A super long day...

John left for his week away at 5:15 am. I insisted he woke me so I could say goodbye, but once he'd got on his way I was wide awake and thought my time could be put to some good use :-) So this morning I knitted my 'worm' and put the finishing stitches in these cupcakes!
I felt a little Christmassy when I was packing up all these parcels....most are the freebies, so if you won then your prize is on it's way...

Yesterday I finished knitting my 2nd green square, and i've just got back from buying some more wool.....I intend to make a softie of some description!!This evening I shall be sitting on the sofa in a panic. I just had an order confirmed for a minimum of 340 cupcakes, maybe upto 680! The main reason for the panic is they need to be delivered by 17th March.....aaaaaahhhhhhh!!! Goodness me that is a lot of cupcakes! In my head I am skipping over the cutting out part and the sewing part and concentrating on the photos at the end....that many cupcakes will look SO cool !!!
I'm off to tidy away all my WIPs and make room for a mini cupcake making factory.....

wow - 340 cupcakes is massive, 680 is even more massive. I can imagine you must be delighted and scared to death at the same time.

maybe you need to start subcontracting to all your friends in blogland - or have a cupcakeathon where you you invite all your friends and family round to have a big cupcake making session!
