shopping the other day I found these .....
My absolute favourite biscuit ..always have oreos in the cupboard.
So thought we could top the cake with a mini oreo.
I made chocolate butter cream icing and Sebastian wanted to spread the icing on himself, so no piping bag mess ..yipee.

One of my most favourite friends came for the weekend, no children, just us 2.
I took her to the loveliest quilting shop and spent a fortune..and I dont even quilt LOL
We spent the weekend stitching..the most we have ever stitched together, ate heaps, laughed heaps, played Just dance on the Wii..and she was whinging that I was trying to kill her..
well maybe to get her stash LOL
and had the most fantastic time with her.
thanks Helen xxx
Brought the pattern for the Li'l Blokes that I loved from the bag.

Madelines friend has come for a sleepover and the girls are doing scrapbooking.
The friend has her scrapbooking stuff in this bag.
Her grandmother made it.
Its all hand piced and quilted.
I just love it ..
do you think she would notice or mind if I swap with her and put her scrapbooking stuff in a Coles recycle bag - and a purple one at that ???

And the thunderstorms continued into the night, we had our own personal firework display..courtesy of the neighbours ! ...but at 1.30am think they were a bit late LOL
Here is a small collage of what I have enjoyed doing in 2009, was about to write this year !
Have loved my stiching and my cooking.
2010 will continue with both and also lots of reading, which I didnt do much this year, apart from the obsessive reading of the Twilight series ..
