Feather Marking, Wedding Cakes and Golden-boots

29 Jun

1   Mr S is fitting the trellis against the painted wall and found this beautiful feathery marking on the support pieces.

2  Working on my Guest post for Choc Chip Uru, I was reminded of this time of year six years ago when I was having trial runs for making KJ’s chocolate wedding cake. I had enormous fun making several different recipes and taking them into school for the staff to test out for me. I also did a couple of different decorations so that the bride and groom could choose. The final version had beautiful real white roses on it.

3  Just for fun, I decided to make some tiny Golden-boots, based on the pattern I use for Sally-boots, with possible yarn bombing in mind. Then I thought, ‘Do I really want to lose these?  Er, no!’         I’ll have to devise something less time consuming for the knitted graffiti!

      I am! I was given a fabulous book recently (see 28th June) about Yarn Bombing and I really fancy having a go! 🙂
      I think my colleagues did enjoy those weeks! 🙂

      They were just chocolate cakes and it was so important to me that they were right – they were for my daughter! 🙂

      Thank you. Someone has suggested that they would make good Christmas tree decorations so I might be making some more. 🙂
