Picture intensive

Okay, I've finally got time to post! And a lot of it's going to be pictures.

Hmm...where to start? Well, the cake-decorating class was a lot better this week than it was last. And we learned how to make roses... well, we tried anyway. The rose I did is the white one... Here's my cake from this week, and my cake from last week.Last week, my friend Zoe and I were getting fed up with the class, so the cake's sort of sarcastic, and refers to the class! :-) And here's Zoe's cake from this week, I don't have a picture of last week's:

So that was nice, and the people who taught the class, said that they would send us each a little cake decorating kit, with all the icing tips, and various accessories, so that's cool.

My room's getting done slowly... here's my bed with the pillow shams on it:
And here's my dresser with the pulls, I think it looks a lot nicer, and more finished:
I still haven't gotten around to getting the pencil marks off the side though!
I'm planning on making some smaller decorative pillows for the bed as well, but I'm not sure when exactly I'll get around to that.

I've been working on my "Lord's Prayer" cross-stitch piece, and just last night, I finished all of the words. I still have a bunch of flowers and other stuff to stitch, but getting the letters done was encouraging. I've been working on that thing for 2+ years, I really need to get it done!

I worked on it last night while we watched a movie about Martin Luther... it was a pretty good movie...well done, anyway. But I don't think they covered the history, or really emphasized what they should have, very well, but it was pretty good anyway. Except that the actor who played Martin Luther looked like he was about 19 or something! Okay, yeah, I understand it might be hard to sell a movie when the star's middle-aged and getting older, but really! Find some middle ground!

One of the actors in the movie, Jonathan Firth, is the brother of Colin Firth, who plays Mr. Darcy in A&E's version of "Pride and Prejudice", and they could have been twins... they're so much alike. It also makes you wonder if they can play anything other than guys that stomp around looking mad, because that's what JF's character did in "Luther" ! And that's how Mr. Darcy acts in the movie... it's kind of weird...they're good actors though, and in this movie the stomping and anger fitted the character!

I tried to start a knitting project the other day, but the yarn isn't working for the pattern, so I'm going to have to find another pattern, which is a bit annoying. Especially since I really liked the pattern! Ugh...

And finally, the present my friend Zoe got for me while she was at the beach the week before last:

It's so cheesy that it's cool, and I like it.... as long as it's not a statement about my driving and parking skills...

Hey Nat, is that Luther movie the new one? If it is we've seen it too, and I have the same opinions about it. =)

WOW!!! GREAT CAKES!!!! I am very impressed with all of them. I just want to know when you two are going to make a cake for me?! :) HA

I do like the Luther Movie... Your opinions are interesting and something to think about, but it was a nice movie. I actually saw it in a theater in Greensboro for the first time when it first came out. It apparently was highly controversial and many theaters did not carry it. Then, it sort of disappeared and finally popped up on DVD...
