But first things first...I have been absent for a while...Christmas was way busy, and then my health took a battering. It is continuing to be awful...but I still draw breath, she said crossing herself and muttering an imaginary rosary.
'Tis true, I did become a trifle concerned. My husband wasn't home, the waters were rising, and was that dribble running down my back or cold sweat?
Cut to the chase, my husband arrived home, got the laser out and eased my fears. The waters would have to rise another metre before it came into the house, and thankfully it stopped rising just before dark. By morning it had completely abated...but OK it was a nice bit of drama to jolt me from my creative slump...segue to cake toppers.
This afternoon I got an enquiry about one my hessian "Engaged" banners. The prospective buyer wondered if I could do a cake topper to match the banner. As Barney Stinson would say, "Challenge accepted!"
Flood-bored, I got to work and meticulously stencilled this linen/cotton...on both sides. I am not sure if I could have found a quicker way to do this...but it was satisfying to do SOMETHING! It reminded me of the times my sister and I would make furniture and little household knick-knacks for our Barbie's.
