A Duck and a Cake

A bit of a double post this week. I know last time I said I wouldn't show you the puppets but I am really happy with puppet two so decided to give you a sneaky peek.


I have spent all day today making puppet three and just have ears, eyes and arms to stitch on. I needed a break and something to eat so thought I would do this blog and have some tea before I get on with it.

On the cake side, I had an attempt at a giant cupcake. It turned out okay, though it very nearly landed in a heap when it slid off the improvised turntable in the middle of doing the frosting. Luckily DH sprang to the rescue and the cake was saved. It went down well despite a few gaps between the flowers (I think it was only me that noticed anyway).



I'm off to Handmade Harbour, see you there. http://handmadeharbour.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/handmade-monday-193.html
