These lovely flowers I grew from seeds. They came out with a few different shapes and various nuances of purple to red! Mutation? They are called Poppy Pionee "Black Dragon".

Here are the red version from the same seeds. And a single smaller variety in the background. With the lovely view of Gåsö Söderudd.

This years cupcake baking was done in the name of pastels. With my lovely helpers, Moa and Hannah, we created yummy and colourful cakes. Lime (even though we coloured the mixture pink) and chocolate!
Me, Ankan, adding the icing to the baked cakes, ready for decorating.

We coloured the lime mixture pink! Girly!

Blueberries grow wild on the island of Gåsö! Looks lovely on the blue icing.

Some of the finished cupcakes! Use any muffin recipe and let your imagination run wild!

Sorry for not having blogged lately. I have started my summer holidays and have spent a lot of time contemplating. Got some handicraft energy and finished the oven mitt that I started about two years ago. Not bad result...and practical...whatever next?

This was my last assignment at college (doing an HND in Graphic Design at Gloucester College, UK) before breaking up for the summer holidays. The idea was to be inspired by the famous American artist Wayne Whites work and find an old painting (worthless) to paint a sentence or word on (of your own choice). This painting has been living in our garage for a while (owned by my stepdaughter and bought because of the nice frame. I chose "who do you think you are" since I find that a  lot of people should ask themselves that question (including myself) today! Was part of the student exhibition at Gloucester College in June.
