cakes, cards and buttons!

We had a wonderful birthday tea party last night for my bestest crochet buddy (with added wine and scrabble) and i finally got to put my cupcake obsession to good cause to make birthday cupcakes. Yum. :)


finally got to play with making button push pins today, which i'd been dying to try since reading this.
i think they came out great!


Also tonight spent some time making some pretty butterflies for birthday cards, and sewing a little rustic felt chick as i'm getting excited about the vernal equinox (not to mention two bank holidays!)

i have had so many cakes and cookies this weekend i feel like a kid after a birthday party (which i suppose i sort of am), hence not being asleep despite it approaching 1am. apparently we are due a big storm tonight, so i am hoping i don't wake up to find my basement flat flooding!

Your little buttons are cute! I'm amazed you found fabric with such teensy little prints.

Oh the buttons turned into beautiful pins! The yellow gingham came into it's own too. Thanks again for the yummy cupcakes :D
