I will let you know in my next post whether this worked or not! It's in the oven at the moment. I wanted a heart cake for tonight, but only used 2 oz of flour, etc so it turned out a bit small... We'll see. I'd bought the tin today, as £1.99 seemed too good to leave it in the shop.
which soon became two hearts...
you get the idea. It's a beautiful thick linen mix. Absolutely lushness through and through. And all mine. : )
Another fabric I love and dug out - see the creases?! This one was stored so badly, and I feel cross with myself, but nothing a good iron hasn't fixed. I've left these stored simply because they are so difficult to cut into. It actually physically hurt to cut into them. But I managed it:
And I have to say, I'm rather pleased.
I've made some mini scatter cushions, with those and other stored fabric. Cough cough. And they are pretty.
The more you cut, the easier it gets. I'll keep practising.
Now, the ducks. I just had to show you our ducks.
They were so funny the other morning. The mallard drake is interested in the female. But the Chinese mallard (at least, I think he's a Chinese mallard) is having none of it, despite the fact he's pint-sized compared to the drake.
He got quite agressive. And the drake got nowhere!
Just had to include those pics!
Right, I'll go and see what a disaster is unfolding in the oven. Thanks so much for popping by.
