Put this together yesterday for EAL's 20% off sale - gorgeous red and lots of hearts as well. There were so many treasuries, over 700 when they opened again yesterday! I thought that I'd crashed it, but it eventually came to life...

When my friend Angela asked for suggestions about how to deal with the problem of too much real birthday cake being served at her kids' long day care centre, I was wondering whether a felt cake would be the answer. At Isobel's pre-school, they used to have a wooden cake which they put candles on, sang Happy Birthday and the birthday kid "cut" the cake with a wooden "knife". So, would felt work? I think it would. I have made a sample slice for Angela to show the daycare centre. If they like it, I'll make a 6-slice cake with interchangeable Happy Birthday ribbons around it. Here's the sample: What do you think?

Credit for the pie's invention is claimed by Ian Dowding and Nigel Mackenzie of The Hungry Monk restaurant in Jevington, East Sussex. They claim to have invented the pie in 1972, and the restaurant's exterior bears a blue plaque to that effect. The dish, with various stories of its source, spread, and in 1994 a number of supermarkets began selling it as an American pie, leading Dowding and Mackenzie to offer a £10,000 prize to anyone who could disprove their claim.

1) Alchemy order sweater for a lovely fellow-Etsian - the yarn is Bamboo and I'm crazy about it - so soft and silky. Here's a picture of the tension sample:
2) Samples for a new Etsy shop I'm starting with my friend Cassy. She has come up with some brilliant ideas for decorating onesies and tee shirts for kids. Here's a sneak preview:
3) Samples for sites such as Neatostuff.com, plus finishing off a few custom orders too!
4) Alchemy bid - PDF files for felt fruit and veggies... my specialty!
Hopefully in a lull I can get some more pie slices up on Etsy to sell. I'm glad school has started again!
