Wedding Cake

This is a completely open post. I am looking for wedding cakes in Melbourne Australia.
Cheesecake is a great option, but not limited to, I am interested in hearing about cake makers in Victoria, Australia. The wedding in question is in Mid March for 65 people.
I am interested in both good and bad stories here, not just commercial stores, but we love the home cook too. Even if you do not cook yourself, but know of someone who is an avid cook and could potentially be up to the task and live in the Northern Suburbs or the City of Melbourne i would love to know.

Tilli and Meg

Tilli Tuckered Out! She is so happy to have the pool table back.

New Project

This is going to be my first project for my home and the first time doing applique.
I will be making 6 table mats and a table runner.
The book is called 501 Quilt Blocks a treasury of patterns for Patchwork and Applique published by Murdock Books. The sandwich fabric is 100% recycled blanket from Aldi.

I have decided to make one block for each place mat and then use all the blocks in the table runner.
Now the fun starts, choosing the fabrics from my stash.


Has anyone seen this cute little quilt? Kimberly is asking the quilting community to keep a look out for it. She displayed it at an open house and it never made it home with her. It is pictured above in her recent book, Jelly Roll Quilts and More. The really sad thing is that she sent it to her publisher when she was hurrying to make deadlines for the book, and never photographed it. The only record she has of the quilt is the photo in the book. It's a small quilt (22" x 22"). Keep your eyes peeled on ETSY and EBay. She just wants it back- no questions asked. Read more about it on Kimberly's blog.

Table Decorations

For the past couple of days we have been very busy. Steph came down for 3 days and in that time we set ourselves a timetable and got it done. Day 1 shoes, (i cannot put them on the blog until later cos they ware going to surprise people, They are really lovely. job done, ticked off the list.
Day 2. Wedding Dress Fitting. Lovely, Dress will be ready for a second fitting on the 15th Feb. the day after our nephews wedding and Steph has booked her time to be here then anyway, so that is just perfect. Job done, ticked off the list.

Last day, day 3, Steph booked for us to go to Wellers first as a thank you and to sample their menu and wine. so a table of 6 was booked and we went. LOVELY! the food was very nice indeed, looked and tasted lovely, the wine was nice and all had a good time.
We took more photos and had a lovely afternoon.
Steph had to go back home, happier that she managed to do what she wanted to do in the short time she was here.
