There's no sewing happening here today. That's because there are more important things happening.
The cake is made, encrusted with sweets as requested. Emily is in charge of making the meal for the birthday girl. She volunteered. Yesterday she made the Japanese dumplings. Today she is going to make sushi, Vietnamese fresh spring rolls, crab & cucumber salad, and chocolate truffles for desert. I shall be the sous chef.
Before I go off to do this I will show you the handy dandy new dumpling maker we bought. We are perfectly capable of making them by hand but things do go quicker with this gizmo.
A huge Happy Birthday to my Helen. Couldn't be prouder of her if I tried.
