Minnesota’s State Flower Showy Lady’s Slipper from "State Flowers charted for cross stitch & needlepoint" by Carol Wilson Mansfield (published by Leasure Arts).
It is 13.5" wide by 12.25" tall.
It is made with Perler/Hama/Nabbi fuse beads.
I made it on August 5, 2010.

I’ve probably waited the longest to share this cake with you all. How long you ask?? well, just a few days over a year…but its finally here and I’m so glad I can now show you my folk art inspired cake which I created for Magazin Magie des Zuckers , August 2014 edition. The inspiration board sent out was Folk art inspired and I loved it the moment I saw it.
Taking elements from the board, I added a few of my own….like all of my cakes, I wanted this cake to tell a story as well. I pictured a gypsy caravan, studded with bright and vibrant coloured rugs , shawls , scarfs some with hand embroidered cross stitch patterns and beaded necklaces- hence the bright red tier. I saw old Chinaware..which you could tell had withstood the time and travels as it had the cracked pattern on it- this I incorporated on top and bottom tiers- the cracked glass effect. Where do the flowers and berries come in from?? the pattern on the scarves of course 😉 !
