So I reduced the Paisley cane today (half way through writing the post just waiting on the pictures) and am ready to start on putting together the polymer clay 'fabric' to coat the cake forks with. I have talked to my husband before about my lack of skill at cutting even slices from canes and shown him a picture of some of the cane cutting tools you can buy (in America but not easily in the UK of course). He said, "I am off to play in the garage, don't start cutting yet!" and was gone. I am hoping he is inventing me a cane slicing aid. I will let you know the outcome and will get the pictures of the now small Paisley cane uploaded.
I am Cara Jane Hayman aka Surfingcat. I live in Bristol with my lovely husband and 2 (mainly) lovely children who are 5 and nearly 7 years old. They keep me busy and I teach in a local school 1 day a week but when I have a moment what I love to do is make things (oh and surf the internet). The surfingcat thing came about in the good old days when I used to do some real surfing - the wet kind!
