This is going to be a short but sweet post as I'm pooped after a whirlwind couple of weeks and a busy (but lovely) weekend.
While we were on our jolly holiday in Spain I didn't just knit innocent smoothie hats, I embroidered a cheapy cardi from H&M.
Of course the idea wasn't an original one. I got it from the book Make by Cath Kidston
I loved this little project. So soothing. I would like to tinker about with all my cardigans. I have oodles of ideas floating about in my head and a fair few bland cardigans too
My next post will likely be all about our weekend which started with my good friend Princess' wedding and ended with mine and Mini's Christening.
I made the wedding cake. No that's a fib. Princess baked the cake. I decorated it. It was a labour of love. I piped over two hundred and fifty royal icing hydrangea petals. Didn't use them all of course, only the best ones.
I'm not going to lie, the stress I felt whilst decorating and transporting this cakes was ENORMOUS! I badly wanted it to be perfect and I put a silly amount of pressure on myself. This is why I could never ever do cake decorating professionally. I'd be in tears constantly! Princess would be utterly horrified if she ever knew that the only reason I didn't throw the bloody thing across the room was because she had baked the cakes herself.
Fortunately it all cake ( I meant 'came' but I've left that freudian slip in) together beautifully in the end and it survive the three hour journey to Portsmouth intact. I made a big poster to go in the back window of my wagon saying "Wedding Cake On Board" and I drove like a right old codger. Not a single person hogged my tail or made me feel intimidated. I might put the sign back in as I often get some burke on my tail trying to push me on. Honestly, do they really expect my people carrier to take corners like a Mini?
There's a bit of a sneaky peek till next time....
