Sparkles are a good thing

Happy Holidays Everyone!  There are just eight more days until Christmas.  Are you ready?


We took a break this afternoon from holiday prepping for Snowman Mystery Class #2.  

I amped up the party just a bit with blue velvet cake.  How could I resist?  It's the perfect shade of blue to go with the class project.  And all of you ladies who support my designing and come to class deserved a special treat.  Wish you all could have come.


This was an easy class.  The white borders are padded and sparkly!  The turquoise background is a simple zig zag that mimics the triangle trees and is worked in the most luscious of overdyed silk perle from Australia.


His face is framed in sequins that look like a broadway marquee.


He's a cute little guy and I'm so happy we are stitching him.


Next up we start stitching trees!  So many possibilities....

Cake does look amazing...but have to ask if you all had blue teeth? :-)
Love what you did with the snowman, I liked that canvas from the first. Have a great week!

No, blue teeth. It's safe to eat. Glad you like the snowman :-)

Oh, did you send us the recipe for the cake so we can make one to eat as we stitch? Looks amazing! Can't wait to get the sparkles in the mail this week. I have a week off between Christmas and New Years and can work on Mr. Snowman then.

You can order the cake at www.carouselcakes.com. It's one of Oprah's favorite things.
