We started celebrating! The first day of fair went perfect. Only a touch of rain. I met lots of very nice people and today hopefully will be the same.
I made this cake from Styrofoam and chemise and my sister Georgia made a whole box of ribbon roses and shipped them to be as fast as she could. I promised her some photos so here they are I hope you enjoy them
I was shocked at how very many people had to reach out to touch this fabric cake and see if it was real. It is providing some great amusement.
On a mommy note; when my kids were babies and children I learned to be a night person so I could sew. In the 70's we mostly sewed everything we needed to wear and I loved the quiet, uninterrupted night work. That served me again with this cake. It was a real pleasure to do this between the hours of 1am and 3am because I didn't have to stop a million times and redo what didn't work. It just fell together.
See you at the fair!
