I have been working on new designs for my website. This cupcake is one of the new pieces. For the bottom I machine quilted the polk a dot fabric and added matching polka dot trim. I hand sewed the pink satin roses to look like buttercreme flowers. This was alot more labor intesive than I thought it would be. (It always is :) ) So I have some thinking to do, but overall I am happy with it.
I would love to introduce you to my new friend Rose. She owns a beautiful shop in Bothell Washington called Sweet Hummingbird Lane. She carries the most awesome collectables such as Bunnies By the Bay, Susan Branch and Wee Forest Folk. She is an avid collector of the Wee Forest Folk and is very knowledgable and able to help her customers who are also collectors. These sweet mice are meticulously hand sculpted by the Peterson Family in Massachusetts. Rose also has a website and its so pretty. Have a look and be sure to see the mice! Just too cute for words. http://www.sweethummingbirdlane.com/ . Have a great week and I hope you are enjoying your summer. Gail
