I’m having great fun here at Cushion & Cake. I’m baking a Dorset Apple Traybake and while I wait for that I thought I’d get an update on the wee blog.

Business has been fine over the last few days. Some days are inexplicably quiet, other days are inexplicably busy, I can’t see any trends as yet and I suppose I might not ever. I just have to be prepared each day to be busy.

During quiet periods I’ve found some time to make some little things to sell in the shop. I’ve been enjoying a bit of stamping and making simple but cute cards.

As well as making some cards myself, I met a lovely woman last week, an illustrator who made cards. The lettering us cut out in her cards and features greetings in Gaelic, a wee bit of Scottish culture which may appeal to tourists of people who have relatives living abroad. The little rosettes for example are detachable so when the card is used, you still have a wee something to keep.

I’ve made some new cushions too with lovely fabric I found when I was out and about.

I feel quite inspired being in the shop each day and go home with more ideas on what kind of things I’d like to make. I’ve got a custom cushion order to get ready tonight so I’d better get on.
