My Creative Space

today is all about making for my birthday girl.  A patchwork cushion for her bed in her favourite colours.
An op shop find, painted and waiting to be hung up.
And a special treat, French Almond Macarons with vanilla buttercream, to take to school to celebrate with her class.
To see what everyone else has been creating, here is the place to visit.
