What the.....????? Two blog posts in less than 24 hours? Correct. No fabric yet. Zilch. Nil. Still waiting, sitting on the front porch, doing my best to lure UPS drivers onto the property.
I did receive some good new yesterday. First of all - this came in the mail.Our friend Carrie's new book. Our copy is autographed with a personal note. We are beside ourselves. Carrie makes the most sophisticated quilts very easy - and of course, with pre-cuts. It doesn't get better than that. Reserve your copy now.
Secondly, we have very good news in Casa Simpson. Lorelei is getting married! We are giddy and weepy at the same time. Lorelei and Dan will hitch-up sometime this winter in Dallas. It will be a small, low-key affair. So low-key that Lori has asked me for a special gift. She has asked me to make the wedding cake! I have made many birthday cakes, but this will be a first.
I am cramming for the final, so to speak. This arrived yesterday.
I am taking Ms. Wilson's word for it and crossing my fingers. All of you out there who are wont to do it - please light candles, say prayers, and beseech the universe for good cake karma. I wouldn't want the day to suffer because of a cake mis-hap. Like these poor people here (all following content and photos are from cakewrecks.blogspot.com)
Imagine the happy couple taking this photo into their baker and asking for an elegant blue cake just like a Tiffany's box. Lovely, isn't it.
Unfortunately, this is what the baker delivered on the big day.Let's hope I don't have a bit of a brain freeze and do something like this. Such a lovely cake, but a bit of a spelling problem.
Or how about this poor, poor couple who gave this photo of their dream cake to the baker. Elegant, sophisticated, and evident of either the bride or groom's Scottish heritage. Beautiful. Sadly, this is what arrived.
This will be the fodder for my nightmares in the upcoming weeks. Later.
