Workspace - Creative Place

This week has been quite busy. I still feel I haven't done enough, you know that feeling? But I'm so happy I have started painting after a long break. I also have been block printing on the day when the light suddenly vanished. Thunder and hail storm came to entertain me. Well, I don't like it so much but it made a beautiful light on my window.

Watermelon Cake

Yesterday I was just too tired to everything. So nothing happened...well, today I took the time back. I sewed a t-shirt from old cotton shirt, made two seat covers, made some arranging and cleaning (should do a lot more!), went through papers, some writing and finally I made a cake. Watermelon cake.

I have had natural dye in my mind so many times but I have to admit I haven't had a time or I've been just too lazy, haha. But yesterday evening I had this big obsession of making some testing with tansies.

In our daily life it is very fashionable to say that I've been soooo busy. I don't want to say it but this time - I have to say it. So many things have been going on lately and so many wonderful things!

In The Beautiful Garden

Hello hello! How are you? We made a one week trip to our relatives and friends and we had so much fun. Weather has also been very warm - this doesn't happen so often in our country. Most of the summer it has been too cold and now some say it's been too warm, haha.

Gluten Free Strawberry Cake

Who wouldn't love strawberries? 

I totally do and I'm so happy I had time to make this cake today full of strawberries. Once again I find myself baking on the day when I should be packing for summer trip and planning my business...

Well, we already got some strawberries in freezer - hooray for that! Blueberries are next on the list...

One thing more, this cake is gluten free and dairy free. I used potato starch in baking and used soya cream in filling and of course made some meringue with almond and pecan topping. Voilà...now we can eat it, yay! 

Tomorrow we are going to celebrate our dear lovely friend by going to Pori Jazz together to see Pet Shop Boys and it's not a sin to eat a half of the cake tonight, nope sure not...Have a lovely summer weekend!
