Not Cupcakes

I can't do icing shouldn't do eating, I'll have to be content with looking

and drooling and make dyed woolly brooches instead.

My Mum found a lovely cream woollen blanket at a jumble sale and gave it to me for my now departed dog, Daisy, (yes!) to sleep on.
I saw its potential and before you could say 'English Pointer' I had it chopped up and immersed in dye. It came out in these lovely Dolly Mixture/iced cupcake colours.
Good enough to eat.
And calorie free.

Ooh these are much more scrummy! And I love the calorie-free idea too. I only wish everything nice was 'diet'.

well they certainly do look good enough to eat, such great color combinations!

Terri Stegmiller said...

These do indeed look quite yummy.

Well..... you have made my day, not only did I laugh out loud but you have made something good enough to eat and without the calories and colourings!

These are gorgeous, would look great on ATCs or postcards, colours are great! (we could do a swap)

They sure are delightful! I love the colors and the stitches. Everything here on your blog is so inspiring!

So sorry for your loss of Daisy. My website is named for my late dog, Jaspy's, nickname.

I am loving all of the photos on your blog. Thanks so much for sharing them with everyone! Marilyn
