Baking a Diaper Cake (Crafty Grandmas!)

First let me say... it's not as easy as it looks. I thought (wrongly) that the diapers would be arranged flat against each other somehow. That didn't work at all. It's obvious they have to be wrapped. So we wrapped them with scotch tape.That is the only way it worked.

Emily held them while I wired around them and then we wrapped the bow over the wire.

We had a lot of fun decorating.. I still need two yellow roses and the resin bees to complete it but it will look like this:

firstly, you are such a young cute granny! secondly, remind me not to eat any cake from you.

and on a totally different issue, i enjoyed using the drop spindle, although i made thick ugly overspun crap with it, but it made me really really want to spin with a real wheel. so i knit at night, or if i am too tired to work, and i spin the rest of the time. it is really relaxing. a lot like knitting, but like knitting on a roller coaster. like cabling, but more exciting. hard to believe? like selling a mansion!
