Knitted Forget-me-not Cup Cakes



Hi,

At last a lovely day, a little chilly and we still have the wind, the sky is blue with the sun is shining.

Although I had a mixed weekend with feeling not too bad, and a little pain, yesterday and today I have more pain and not feeling too good. We did manage to go out on Saturday night and had a lovely meal out something we have not done very much this year. It was lovely to be out with no cooking and washing up for a change.

These cup cakes I am calling forget-me-not, I do love forget-me-nots with the delicate blue flowers, at the moment I don't have any in the garden but as soon as I feel better and back to gardening I want to get some plants. Gary and Melissa came over on Friday night with Bethany our grand daughter she loved my cup cakes so I gave her one. I was trying out a different pattern with a basket pattern for the base but I did not like it so I gave her my try out. She loves it and thinks they make great pin cushions. I think I shall have to sell them as pin cushions now!!

This is a close up, each flower has four petals made in tatting with Lizbeth thread no 20 Turquoise Twist. I sewed beads seperate in the centres and dotted around the top of the cup cake.


I hope you are keeping well and the ash cloud does not affect you yet. We fly to Italy in July so hopefully it will have clear out of the way by then.

Until we meet again Take care,

Hugs

Margaret
