It’s been one of those lovely days where I’ve baked, visited and enjoyed morning tea with a friend, and completed our birthday gift for Sunday . . . all with a three year old trying to get me to participate in her one child concert, make me pretend to be her baby and generally chatter all day.
The cupcakes have come up really well and I’m so happy with them. They look almost good enough to eat . . . especially once I mastered my cherry pattern. But I’m most pleased with my decision to re-work the placement of the flowers on the hat.
I’ve laid them along the rim and they look both more natural and more appealing to the eye. I feel more sure that the birthday girl’s mother will be more likely to let her child wear the hat than the way I had it before.
And that’s the craftiness over for this part of the day. Best get out and mow those lawns before the big storm comes tonight. I had been crossing my fingers that it’d rain much earlier but, alas, I’m out of luck so better get to it.
