Yesterday was my birthday, and it was a good one. Marty was able to get me The Art of Embroidery, which is full of wonderful photos and inspiration (I have a whole new direction for the spider quilt I was planning).
And there was good cake for all (from Nigella Lawson's "Feasts" book, the chocolate espresso cake. I added a chocolate ganache-like drizzle and some confectioner's spangles for fun.
Hey, who ate a slice already!? (Marty, that's who. But I gave it to him, so can't complain :)
