Going to try my hand at a fondant cake this week for the last day of VBS.  I made marshmallow fondant this morning and my arms feel like jello from kneading it!  This will either turn out great or I will just end up with great biceps.

LOL!

I'm meeting Andy's grandma's for lunch today with the kids!  I'm halfway done with the back of my sweater!  It doesn't mean much as the entire thing is made up of lacy knit triangles.  :)

Larissa I love Catimus Prime!  So cute!

We have one!  In fact, we have more than one...we have a whole house of rooms.  Too bad we are never in the same one at the same time

Kim, you're so good making your own fondant.  I took the "lazy" way out and used Wilton for my cakes.

Had work today, court again, and I've started my second knitted mouse.  About to post the first one over in the appropriate section.   ;D

I took knitting to work and fought with tangling yarn for most of the afternoon.  Ugh......

This evening, I wrote and published Part 3 - Anatomy of a Quilt on my blog, complete with it's frustrations.  Here's the link if you're interested:  http://iknitquiltsew.blogspot.com/

Tomorrow will be a better day!

I'm working on another s/s sweater for myself, my MIL sent me some corn yarn in the mail in a gorgeous yellow color and my pics of the kids came in the mail!  Wooot!

Larissa I can't wait to see your knitted mouse!

I finished the kid scarf and now I'm working on a ski hat to match. The hat may be a bit big for a kid though. I cast on 43 stitches like the pattern said and went to town, and now I realize that the picture has an adult wearing the hat. I'm not taking it apart though. I'll just see how it is when I get done.

Oops!  Sounds like something I'd do.

I'm just getting out of court & heading to the office.

I am debating doing more knitting for me or more knitting for my shop.   :D  Or just napping.

I would use the Wilton, but I honestly don't like the taste of fondant and this one tastes just like marshmallows!  If it doesn't work out tomorrow, when I am actually going to finish this cake then it will be off to the store to buy it.  I'll snap some pictures and let you know how it goes!

Today I worked then frosted 48 cupcakes for tomorrow.  I really need to clean the house before the dust bunnies attack but I would rather work on a new necklace that I am about half way there on.

Home now, gonna knit some more.  Need to do laundry tonight.  I hate laundry.  But we'll be away this weekend, visiting friends in MA, and I need jeans, PJs, and underwear.  And t-shirts.
