Sew Sorry For Myself

My head hurts! I had too much vino calapso yesterday so it's definitely going to be a day of rest today. The theme over at LIM today is sewing.


I've made a handbag card with contrast hand stitching around the outside. The Radleyesque doggies have been cut using my Cricut.

Before I go to lie down in a darkened room I want to share with you an old Scottish recipe for fruit cake. You'll need the following: a cup of water, a cup of sugar, four large eggs, two cups of dried fruit, a teaspoon of baking soda, a teaspoon of salt, a cup of brown sugar, lemon juice, nuts, and a bottle of whisky.

Sample the whisky to check for quality.

Take a large bowl. Check the whisky again. To be sure it is the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer, beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar and beat again.

Make sure the whisky is still okay. Cry another tup. Turn off the mixer. Break two leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers pry it loose with a drewscriver.

Sample the whisky to check for tonsisticity. Next, sift two cups of salt. Or something. Who cares? Check the whisky. Now sift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Spoon. Of sugar or something. Whatever you can find.

Grease the oven. Turn the cake tin to 350 degrees. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Throw the bowl out of the window, check the whisky again and go to bed.

Hic!

Thanks for looking and have a great weekend.

  19. This is so nice. In how much time this should be designed? I am working for the Plastic Cards Printing company, can I copy this for printing on my cards?
