"eat CAKE"...










...eat CAKE with cherries on top...and pink frosting.
...and if you are going to eat cake, by all means...eat it with a vintage silver fork:)
I finished it today and tied it up with tule and ric-rac.
This is the class I will be teaching at the American Quilting retreat next month. I designed it especially for the retreat but will also be putting it into a pattern very soon.
The staff will be cutting kits (which will include all fabric, wool felt, embellishments and buttons)for those who will be taking the class...and I will be providing a vintage fork for each student....of course Mr. Honey will drill the hole in the top of each fork, so it is ready to hang.
This was a really fun project to design and also to make.
"eat CAKE" means...enjoy all the good things that life has to offer...and do it with style!

I wondered what you would be teaching at the retreat. How fun! I sure wish I could take your class. My son in laws favorite word and food when he was a little boy was "Cake!"

I love it! The colors you chose are so "happy"! I would love to have a kit. Can you let me know where I can get one? I was working on my "paper dolls" this morning. Everytime I do, I think of you! Just can't wait for your fabric line and patterns.

Lori, this just could not possibly be any cuter than what it is! And I love the way you revealed it to us little by little. Thanks for sharing your amazing talent with us. Yes, life is good and we are so much more fortunate than we may realize at a given time in our life.

You know, everytime I come to visit here, every new blog is a work of art!
Honestly, I don't know how you do it, but it's always a pleasure and your work is also a pleasure to view.
