I made a bag for my nephew when he turned eight. He was baptized and got his own set of scriptures so he needed a carrying case for them. He wanted a Harry Potter lightning bolt. If I were a good blogger, there would be a link to the post about it here, but trust me, it was March 2009.
So my second nephew turned eight last November and he requested a Pokemon ball design for his bag. I was very intimidated by the applique for that one but thanks to my recent quilting activities, the applique was much easier!My brother said he was impressed because he knew it was a pokemon ball without being told! :) Hooray, one long-standing, guilt-ridden project off my list!
And this is a pretty cake to show off my fancy flower bundt cake pan!
M saw me pouring the cake batter in the pan and she said, "we're going to have to fix that cake. It has a hole in it!" I think a watching of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" is in order with this girl!! :)
