basket full of wishes - part 2

As we are putting work aside and relaxing for the long weekend, I thought you might love a side trip to the town of whimsy where little pigs don’t fear big bad wolves, skies are raining bright shiny balloons and Brown bears pick cherries for you!
Are you ready? ( " v " )

Let's have a cup of steaming tea with some strawberry shortcake..

We Looovveee balloons!!!!!
Berries that don't fit in a bucket, Oh My!!
Soft round bunnies are surprised too! But Humpty Dumpty is having quite a good time!

Wild mushrooms are so colorful!

A wolf is not fearful at all!!
 What shall we make? Apple cake or Fruit pie, mm...
Boy says milk chocolate is 75gm. Bee says 100g + or - 3g! Any guesses?
Bear and I will have cherries for lunch. Won't you join us? :)
I hope you liked visiting this tiny town and took pleasure in meeting its occupants! They certainly are very happy and wish you a very happy rest of the week!!
I will try to explain how I did the applique' in my next post. See you soon! ( ' u ' )


basket full of wishes - part 1

It’s been very quiet on the blog lately... Sorry for a long break! I didn’t have many interesting things to write about except for a quilt I’ve been making secretly.

Our friend’s wedding was in March, but I am still putting finishing touches to the quilt top and then there is hand quilting to be done. When I realized how late I am in giving her the wedding present, we invited our friends for a cozy dinner at home and gave them a special preview of their quilt in the making. I am so happy that they like it. She kindly mentioned to take my time to finish it but I doubt if it was the right thing to say to me! (> o <)
The best part is now I can tell you all about it! I am excited!

…feel free to grab a treat if you are so tempted…there are chocolates and cookies, herb teas and honey! And even some fresh fruit and macaroons to tease anyone with a fondness for sweets!

I had so much fun filling each basket with choicest of goodies, I hope the bride and groom will have even more fun enjoying our best wishes wrapped in these treats… ( : u : )

 Nice quality pears.

Hello, we are nesting dolls. Mushrooms are our favorite!

I like to nap in the laundry basket... purr

Mom is away... so nice! Mouse and I can sleep all day!

Cupcakes to share..

Honey makes me happy!

for one Christmas, our friend gave us an assortment of tiny bottles of honey infused with herbs. I had to include jars of honey in one of her baskets, Bees are making sure they taste just right!

a flower & a letter from special someone :)

tasty macaroons..

( i wish we had a bigger bag! )

It is very sweet of you to stop by and enjoy a treat or two with us.
Bees and I are delighted to say the least! Thank you so much!
There will be more tasty treats waiting for you next time. Hope you can make it!  ( * v * )
I used machine applique' to add the details in each basket. I will write about my process in detail in another post.
Have a delicious week!!
