Minnie and Flo are on my mind. When Jane emailed me and was disappointed that the Minnie and Flo having Tea Potholder that I made had been sold, I told her I’d make another one for her. Then Jane told me how she was “big on tea with little finger sandwiches, scones, cookies and mini cupcakes.” Oh how I loved to hear that. I had High Tea once. Three hours of sitting in a basement tea house in Greenwich Village eating tiny sandwich, after tiny sweet thing, after tiny sandwich. I could have sat there for three hours more. So when I made the potholder for Jane, I knew Minnie and Flo would have to have some tiny pink cupcakes at least.
When I first start working at the beginning of each day, I’m always a bit nervous. Maybe today will be the day I have no more ideas, or can’t make them work. Than, at some point, I start having fun. It usually doesn’t take long. Today it only took one Minnie and Flo Potholder and some tiny cupcakes for the fun to begin.
