I'm Finally Finished!!

Hooray the cupcakes are all done !!
I sewed and sewed Friday and Saturday evenings and woke on Sunday with 200 ribbons still to sew on.
I prepared my area ::
armchair turned to face the TV, pouffe to rest my feet on, remote control and cupakes, ribbon, thread and scissors within easy reach!
I started at 10am, I had got half way through by the end of Columbo and I FINALLY finished about 6:30pm
I was exhausted !!
but just look at all the cupcake-y-ness ::
It's very hard to photograph 340 cupcakes in just 20 minutes (couldn't be late for work), I tried laying them out, all nice and neat ::
but I ran out of room and still had this many left to lay out ::
So I filled in all the spaces I could see with cupcakes ::
...it came out slightly blurry but I was stood on a slightly wobbly stool !!!
The lady who ordered them should be here any minute (she was due at 4pm but got stuck behind a nasty accident on the M3) and then I shall be cupcake-less :-)
I'm taking John out for dinner tonight to say thank-you for putting up with me and my cupcakes :-) But from tomorrow I shall be back to normal around here....see you later...

Oh my god! I bet you were sad to see them go, NOT! Well done on getting the order and completing it!

The picture looks brilliant of all of them on the floor, it looks like a postcard I have from paperchase!

what a mammoth task - well done you - i look forward to seeing them in the shop windows you mentioned (Marlow is not very far from me so I might pop over there and take a look).
I hope you gave out a big stack of moo cards for the shops to give away on your behalf - i'm sure they will have lots of enquiries...

Good job no-one has to eat that many cupcakes! That would take almost as much doing as the photo Well done though.
