Cupcake Magic

Hi there,

This week I'm starting on the background so it doesn't hold me back at the end.  It's a plaid, so you do a running stitch ALL one way and then ALL the way the other way.  It's a lot of work but it pays off in the end.

Here's some photos of the cupcake.  I found I needed to do the cupcake in order to anchor the running stitches.  The french knots are flair.  I attached the beads with clear beading thread.

And here's the bigger picture...still tons of work to do

Have a great week,



  1. Linda, that is beautiful. I would never have thought of doing a such a subtle plaid. I love it!

    1. Thanks Lin, it will look even better when I do the stitching the other way!
