Star Baby Afghan

I heard that our local mission needed baby blankets for the layette sets they send to the local hospitals.  They just donated about 15 sets last week, and were in need of more blankets.  I had several small scraps of pretty yarn, and started on a pentagon shape.  Eventually, I decided to make it into a star shape.  It is just the right size for a cover for a newborn, or to use in a baby carrier.  I was pleased with the combinations of colors.

April Fools Cake

My school had a Fun Night on April 1st, which is April Fools day here in the US.  They have lots of different carnival type games, bounce houses, and a cake walk.  The teachers/staff at the school were asked to provide cakes for the cake walk.  I was inspired to make something funny, considering the day.  I found a cake online that looked like a dog food bowl, using cereal for the food, and decided to add a water bowl to go with it.  My friends loved it.

Did you do anything for April Fools day?
