Back Stitching Gaia..

Its been a while, but I am once again getting back into my cross stitching of Sadness of Gaia, my health has not been very good the last couple of months but I am slowing getting back into things.

Whilst I have been away from stitching I have also found a new passion of cake baking and decorating, which I am teaching myself to do by reading lots of books and watching videos on YouTube 

My recent attempt was a 'Blueberry Breakfast' Cake, I came across on 'Half Baked' by Tessa Lindow Huff  - (I am actually unable to eat the cakes myself due to only having a strict diet (due to my illness) but Rafal, the family and the people that work for Rafal get to eat them.)  I am told this cake was amazing...I wasn't able to frost the outside of the cake completely right as I brought the wrong cream - I didn't know what the Polish was for whipping cream - I do now - but I am pleased with it...

My Sadness of Gaia, is extremely sad as I have not made a lot of progress on her but I am hoping to complete the current page in a week, so I will have a photo to update you with...(this is the last updated photo - taken back in March 2013)...


  1. Sorry to hear you've had health issues. I hope you're on the mend and good as new soon!

  2. I can't imagine baking such yummy things, and not being able to 'taste test'. Wouldn't work for me, I'm afraid.

    Glad you're feeling better and getting back to stitching!

  3. Hopefully all that is behind you now. Your stitching looks beautiful and yummy cake:)

  4. Sorry to hear you've been ill. Glad to hear you are stitching again and your Blueberry Breakfast cake looks so tasty!! :) Happy Day to you!! :)
