My nephew had asked me to make him a cushion with ladybirds months ago, I have had a pretty busy summer but I finally got round to it.

I’ve also been in the kitchen baking my sister’s birthday cupcakes, some are chocolate with a dash of amaretto, the others are more child friendly being just plain chocolate. The other lot are belated peanut butter birthday cupcakes for a friend. They’re topped with peanut m&ms for extra peanutty goodness. Mmmmm
