+++ Bake Sale for Japan

Chocolate Cake

After big quake in Japan 11th March, I could not sleep well for a while.... because my uncles and aunties' family, cousins in Fukushima. Some days later I have found all my uncles and aunties families, cousins are OK, but they did not have enough life line at all then following Monday, they have had water and Friday got electricity finally. I thought they were very lucky, and we really really thanked God.

After I found they've been OK, still being upset to watch TV and read internet news because I could not help them, and I could not find to do anything for them. Everyday just praying and pray, pray......

But when I was baking for school charity cake sale for British Red Nose day (Comic relief found raising), I have got an idea finally, "I could bake to sell and donate that money for them."


Soon, I established Just giving page:
Bake sale for Japan
and have had a bake sale at office then sold cakes and received some whole cake order, Yeh!

Curly Whirly Cake

Now, I have reached GBP 280.00 and still have some orders to sell.

Thanks everyone to help me.
I will keep running... for my beautiful country Japan.

This post for not cross stitch works but for my record....

+++ Tea Time & Olga & Bolis

Hello everyone,

Since last post, I have completed Emmanuelle's Tea Timechart

And Paulette's chart:

I have done both Cat and Dog then still look for the frames for these lovely animals.
If you have any good frame idea, let me know please?
I wanna kinda rustic one, but could not find any good one.....
Olga & Boris
Paulette's sample one was very nice, and found that was from family tree frames in Crescent Colours. Somebody knows how do I get it?

And also I saw my daughter's costume for Book character's day! She wants to be Alice from Alice in wonderland!!!
I spoke with her and we decided to wear school summer dress with white Alice's Apron, very much lacy and frilled...

Here it is the apron I made for her!!

Took 4 hours that was worthy because she really loves it!!

But this apron reminds me - Maid in Akihabara (Tokyo) haha.....
Anyway, this was very cute and I look forward to see her in school with other costumed friends!

One more also...

I have received Monique Lyonnet's new book from Amazon France. This is a lots of red and white textiles charts in the book. I really love it!
