Rouge et blanc - sc no 199

 A few weeks ago, the sc was all about making a cradle for our cat. I took an old pillow, covered it with an old shirt, thinking it will be the base of the cradle, but as it came out a triangle and quite big, I left it like that and did not publish it in my blog. My cat was rather pleased with the result but I felt it wasn't finished.

Then came the new sc, talking about making something with a stitch we never used before, so I added some little roses for the "royal sit" and a button using a technique new to me, but still I wasn't happy.
Eventually came the sc 199, res and white, and so I added some white roses and a white button, and now the work is completed, combining the three last cs.
So here it is:

 As for the desert, here is a cake I made las saturday, inspired by the idea of red and white....

SC n° 196 - Les années 80's !

The second half of the 1980ies was mostly spent by me studying at the University.
 I was a very devoted students, reading everything in the reading lists.

So, when the challenge of the 80ies came about, I made a little owl, honoring the Godess Minerva (Athens) -  the Godess of Wisdom, Intellectual curiosity and Knowledge.

The design was adopted from this youtube tutorial.

Here is my little owl.

sc n 195 - Granny square

A few months ago, I came across an "african flower" tutorial and I made a few of it, so I had enough to make a little bag, It's now in my bag, I use it for cosmetics.
When Isabelle suggested the challenge of the Granny square, It was a chance to make something new. so I made a little purse for change money.
Here are my two creations together.
