Cake...


Not much to write about, so I'm posting two of yesterday's photos. Lilly is the squirrel in the green dress, with assorted siblings crowded about her. The cake is now gone. Contrary to how it may have looked, it was a supremely tasty chocolate layer cake, entirely from 'scratch', and the hands and mind of a twelve year old. Even the frostings... both of them.
Tomorrow is the first day of the shop being open. I may have an awful go of it, but Melly, good-natured and always up for a bit of fun, has graciously offered her services to 'Clementine' for the big day. I suspect she may want front row seats for my undoing, but I'll not turn away good help, especially when it's attached to a such a beaming personality. She's cute, too... never mind what you hear about girls with 'good personalities'... I'm bringing the coffee, Miss M... see you tomorrow! Cami

Cami, your kids are great . . . they have that signature "learning at home" look about them that I love. :o)

Best of luck today!

C - glad I got to talk to you yesterday and that you actually had people in the shop. There would be nothing worse than nobody showing up but Melly and the UPS Man :{

Can't wait to hear how the day went, especially the closing procedures. As I said yesterday - you need samples knit? (I won't make quilt tops, but I'd be happy to make some skirts from your great quilting cottons, tood) Send them on over - g :o}
