Professor Bead-it

Yesterday, the Diva decided to teach me how to make the scrumptious felt tea cakes she'd made at Hip Stitch Studio awhile back.  I was a tad apprehensive as the Diva is alot like me in that she lacks a certain amount of, ahem, patience.

Here, the Diva's showing me how to sew sprinkles (beads) onto the tea cake icing.  The cake in the background is one she made at Hip Stitch.

Here, I'm getting a lesson on the blanket stitch and applying icing to the cake.
Uh-oh..she's pursing her lips.  I'm in trouble now.

Our completed tea cakes...don't they look awesome!

She made it...she taught an old dog tricks she already knew new tricks and looks quite pleased with herself! 

Frankly, I like playing dumb. On the one hand, it means a confidence booster because they're teaching me something and have to be patient because I'm old and feeble.  On the other hand, it means the Co-Defendants underestimate me and don't get away with near as much as they'd like...but that's fuel for another post.

Happy Wednesday, y'all!

  1. It is good for their confidence. The problem comes when another SA sibling points out you are doing it!

    Nice job, Diva and Mama
