October already? Really???!!

Oh my! Where has the time gone? My day job keeps me pretty busy, but I have managed a wee bit of creative stuff (even if I haven’t managed to reopen my online shop)

I am still in love with miniature work and have done a couple of Very Berry Handmade hoop and artist trading card swaps…as well as a gift of some really minute embroidered brooches.

I love embroidering animals – particularly birds and this kingfisher was one of my favourites.

There have been a few cards and pet portraits…

…and the days when I wake up with an image in my head and just want to give it a go!

A couple of my friends have had babies…which always calls for turning soft gloves in to cats and dogs!

However, the outstanding memory will be my ‘Summer of Cakes’. I only make cakes for friends and family – not a business – but there have been quite a few this Summer. I have been decorating cakes since I was a child; my first wedding cake being my sister’s wedding cake when I was 16.

This Summer’s wedding cakes called for modelling…both in fondant…

…and in paper.

And now? Well now it is full steam ahead towards Christmas!
